  1. 1. San AngeloPerforming Arts Center<br />Envision <br />San Angelo’s <br />next BIG Project<br />
  2. 2. Why?<br />While cooperating when possible, San Angelo’s lead performing arts organizations face challenges and lack synergy, and San Angelo lacks a modern space for the performing arts.<br />Angelo Civic Theatre operates its venue on Sherwood Way, but the 60-year-old converted movie theatre shows its age and presents limitations.<br /> The San Angelo Civic Ballet operates in a variety of converted former stores <br /> on Beauregard and Chadbourne. Studios are overcrowded, not physically connected, child safety and lack of parking poses a problem.<br /> The San Angelo Symphony lacks rehearsal space and storage. The 90-year-old City Auditorium where it performs has great need for improved stage, back of-house amenities, and handicap access.<br /> The San Angelo Cultural Affairs Council office is in a converted hotel room, and performances for its Cactus Jazz Series are held in the hotel lobby.<br /> San Angelo does not have a venue to accommodate and produce traveling shows.<br />

  19. 19. If we build it, what will we get?<br />While retaining independence, the arts organizations will realize savings, benefit from synergy, and perform in significantly enhanced venues by consolidating in one location. All venues also will be available to non-SAPAC organizations.<br />ACT gains a modern 300-seat main performance space with state-of the art equipment and back-of house, dedicated youth program & rehearsal space, black box theatre, enhanced set-building and costuming spaces, dressing rooms, and offices.<br />The Civic Ballet will have six studios and a Pilates studio integrated in one location with ample parking and safe drop-off and pick-up areas.<br />The Symphony gains a vastly improved performance space, a rehearsal hall, offices, dressing rooms, storage, and other amenities.<br />SACACgains modern, visible offices and versatile space for its Jazz and other Cultural activities.<br />San Angelo gains City Auditorium amenities to accommodate traveling productions.<br />
  20. 20. How will all this operate?<br />Each performing art entity will still exist independently as they do today and will continue to provide programming as independent groups.<br />The four entities will office and operate their programs within the City Hall/City Auditorium facilities and the San Angelo Performing Arts Center building.<br />Through shared box office, joint marketing, and shared occupancy costs, actual combined operating costs will be less than is today.<br />Will appear before City Council on Tuesday, October 18th to begin negotiations for operations of City Auditorium.<br />
