As MVCPA's premiere theater, MainStage illustrates the seamless integration of aesthetics and technology. Arranged in a sweeping arch, the theater's 600 seats provide excellent, unobstructed sight lines. This seating plan maximizes capacity while minimizing theater depth - the last row is only 68 feet from the stage. MainStage feels intimate...to the performer and audience alike.
High above the orchestra seats, dramatic sky-blue ribbons seemingly flow and billow along the ceiling. But these beautiful sculptures are not mere adornments. In fact, they are acoustical panels that enhance and focus sound projection, helping to create the superior acoustics of MainStage.
The theater's stage has various technical features - three lifts, movable splay walls, variable proscenium - which allow it to be freely adapted to meet the needs of virtually any event.
A unique octagon shape distinguishes this lovely theater as an ideal space for smaller productions and meetings. With moveable seats and risers, the space can be transformed to create an intimate cabaret, a theater-in-the-round, or a traditional concert setting. With a potential seating capacity of up to 200, SecondStage is a versatile setting for any type of performance, meeting or event.
Adjacent to verdant Pioneer Park, MVCPA's amphitheatre accommodates an audience of 300 with lawn seating. A delightful place to stage a casual outdoor concert.
