About the PAC

The centerpiece of arts at EMCC is the Performing Arts Center (PAC) – a 30,000 square-foot free standing fine arts building at the Avondale campus. The PAC opened its doors to students in fall 2015, and is home to individualized learning areas, including a dedicated Black Box Theater, a Dance Studio, a Media Technical Laboratory, a Costume Shop, and a Music Studio. Entering the PAC, guests are greeted by a gallery providing exhibition space for local, national, student, and faculty art shows, with a beautiful light sculpture titled "Breaking Sound" hanging above the lobby. The Main Theater, seating almost 300, is equipped with state-of-the-art technologies (i.e., digital projection capabilities) and professional structures (e.g., pipe grid, crossover orchestra pit and pit lift platform).

For information about renting space in the PAC, please email or call 623-935-8141
