Built in 2014 and fully funded by gifts from more than 400 families as part of the $7.4 million Building Bright Futures Campaign, the 11,486 square-foot Cannon Performing Arts Center (CPAC) was designed as both a performance space and a gathering spot for the entire Cannon community. It can accommodate not only shows but also speakers, parent town halls, student meetings, and potentially many other future community events. It features a floor that is flat instead of sloped so that it can host dances, dinners, and exhibits.Seating
- Cannon Performing Arts Center can accommodate 450 seats. These seats are moveable and can therefore be reconfigured to suit the needs of each individual event.
- The theater itself was designed to position the audience as close as possible to the Leck Family Performing Arts stage, creating an intimate setting for music, drama, or speaking events.
