Your New Home for World-Class Entertainment

North Carolina has a new live entertainment theater like no other. Specifically designed to present the biggest shows on tour, The Durham Performing Arts Center (DPAC) puts you close to the stage, with no seat further than 135 feet.

Featuring world-class performers, spacious seating, state-of-the-art sound and lighting, and convenient parking, DPAC allows you to experience live performances in an entirely new way.

From Broadway musicals to concerts, family shows to comedy, at DPAC you’re up close. Centrally located in the American Tobacco District just minutes off I-40, I-540 and I-85, and adjacent to the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
