For Immediate Release……Arts Centre Moving
The Complex Performing Arts Centre is moving to Main Street, Putnam CT.
Due to unresolved safety issues with our current rental building at 95 Front St, we have been forced to make the decision to relocate our space for the safety of our students and families. The Complex Performing Arts Centre will move to a beautiful space at 134 Main Street in Putnam, CT. The space is in the heart of our town, centrally located on Main Street above the Stomping Ground and String Tinkers and across the street from The Courthouse Bar and Grille. The space provides four large studios for education in dance, theatre, creative arts and music. We are excited to have our students working and training in the middle of downtown. We will proudly continue our education program as we have for the past 9 years and will offer even more in our new location.
Our new space will not house a theatre, we will outsource our student productions to a larger theatre space than we currently have. We will also outsource our Children’s Theatre Performances (Theatre for Kids…by Kids) to local theatres. We are excited to present work in other locations, such as the parks, Downtown Putnam and any other fun space we stumble upon. Due to the unexpected suddenness of our move, we must cancel the remainder of our 2014 adult performance season. We will still present all student shows and all of the Theatre For Kids…By Kids performances in various local locations, to be announced on a later date.
Our education centre continues to grow and we will be focusing the energies of The Complex on the education of our students, bringing them even more opportunities. In our new space we will present classes, artist talks, works-in-progress showings, performing/creative art workshops, birthday parties/social parties, and community projects. The only elimination to our offerings will be large shows performed in-house. We will always have creative projects in the works!!!
While we have come to know our current space as “home,” we are excited and look forward to joining our fellow downtown artists and businesses on Main Street. Our new location will bring new concepts, new classes, new beginnings and new community opportunities. The Complex proudly offers intensive and recreational programs of study in Dance, Creative Arts, Music and Theatre. The Complex is home to 5 student companies: The NE CT Youth Ballet Company, The Breakin’ Through Dance Company, The Putnam Children’s Choir, The Choir Escape and Theatre For Kids…By Kids. Classes at The Complex are available for infants to adults.
Our official move-in date is June 1, 2014 . No business or happenings of The Complex Performing Arts Centre will take place at 95 Front Street, Putnam, CT 06260 after June 1st. At that time all classes and business will be held at our new location of 134 Main Street, Putnam, CT. Classes will continue as scheduled after June 1, 2014 in our new location.
Please join us on June 6th for a GRAND OPENING CELEBRATION in conjunction with Putnam’s First Fridays event themed, “Dance” in our new location! Also, experience our new space first hand in our Summer Performing and Creative Arts three week school July 14th-August 1st. Visit the website for details, www.thepcac.org. And thank you, for your continued support of the arts from all of us at The Complex Performing Arts Centre.
