Samueli Theater

600 Town Center Drive Costa Mesa, CA 92626 | Costa Mesa | 714-556-2122

Location Description:

The Orange County Performing Arts Center (OCPAC), long-known for hosting its prestigious rosters of ballet, classical, jazz, world-music, opera and musical-theater acts, is now opening things up with its new Off Center series. The program is dedicated to diversity-broadening the arts spectrum for audiences, and luckily, that includes fan-favorite pop/rock acts in addition to everything from avant-garde Canadian puppet shows to comedy troupes. It's clean (no sticky floors?! Competent door people?!), state-of-the-art and, best of all, absolutely gorgeous.
