The theater is envisioned as the catalyst for the school’s long-term goals of advancing its arts programs and to help shape the future of the overall campus. The theater will be used for school events, such as dance, drama, theatre and music education, school assemblies, and temple functions; professional performance groups; and artist + student workshops.

The Center is slated for completion in fall 2019.
