Check out the expanded Wortham Center for the Performing Arts in Asheville, which opened earlier this fall. After months of renovations, it has transformed the single-stage entity known as the Diana Wortham Theatre into a three-venue performing arts complex now known as the Wortham Center for the Performing Arts.
The new performing arts center comprises three venues: the existing 500-seat Diana Wortham Theatre, with an improved sound system, hearing assistance technology and energy-efficient LED lighting; the new Tina McGuire Theatre, a multiuse black box theatre featuring comfortable seating with convertible configuration options for 80 to 100 people; and the new Henry LaBrun Studio, a multiuse space that can be used as a classroom, for workshops, or as a performance venue seating 60 to 80 people.
By adding two new venues in addition to the Diana Wortham Theatre stage, the Wortham Center for the Performing Arts will serve a broader community, allowing increased access to programming, development of new community partnerships, added educational offerings and space rental services to our community.
