Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts
Suffolk’s premier visual and performing arts venue.
As Suffolk’s premier visual and performing arts venue for Suffolk, the Suffolk Center boasts a year-round schedule featuring musical performances, theatrical productions, ballet, art exhibits, lectures and galas.
The classic Greek-Revival structure was built in 1922 and served as Suffolk High School until 1990. Situated in the heart of downtown, the impressive structure houses a 500-seat theater, which is the stage for concerts, ballets, musicals, dramatic works, symphony performances, films, children’s plays, puppet shows and so much more.
The 62,880-square-foot facility also offers studios for dance, painting, sculpting, weaving classes and several other arts-related classes. Within the massive three-story Center, there is a ballroom, banquet hall, and classroom museum. The first floor of the structure houses Jester’s, a gallery gift shop showcasing local and regional artists, and The Plaid Turnip, an onsite restaurant offering a unique mixture of great food, good friends, and fantastic works by local artists.
