Support Tuacahn Center for the Arts, a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, as we raise $3.8 million for the construction of a new Arts Center and expanded amphitheatre seating. This 19,000 square foot expansion project includes:
- Music conservatory with practice rooms
- Dance studio with rehearsal space
- Art Gallery
- ShowCare facilities (child care)
- New restaurant
- Expanded Gift Gallery
- 200 lawn-style seats on the sides of the amphitheatre.
The new Arts Center will better serve our guests, meet theatrical rehearsal needs, and provide space for expanding the student capacity at Tuacahn High School for the Performing Arts. THS provides a college preparatory education with an emphasis on the arts for grades 9 through 12. As a state-funded public charter school there is no tuition to attend.
