Austin-East Magnet High School student performers have the opportunity to share their talents with the community in an amazing performance space. The Performing Arts Center seats 390 audience members with four designated wheelchair accessible viewing areas. The theater is equipped with a fly system also known as a theatrical rigging system. This system is unique for a high school theater, enabling stage crew members to hoist components such as curtains, lights, scenery, stage effects quickly, quietly and safely. The performance space also has a large dressing area as well as a workspace area that allows students to build sets and stage props.
