Community Engagement

Feasts. Fun. Family. From an Alice In Wonderland tea party to fantastically intricate machines fit for an HG Wells fantasy (or an engineering school), Rozsa Performing Arts Center brings the excitement before and after special performances. Masterclasses, meet-and-greets, and pre-show conversations immerse our campus and community in creativity, bringing together artists and craftspeople across disciplines and generations.

More than events – experiences. We're grateful to the local sponsors who make it happen. Let us know if you'd like to help.
