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).
