Peoria Center for the Performing Arts

8355 W. Peoria Ave. Peoria, AZ 85345 | Peoria | 623-815-7930

Location Description:

The city of Peoria completed construction of this state-of-the-art performance venue in 2007. Its located in the heart of downtown Peoria and is home to resident theater group, Theater Works. The main stage auditorium seats 280 while a smaller, black-box theater accommodates more intimate works with about 80 seats. We love the lobby's visual arts gallery as well as the building's modern architecture and awesome copper roof. Though the parking lot could be bigger, we don't mind parking a bit away and walking up since we get to take in the building as we approach. Its a cute and cozy space that fits in well with the vibe of the West Valley community it serves.
