L.E. & Thelma E. Stephens Performing Arts Center
Music, dance, theatre, lectures and more bring the communities of Idaho State University and southeastern Idaho together in one spectacular locale: the $34 million L.E. and Thelma E. Stephens Performing Arts Center.
Built primarily with the generous support of hundreds of private donors, the 123,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art complex debuted in October 2004. It crowns a Pocatello hilltop that offers vistas as inspiring as the artists who perform here. The facility was ranked fourth in the nation as one of the top 25 most amazing performing art centers.
It features a 1,200-seat grand concert hall with rehearsal space, a 450-seat thrust stage theatre, a 200-seat black box theatre, a rotunda, and theatre department offices, box office, practice rooms and shops. We invite you to join ISU in celebrating the performing arts in Idaho.
