The Durham Performing Arts Center will open in just under a year with a full slate of Broadway shows. On the schedule for spring 2009 are Rent, Fiddler on the Roof, Legally Blonde, The Color Purple and Wicked.

The Nederlander Producing Company and Professional Facilities Management announced the first run of shows for the new center Thursday at the meeting of the Durham Chamber of Commerce.

The center is a planned multi-use performance space that will seat up to 2,800.
