This magnificent theater is home to the Symphony of Southeast Texas as well as presentations by the Beaumont Civic Opera, Beaumont Civic Ballet and Beaumont Ballet Theatre. The theatre opened in October of 1982 and underwent restorations in 2007. Baryshnikov has danced on this stage. Roberta Peters, Van Cliburn, the Beach Boys and Dwight Yoakam have performed here. Sophisticated audiences marvel at the elegant appointments and continental seating and performers appreciate the impeccable acoustics.
Concerts, theatrical productions, dance presentations, lectures, and large meetings are equally well served by this venue, which has been declared a historic building and is, therefore, amusement-tax-exempt.
