This 43,000-square-foot building provides Alma students with one of the finest performing facilities in the region. It supports the College’s programs in dance, music and theatre.
The 500-seat Presbyterian Hall is the perfect home for choir, orchestra, band and dance groups. The adjoining 200-seat semi-thrust theatre and separate dance studio host various productions by performing arts faculty and students and provides another venue for performance and instruction. Various support rooms include dressing rooms, green room, dance studio, costume shop and scene shop.
The Remick Heritage Center also is used for speakers, political debates, student recitals, school workshops, alumni and prospective student activities, community meetings and Highland Festival events.
The facility opened in October 1993 as the Heritage Center. In April 2003, the Heritage Center was renamed the Oscar E. Remick Heritage Center for the Performing Arts in honor of Dr. Oscar E. Remick, who serve as the 10th president of Alma College.
