Chandler Center for the Arts announces grand re-opening season

After a yearlong renovation, Chandler Center for the Arts (250 N. Arizona Ave., Chandler) is once again ready to host great performances this coming season.

At $6.7 million, the largest remodeling effort ever undertaken by the Center, completely revamped everything from the rigging system above, to the carpet beneath, and all the way down to the expanded offices and dressing rooms. The newly designed exterior features a new plaza and a welcoming, open design that shows the Center to all who pass by.

The Center's mission has always been to provide world-class programming for the area. With the state of the art equipment in place, the Center will be able to meet the requirements of leading Broadway performances.
