The Durham Performing Arts Center (DPAC) is a spectacular architectural and cultural landmark in Durham. The DPAC serves as a regional beacon for entertainment, drawing audiences from across the midsection of North Carolina.
The DPAC is a 2,800 seat multi-use performance theater that houses nationally renown Nederlander productions, including Broadway shows, the American Dance Festival (ADF) each summer, and various other mid-size performances throughout the year.
A year-round schedule of national entertainment acts supplemented with local entertainment events has added marketing and entertainment cache to the thriving Durham arts scene.
The DPAC opened in December 2008 and has been a runaway success.
