Satiate your senses in the sanctuary of The Purple Crayon Center for Learning and Social Innovation—a unique space designed to transform performance into experience.
Recently, this historic church building underwent a huge renovation to restore its glory. The spacious, beautiful, and welcoming venue is a flexible event space that fits 150 fully seated, 290 fully standing, or any combination of the two. The performance space is acoustically engineered with superb sight lines, crystal clear sound, and top of the line sound and lighting equipment.
Enjoy the show up close and personal from your seat, lounge on one of the gorgeous armchairs or couches, or even sit with your partner on the centuries-old wooden swing. Or if the mood strikes, kick up your heels on our hard wood dance floor.
The stage is a spacious 23’x17’ raised platform with all hard wood floors.
Seating for all shows is general admission unless otherwise noted, and includes some standing room.
Beer, wine, sodas and snacks are standard for all shows. Catered hot food will be served in some events as advertised
