The Maurice K. Townsend Center for the Performing Arts supports the
of Music and Theatre
throughout their various performance and educational endeavors,
supports the academic
mission of the University of West Georgia as a whole, and
advocates the Arts and
Arts Education to the university and surrounding communities.
Both the university and
the West Georgia region benefit from the cultural enrichment
opportunities provided by the variety of events presented at the
The Townsend Center is
equipped with two performance venues, a 459-seat theatre
with proscenium stage
and orchestra pit, and the “black box” Richard L. Dangle Theatre
which can be staged and
set up in a variety of ways, seating up to 170 for experimental
theatre, chamber music,
receptions, and other small-scale events.
The Townsend Center for
the Performing Arts is very fortunate to have two Bösendorfer
Imperial Grand Pianos.
Both pianos were purchased when the Townsend Center for the
Performing Arts was
opened in 1988. A special donation from the Cole family made
it possible for the
University to purchase the two instruments, which are used by
the Music Department and
visiting artists for university and community events.Box Office Info
