The Performing Arts Complex is one of the East Bay's premier live event venues, and is accessible to Chabot College and the community. We support student success in education, progress in the workplace and engagement with the civic and cultural life of the diverse East Bay community.
The majority of our events take place in the Performing Arts Center, which is a 1,432 seat auditorium hosting over 100 diverse events each year. Our 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.
The Performing Arts Complex also includes a 200 seat intimate blackbox theatre and a small recital hall, which mostly host events for the college's Music and Theatre Arts departments.
