The Jay and Susie Gogue Performing Arts Center houses a 1,200 seat performance hall and an outdoor performance area with lawn seating and a 350 seat recital hall, including a catering kitchen, concessions, dressing rooms, scenery shops, a two story multipurpose lobby, and a central energy plant. The center houses nationally touring Broadway productions, and opera, dance, orchestra and symphony performances, as well as student and faculty music and theater performances. The lighting design for the auditorium complements the wood and accentuates the wood slats. A color temperature of 3000K was used to help bring out the warmth of the wood.
