Inside Look: Calabasas High Performing Arts Center [VIDEO]

The community is invited to tour the new theater while it's still under construction.

The new 16,000-square-foot performing arts center at is still under construction, but that doesn't mean students or anyone else in the community can't get a peek inside.

On the first Wednesday of every month at 3:30 p.m., people can take a tour of the project to see what's been built and what's still to come.

This week, a group of about 30 people checked out the black box theater and the main stage theater.

The main theater will house 650 seats, while the smaller, more intimate black box venue can seat about 100 theater patrons.

School officials say they are excited for a new venue for student productions that can also be rented out by the community for plays, concerts and lectures.

Construction is expected to be completed by the fall, followed by a grand opening ceremony in January, said Cindy Iser, president of the Las Virgenes Unified School District Board of Education.

The $18 million project is funded by Measure G, a general obligation bond, passed in 2006. The funds can only be used for the new theater and not for discretionary spending within Las Virgenes Unified.

Meet-up location for the tour is in the high school's parking lot, just outside the performing arts center.
