The Eli & Edythe Broad Stage

The Broad Stage is an award winning state-of-the-art 499 seat performing arts theater that is designed for a variety of world-class performances including music, opera, dance and drama.

Although a community college facility, the Broad Stage is designed to a much higher level of sophistication than most college theaters.

The use of rich woods and stone are found throughout the building. There is a spectacular curtain wall glass frontage. It features a large high-ceiling auditorium for outstanding acoustics and a large stage that can handle any type of production.

Theater Arts Renovation

The original 1952 college theater was demolished and replaced by a state-of-the-art teaching theater with 279 seats. The new project has full theatrical lighting and sound facilities, a larger stage with space above to fly scenery out of audience view, larger dressing rooms with showers and full costume shop. Scenery can now be built in the scene shop and moved to the stage.  Before, all large scenery pieces were built on stage, limiting stage use for classes and rehearsals. The new theater greatly increases the variety of productions that can be offered.

Music Complex

The former Music Building was completed as part of the original campus in 1952. Since 1985, the SMC Music Department has added a symphony orchestra, concert band, and an opera workshop to its performance group offerings as well as increasing the number of applied music classes to include string, woodwind, brass and percussion classes as well as the piano, voice, recorder and guitar classes it has traditionally offered. The new facility has 27 practice rooms instead of 14 in the former building.

Media & Technology-Driven Programs Complex (Academy Campus)

The college operates a variety of programs in the digital arts, media, communication, and broadcasting fields. These programs currently reside in 1950s era buildings that cannot support the modern infrastructure necessary for digital and online programs. A new Media and Technology complex is proposed to house these digital technology-intensive programs. The facilities will have the data, communications, electrical, and ventilation systems necessary to support these programs in the future.

Performing Arts Campus East Wing Renovation

The Performing Arts Campus was formerly the Madison Elementary School. The District has done several renovations to the campus and has recently added the Broad Stage and Second Space as part of a Performing Arts Center. The campus is also home to the Music Department. Constructed in the 1930’s the original buildings East Wing have some seismic deficiencies that need to be remedied. The one-story East Wing currently houses a multipurpose room and some offices.
