Benjamin & Marian Schuster Performing Arts Center

The magnificent Schuster Center boasts spaces that will host 20 to 2,000 guests. The Mead Theatre is the state-of-the-art venue for performances, large company meetings and presentations. With travertine floors and graceful palm trees, the Kettering Wintergarden of the Schuster Center provides a spectacular backdrop for galas, receptions, parties, weddings, and corporate events. While the lobbies have hosted many cocktail receptions as well as silent auctions, they also have provided ample space for trade shows. With three flexible meeting rooms and the Donor Lounges as well as Mathile Theatre, the spaces at the Schuster Center can be used in a variety of ways for business meetings, seminars and receptions.
