The Townsend Center for the Performing Arts contains a 459-seat Main Stage theatre, with a proscenium stage and orchestra pit, and a Black Box theatre which seats up to 170 for experimental theatre, chamber music, receptions, and other small-scale events. The facility includes offices, a lobby with grand piano and digital monitors, a Box Office, two dressing rooms, a rehearsal room, a green room, a scene shop, a loading dock, and outdoor patio space.

Performance instruments include two Bosendorfer Imperial Grand Pianos, a Kawai Grand Piano, and a Yamaha U3 upright piano. Lighting, sound, staging, rigging, and soft goods equipment are extensive, well-maintained, and up-to-date. The Orchestra Lift is fully functional, featuring an industrial-grade application from Serapid Technologies. The TCPA is located on the Carrollton campus of the University of West Georgia. 

The TCPA was officially opened in April of 1989 as the Performing Arts Center, and is wholly owned by the University System of Georgia.  Managed by the University of West Georgia, the TCPA has a full-time professional staff and a wonderful team of amazing student workers to bring your event to life.

In addition to facility rental and event production services, the Townsend Center also provides professionally managed Ticketing Services, including consulting for pricing and house scaling, sophisticated ticketing software, advanced admissions technology, customer service, order fulfillment, and patron communications. Payment processing includes cash, check, and major credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.

Step 2) Email or Call our Business Manager, providing as many details about your event as possible. Please include more than one date option for your event, especially during the academic semesters.

Step 3) Review the text below and the PDF documents:

Our team will contact you to meet with the Technical Staff. This pre-production meeting is to discuss your needs and estimate expenses for the event. During this meeting, the TCPA staff will determine access times, staging setup, technical requirements, front-of-house needs, box office needs, and safety/security needs. This allows the Townsend Center staff to plan and staff your event, have all equipment ready upon your arrival, and develop the most accurate estimate of the cost of your event. This meeting should occur no later than two months before the event.
