The Parker Arts, Culture and Events (PACE) Center invites the public to a free open house on Oct. 22 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Attendees will enjoy facility tours and demonstrations by local arts groups, as well as hands-on arts activities and programs.
The 50,000 sq. ft. PACE Center includes four classrooms, a media lab, dance studio, event room, art gallery, amphitheater, lobby, mainstage theater, dressing rooms, green room and outdoor patios. PACE provides a wide variety of local, regional, national and international cultural, arts, scientific and educational programming to the region and serves as a rental venue for community, business and social events.
The day’s festivities include demonstrations by musicians, artists, dancers and scientists. Apex Contemporary Dance Theatre, along with the Douglas County Libraries, will announce the winning story of their Children’s Writing Contest in which the story will be made into a performance, showing Nov. 19 and 20 at PACE. Attendees will also have a chance to play on the new outdoor Harmony Park musical classroom, experience a concert and learn about these unique instruments from the creators.
The box office will be open for those interested in purchasing tickets for any of the 73 performances on the PACE Center’s Mainstage. Tickets start as low as $5 and are also available online at www.PACEcenteronline.org.
“The Town Council is so pleased to see this important addition to our community come to fruition,” said Mayor David Casiano. “PACE will provide residents of the south-metro region easy access to quality cultural programming that is also affordable for families.”
