Segerstrom Center for the Arts is unique as both an acclaimed arts institution and as a multi-disciplinary cultural campus. To put it bluntly, it’s the classiest venue in the whole damn county. Previously called the Orange County Performing Arts Center, Segerstrom Center traces its roots back to the late 1960s, when a dedicated group of community leaders decided Orange County should have its own world-class performing-arts venue that brings in national ballet and theater companies. In addition to the 3,000-seat Segerstrom Hall and intimate 250-seat Founders Hall, which opened in 1986, and the 1,704-seat Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall (opened in 2006) also houses the 500-seat Samueli Theater, the Lawrence and Kristina Dodge Education Center’s studio performance space and Boeing Education Lab. Home to newer institutions like the Off Center Festival that manage to bring in the coveted 25 and under crowd, the center has come a long way toward making this upscale culture palace a place for everyone to enjoy.
