Seton Hill's new Performing Arts Center is 73,000 square feet of everything a performing arts major needs to move from student to professional. The Center houses two main stage performance spaces, the William Granger Ryan Theatre and the Carol Reichgut Concert Hall, and includes new classrooms, rehearsal rooms and technical areas that include the best equipment for learning and performing - from Steinway pianos to the latest in lighting, sound, video and acoustics. The Center is located in downtown Greensburg, putting it squarely in the middle of the city's cultural district yet still only minutes from Seton Hill's main hilltop campus.
