The Performing Arts Center (PAC) is a unique four-theatre complex, considered one of the finest facilities on an East Coast college campus. The PAC presents an annual professional series in music, dance, theatre, cinema, and family programming. Faculty and staff members with a current Purchase College ID card are eligible for $25 discounted tickets for most Center Series performances. Full-time students with a current Purchase College ID card receive a 50% discount on advance tickets to Center Series events. Additionally, $5 student rush tickets are made available to Purchase College students for most performances, starting at noon on the day of each performance.

Please note: Discounted tickets must be purchased in person at the PAC box office. The limit is two tickets per ID. These discounts apply to Center Series events only and are not available for rental or college events. Discounts are subject to availability and may not be combined with any other offer. Other faculty, staff, and student discounts may be offered for conservatory events.

To receive up-to-the-minute information about performances and discounts, follow the PAC on Facebook or Twitter. Also, be sure to check your Purchase email account for event announcements and special offers, which are sent to the campus community on a regular basis.

The PAC features professional performance spaces, including the 1,300-seat Concert Hall with hydraulic lifts for orchestra; the 450-seat Recital Hall with rear-screen projection bay; the 700-seat PepsiCo Theatre with Hanamichi wraparound platforms along both sides of the house; and the Repertory Theatre, a “black box” theatre with completely flexible stage and seating configurations.
