The mission of the Germantown Performing Arts Center (GPAC) is to serve the community by presenting the highest quality artistic endeavors to engage, enrich, and transform. GPAC is located in the heart of Shelby County, serves the greater metro Memphis area of over a million people and is accessible to all members of the community. The GPAC theater is an acoustically perfect, 824 seat venue featuring a sprung pine stage, an intimate black box theatre, an elegant green room, eight spacious dressing rooms and an opulent, grand lobby for entertaining and assembling. Ray Charles set the bar high when he opened GPAC in 1994, immediately defining this space as a place where excellence is the norm and where the world would come to perform. Season after season, GPAC has applauded an array of artists with extraordinary talents and showcased the broadest range of performances and art forms. Currently in our 19th season, GPAC presents world renowned performing artists in a variety of genres, year round educational activities for all ages including the GPAC Youth Symphony Orchestra, rotating visual art exhibits and many community events welcoming over 70,000 visitors annually. The organization benefits from the infrastructure of a professional organization that possesses a clear direction, strong financial health, professional seasoned staff and a dedicated board of directors.
