“Best place to perform and experience talent”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

I am a graduate student from UMD's Dance program (TDPS). To put it short and sweet, this venue is where all of my performances from college were held. It is a gorgeous theatre/building, and professional high-paying performances are here. There is a DIVERSE line up of performances in different areas of the arts throughout the year. Dance collaborations with music and theatre- we have it all. Check out the courses offered here and performances daily and on weekends..

“Great location on the University of Maryland College Park Campus”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

This performing arts center is a great showcase for students, faculty and visiting artists. I have seen, as well as participated as a piper, many interesting live performances. Admission prices are normally relatively small.

“Midsummer Night's Dream”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

Generally, great music, theater, and dance performances at inexpensive prices. A Midsummer Night's Dream was a collaboration between the University of Maryland Theater Department and the Beijing Chinese Opera school. Much of the play was done in the style of Chinese Opera, with interesting staging and costumes.

“Great facility”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

Performing arts center is wonderful. Great that is on a college campus. I've seen several shows at Smith and they have all been excellent. Of course, my granddaughter is a theater major so my view may be influenced by that fact. Even so, that facility is great.

“Under-appreciated local resource!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

When we think of performing arts in the DC area, it is so easy to think (myopically) about the Kennedy Center. The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center in College Park, on the campus of the University of Maryland, is a venue for wonderful performances of all types at prices that won't break your budget!
