Services & Programs

arts word smallerWe have many plans, both big and small. VVAEC will be both a presenter and a producer.We will work with the community and schools to showcase local talent. It is our intention to bring professional artists to the Victor Valley that one would normally have to go to Los Angeles, Ontario or Las Vegas to see.Since our major capital campaign will be to build a multi-theater performing arts complex, if we are successful, there are endless possibilities for programming and community events. We envision a state-of-the art performing space (with at least 1500 seats) with the latest in acoustic design, lighting and sound systems. Our goal is to create a performing arts center in which the Victor Valley community would be proud and support with donations and by purchasing series tickets. Our plan is to program an annual series of events, as well as making the facility available to rent.If we are not able to build this larger complex, we plan to renovate an existing space to create a beautiful concert hall.

Our programming will be tailored for both immediate community interest and to eventually broaden all our horizons by bringing artists to enrich our enjoyment of the performing arts and that of generations to come.
