The Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center is located at College of the Canyons, a California community college in the City of Santa Clarita in northern Los Angeles County. The $18.3-million facility opened in 2004 and houses two performance venues: the Main Stage, and the experimental Black Box Theater. Funded by the State of California ($15.9 million) and Santa Clarita ($2.4 million), the 47,000-square-foot facility provides instructional, community and professional entertainment and programs.
The main performance venue features a spectacular 7,500-square-foot proscenium stage, state-of-the-art sound system, orchestra pit, and 886 seats on Orchestra and Balcony levels. Amenities include a green room, scene shops, costume and property storage, makeup/dressing room, lockers, showers, box office and snack bar.
This flexible-seating venue is designed for new or experimental productions. Both the Black Box and Main Stage can accommodate concurrent productions. Due to the nature of this venue, the exact number of seats available is often not known until close to opening night. Seating is general admission.
The center was designed to accommodate patrons with accessibility requirements. Accessible
seating is available in rows E and P of the Orchestra section. Ushers are available
to assist patrons with accessibility requirements to the elevator for access to row
E. Transfer seats may also be available, and ushers can store wheelchairs during performances.
We recommend that patrons using wheelchairs notify the box office in advance and be
accompanied by a companion to provide assistance. Seating for up to three companions
is available next to wheelchair or transfer-accessible seats. Depending on availability,
seats for additional guests will be located as close as possible to the accessible
seat. Patrons requiring additional disability-related accommodations, including sign-language
interpreters, should contact the box office at (661) 362-5304 no later than two weeks
prior to the performance date. The Black Box Theater also is designed to accommodate
patrons with accessibility requirements.
Tickets for those with accessible needs may be purchased in a variety of ways, subject to availability:
- Call the box office at (661) 362-5304 during business hours, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Friday.

- Order online. Be sure to select the appropriate price discount for either Wheelchair

The center is equipped with an infrared assistive listening system, and headsets may be used at any seat. Assistive listening devices may be requested from any usher or the house manager. A photo ID or credit card is required to check out an ALD for a performance.
Note: Wheelchair (remain in wheelchair) and Transfer (wheelchair patron transfers to theater
seat) seating is reserved for those with accessibility needs and up to three companions
per wheelchair and transfer-accessible patron.
