Long Center: Countdown to opening and beyond
Summer at the Long Center meant lots of construction activity and two hefty contributions from the corporate community
With the Long Center's grand opening now a mere seven months away – circle March 28-30 in red on your calendar if you haven't already – the center is currently accepting rental applications for its premiere season, April 2008 to August 2009. This goes for not only performances but also meetings and other nonperformance functions. You can take your pick of the 2,400-seat Dell Foundation Hall, the flexible "black box" Rollins Studio Theatre, the 30,000-square-foot outdoor City Terrace facing Downtown, the Kodosky Donor Lounge, and the AT&T Education Rooms. Programming director Tammie Ward says that you can find venue floor plans and rental guidelines under "facility rental" on the Long Center website. For more information, visit www.thelongcenter.org.
