The Auburn Performing Arts Center originally opened its doors in April 1981. It has since gained regional and national acclaim as a top notch, professionally managed performance venue, catering to school, community, and professional groups alike. The APAC is owned and subsidized by the Auburn School District No. 408 and is located on the campus of the beautiful new Auburn Senior High School. This exquisite, state-of-the-art, 950 seat theatre re-opened in October 2015 after an extensive remodel. It is specifically home to the Auburn Arts Commission's BRAVO! Series, the fully professional Auburn Symphony Orchestra, Pacific Ballroom Dance Company, the Miss Auburn Scholarship Pageant, Evergreen City Ballet's 'Nutcracker', and the annual Auburn Rotary Scholarship Show. The Center has been recognized as one of the top acoustical halls for music performance in the nation.
