Welcome to Beck Center

Beck Center for the Arts is more than a non-profit organization that combines professional theater with arts education. We create art experiences. We are committed to creating art experiences as individual as the people we serve with eclectic performances to suit many tastes, education opportunities for all ages and abilities, community outreach programs, and free art exhibitions. We believe that the arts can be transformative and strengthen our community.


We invite you to take a look at our award-winning classes, programs, and lessons in dance, music, theater, visual arts, early childhood, outreach, and Creative Arts Therapies  - and hope you are inspired to discover your inner-artist. Beck Center has also been named "Best of the West" in Dance/Theater Instruction since 2008.

Exceptional theater ... delightful escape!  Individual tickets, Flex Passes, and Youth Theater tickets are on sale now.
