Hylton Performing Arts Center staff offered guests a sneak peak at what to expect this season on Wednesday, April 10.

Programming Manager Adrienne Bryant Godwin and Rick Davis, executive director of the Hylton Center and dean of George Mason’s College of Visual and Performing Arts, hosted the evening event which featured a presentation of the upcoming season of performances at the Hylton Center and an exclusive inside peek at the construction of Education and Rehearsal Wing surrounding the event. 

The new wing will complete the original vision for the Hylton Performing Arts Center, according to the staff by finalizing its footprint. The wing will include two rehearsal halls, six practice rooms, two ensemble rehearsal rooms, and two additional lobby spaces. 

Construction is underway. Upon arrival at the Hylton Center, you will see a large, fenced area in front of the building. Access the parking lot to the Hylton Center is slightly modified but accessible parking and the drop-off circle in front of the building are available.

Scaffolding and other equipment sit in the Didlake Grand Foyer so select areas of the lobby are temporarily inaccessible. However, the shows must go on and they will. The Hylton Center has an incredible slate of shows for this season. The new wing is scheduled to open in this fall.
