A public open house will be held Sunday to celebrate the opening of the new Performing Arts Center.

According to a Feb. 12 University Star article, the grand opening performance titled “Public Spectacular” will take place in the Patti Strickel-Harrison Theatre in the center, which holds 312 patrons. Students from the College of Fine Arts and Communication will perform in the show.

The first performance will be from 2-2:45 p.m., and the second takes place from 4-4:45 p.m. There will be free, guided tours from 4:45-5:15 p.m.

A limited number of free tickets will be available to students, faculty, staff and the community for the two performances Sunday. No tickets are required for the guided tours.

Patrons can reserve tickets online at txstatepresents.com and call Texas State Presents at 512-245-6500 with any questions.

According to a May 13, 2011 press release from the university, ground was broken on the center June 3, 2011. The center’s opening marks the end of the university’s seven-year Pride in Action campaign.
