Bicknell Family Center for the Arts

WHAT'S HAPPENING

SO MANY POSSIBILITIES

Art. Music. Theatre. Dance. We have it all.

 

Located in the heart of Pittsburg State University's campus, the Bicknell Family Center for the Arts is the region's premier destination for the fine and performing arts.   

Designed and constructed by the world's most renowned theater architects, our facility features the 1,000-seat Linda & Lee Scott Performance Hall, the 280-seat Dotty and Bill Miller Theater, the 3,000 square-foot Gallery, and the 2900 square-foot Rehearsal Hall. 

Here, students, faculty, staff, and the community have transformational experiences behind the scenes and on stage in music, theatre, and art — from locally-produced concerts, plays, and exhibits, to national touring Broadway shows. 

We annually play host to numerous public speakers of note as part of the H. Lee Scott Lecture Series and Women in Government Lecture Series. The list includes former President Bill Clinton, former First Lady Laura Bush, and many more. 

The 1,600 square-foot Dean Family VIP Room and the Paul Bergant Family Lobby provide an elegant backdrop for conferences, receptions, meetings, and other special events.   

YOUR experiences matter, so come make memories with us at the Bicknell Family Center for the Arts!
