About the A-F FAC

 

The Facility

The Adams-Friendship Fine Arts Center is a state-of-the-art, 570-seat venue attached to Adams- Friendship High School. The Center also has its own entrance and spacious lobby with comfortable seating and three TV monitors, which allow guests to see what is happening on stage or other recorded programming and messages.  This area provides a roomy pre or post event space or meeting area and is one of the features that sets this facility apart from similarly-sized performing arts centers. The lobby features the Adams-Friendship Area Education Foundation Donor Wall in recognition to all who have helped build this facility and supported the many Foundation projects.

An art gallery just inside the front entrance to the lobby provides space for all types of student or professional art shows and displays.

A conference room adjacent to the theater and lobby features meeting space for 12 and a large TV monitor which can show what is happening on stage, or connect to a laptop for group presentations or discussions.

The performance space is 46 by 30 and has technologically advanced lighting and sound systems. Three projection screens allow for a variety of visual presentations. The stage includes a rigging system for quick backdrop capabilities. Large overhead doors allow for easy load-in and load-out. Backstage areas provide space for building, painting, and storage.
