When the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts opens its doors in the Fall of 2014, creativity will be unleashed throughout our entire community and usher in a new era for Central Florida. Downtown Orlando will be transformed into a vibrant, urban gathering place for diverse artistry where creativity and education converge to inspire local artists, students and audiences. It will serve as a magnet that attracts locals and visitors alike to experience the energy of a world-class performance in an international-caliber facility within a revitalized city-center.
The Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts is 330,000 square-feet of pure inspiration. Situated on two city blocks covering almost nine acres, the Downtown home will feature two performance theaters (Walt Disney Theater with 2,700+ seats and Acoustical Theater with 1,700+ seats), the Jim & Alexis Pugh Theater (community theater with 300+ seats), outdoor public plaza and performance space, rehearsal rooms, administrative offices, educational programming space and a community facility. The development is bordered to the west by Orange Avenue, to the east by Rosalind Avenue, to the north by South Street and the south by Anderson Street. The two blocks are bisected by Magnolia Avenue between South Street and Anderson Street, which will serve as the main corridor for pedestrian access, vehicle drop-off and valet.
