Rental Rates for Swartz Creek Performing Arts Center

The Swartz Creek Performing Arts Center is a multi-faceted complex attached to the Swartz Creek High School. It contains a choir room, a band room, a drama room that doubles as a make-up area, a scene shop as well as scenery storage, properties storage, and costume storage. The crowning jewel of the facility is a 650 seat fully fitted theatre. The theatre includes a counterweight under hung fly system, orchestra pit, and state of the art lighting and sound. The Performing Arts Center is available for school events, community events, and corporate events.

 

Large Classroom located in the hallway behind the stage and is 1093 square feet and has a single bathroom located within the room. There are also large gang bathrooms abutting this room and accessible from the hall.

 

Note: The Large Classroom can be divided to create individual classrooms or as separate make-up and dressing facilities.

 

The Choir Room is at the corner of the back hallway and the main hallway. It is a large room at 1718 square feet and is very suitable for vocal rehearsals and large meetings.

 

The Band Room is located in the main hallway and is 3216 square feet. It is perfect for rehearsing everything from small ensembles to a full orchestra. It will have seating for approximately 135 members.

 

The Scene Shop is conveniently located at the rear of the building with a large loading door that has direct access to the stage. The shop is 1402 square feet and will have several work areas. We are currently dividing the space into dedicated areas. At the current time, the shop does not have work tables or tools. It does have a deep utility sink for easy clean-up.

 

The Theatre Lobby is located at the front of the building and can be used in several ways. Obviously, it can be used as a lobby for theatre rentals but it can also be used as a great display area for art, advertising, promotions or registrations. Its 2704 square feet can also be used for a bright and vibrant meeting area as well. If set up for a conference we can seat 120. Another great use of this space is as a small banquet facility. We can host approximately 80 people seated at 10 round tables. This is a very versatile space and can be set up to meet your needs. It also has a box office, a concessions area, and coat storage.   There are two large public restrooms located at the east end next to the box office.

 

The Theatre is the focal point of the facility and has several wonderful features. First of all, this state of the art theatre has wonderful acoustic and is fully equipped to meet almost any need. It is a mid-sized house of 652 (644 standard seats and 8 wheelchair accessible locations, the seating can be reconfigured to accommodate 638 standard seats and 14 wheelchair accessible spots). It is a traditional proscenium stage of 36 feet deep and 50 feet wide. The stage also had plenty of wing space for a total width of 97 feet. The orchestra pit can be covered as well offering an additional 13 feet of apron. It has a full array of curtains and a counterweight fly system with a full complement of lighting and quality sound equipment. You can get more on the lighting and sound equipment by reading the Technical Specification information. The theatre also has a projector and screen that makes it perfect for business meetings and presentations. The theatre can be booked for full-blown stage productions and concerts, to corporate and sales meetings and everything in between.

 

The Swartz Creek Performing Arts Center is booked for many school-related events after all our students do come first, but it was also built to be part of our community. If you are interested in using the facility for your next event, please contact the PAC office and we will be glad to assist you in any way we can.
