About the Vicksburg Performing Arts Center
Located at 501 East Highway Street, the Vicksburg Performing Arts Center opened its doors in 1994 to support arts-in-education programs, offering many programs designed to inspire young people through the arts, enhancing their studies and enriching their lives well into the future.
The Performing Arts Center soon became one of Southwest Michigan’s premier entertainment venues and the artistic home to South Kalamazoo County’s performing arts organizations: Vicksburg Rotary Club, The Vicksburg Community Association and the South County Players.
The Vicksburg Performing Art Center features a large modern stage with handicap access, orchestra pit, grand piano, make-up room, green room, wardrobe and dressing rooms and a convenient cargo loading area. Equipped with state-of-the-art lighting, sound, rigging, and electrical supply systems, the venue has been host to a wide array of entertainers from television and film stars John Astin, Dick Van Patten and Frank Gorshin to the world-renown Glenn Miller Orchestra. The Gilmore Keyboard Festival and WMU Children’s Dance Theater routinely use our stage.
In addition to performance space, the Performing Arts Center Staff and volunteers offer support in technical theater to lessees, plus advice to community organizations interested in producing event such as concerts, theater performances, workshop services, recitals, corporate meeting and speakers.
