See the Conant Performing Arts Center in our virtual tour!

The Miriam H. and John A. Conant Performing Arts Center, completed in 1997, is a four-story state-of-the-art theatrical and performance facility providing a permanent home to Oglethorpe University's Theatre Department and the Georgia Shakespeare Festival. It houses a main stage theatre with seating for 511, an expansive lobby, a snack bar, a gift shop, rehearsal and dressing rooms, a covered veranda for receptions, and administrative offices.

The Conant Center is the product of a joint venture by Oglethorpe University and the Georgia Shakespeare Festival to bring more artistic and educational opportunities to the Oglethorpe student body and the Atlanta community. In support of this directive, the Conant Center has hosted such guests as the Berlin Chamber Orchestra, the Atlanta Chamber Players, musical artists Sukay, international pianist Enrique Graf, and Atlanta's own Garden House Dance. Other recent Conant Center events include the Eco-Symposium with keynote speaker Ted Turner, a discussion with NPR personality David Broncaccio, An International Summit on Europe featuring former U.S. Secretaries of State Alexander Haig and Lawrence Eagleburger, and a Town Hall Meeting with former President Jimmy Carter. Previous seasons have also seen mezzo-soprano Brenda Boozer, the conference Women in the Civil Rights Movement, the Michael O'Neal Chamber Singers, and acclaimed performance artist Kate Bornstein, among others.
