The majority of our events take place in the Reed L. Buffington Visual & Performing Arts Center, which is a 1,432 seat auditorium hosting over 100 diverse events each year. Our regular events include theatrical performances, fundraisers, arts competitions and live concerts. In addition to extensive backstage features, we have our own hard-working production staff, including a stage management crew, lighting and sound operators, and a strong Front of House team.
