The Lewis Center for the Arts produces over 100 events every year, many of them under the Programs in Theater and Dance. In addition, The LCA is opening a new arts complex in the fall of 2017 and expanding our operations, performance spaces and staff. A 3,600-square-foot dance theater with flexible seating for up to 120 and a 3,600-square-foot black box theater with flexible seating for up to 150 will augment the existing 350 seat Berlind Theater. The new complex will also house acting studios, dance studios, a design studio, a lighting lab and a separate music wing. This expansion and addition of state of the art equipment and technology provides the opportunity for increased learning by our students as well as a great opportunity for the right individual to join our production team in a new and vital role.
