Performance Facilities

The George A. Batte, Jr. Fine Arts Center contains two performance spaces:

Hannah Covington McGee Theatre

The main performance hall of the George A. Batte, Jr. Fine Arts Center, Hannah Covington McGee Theatre, is a proscenium stage equipped with current technologies in lighting, sound and rigging systems. With a seating capacity of 554, the theatre sees well over 200 events per year, ranging from lectures and classical music to Broadway style musicals.

Plyler-Griffin Recital Hall

More intimate than McGee Theatre, the Plyler-Griffin Recital Hall is small concert hall that seats 174. Frequently used for recitals, the acoustics of this space are something to be marveled. It is also equipped with an array of multimedia technologies. The recital hall lends itself to being the perfect location for meetings and conferences.

Austin Auditorium

Across the street from the George A. Batte, Jr. Fine Arts Center is Austin Auditorium, a 999 seat hall. Housed within the auditorium is the Rivers Family Organ, an impressive instrument capable of a forceful sound.
