We recently enjoyed the Agatha Christie play "And Then There Were None" at the Upstairs Theater at the FPAC - just a wonderful venue for plays - we will definitely be on the lookout for more productions!

This is a good-sized meeting space for a smaller group for trainings or meetings. There is a lot of flexibility for lighting and A/V, the rest rooms are convenient, and there is lots of parking in the garage across the street.

Occasionally, they have art exhibits in the upstairs gallery. There is no charge. What can I say? I like to see artists work and here is an opportunity to drop in, spend a few minutes and enjoy what is offered!
