PAC Online

Mission Statement: Maintain a safe, attractive and inclusive facility that serves the public and provides a wide range of enlightening and engaging arts and entertainment in a comfortable setting, which contributes to the vitality of the City and its neighboring communities.

Opened in 1977, the PAC was designed with a special emphasis on staging, lighting and acoustic conductivity. The PAC is known as the cultural apex of Tulsa. It houses five separate performance areas and one large reception hall in one building, including the 2,365-seat Chapman Music Hall with seating on three levels, another proscenium theatre seating 430 and three studio theatres. The facility added a beautifully appointed reception hall and additional restrooms. Tulsa Symphony, Tulsa Opera, Tulsa Ballet, American Theatre Company, to name a few, all call the PAC home. National touring companies and other local community groups use the facilities as well.
