• The Performing Arts Center (PAC) at Alexandria Area High School seats 1,013 people. The center is named in recognition of a generous donation from Tastefully Simple to the Capital Campaign that secured private pledges from individuals, businesses and other entities to help reduce the cost of a new high school for district taxpayers.

    This magnificent facility is a long awaited dream for our community. The facility was designed and built with state-of-the-art equipment, acoustics, handicapped-accessible seating, and audience comfort in mind.
    The center will comfortably accommodate the needs of choir, instrumental and theater performances for the school, provide a large gathering space for students and staff, and provide the community with a location to hold various performing arts and other events for all ages.
    We are grateful for such an enriching facility and encourage community groups, businesses and organizations to consider this magnificent facility as host to performances throughout the year.
