Performing Arts Center
The Performing Arts Center San Luis Obispo is world-class venue showcasing sweeping musicals and cutting-edge music for over 25 years. Recently updated with a state-of-art sound system, lighting and seating, the PAC has not only harnessed the transformative power of performance, but has also become the hub of the community. Located on the beautiful Central Coast of California, on the California Polytechnic State University campus, the PAC is comprised of several venues, including the majestic 1,286-seat Harold Miossi Hall, the 498-seat Alex & Faye Spanos Theatre, the 180-seat classroom Philips Hall, and the multi-purpose Pavilion, which holds up to 400 people. The PAC transcends all boundaries to enrich the cultural lives of theatre goers, including offering a free, community-sponsored, matinee program for local students across the several counties. This opportunity has given thousands of school-age children a chance to experience artistic greatness, first-hand. From electrifying onstage artistry to fostering intellectual growth, it’s no wonder the Performing Arts Center San Luis Obispo has earned its reputation as one of the region’s crown jewels, offering spectacular performances and drawing crowds year after year.
