Creative spaces for performing arts
Hopkins Event Services has several options available to host performing arts events—from a large production to a small, intimate performance. The spaces available at the Eisenhower Community Center and Hopkins High School offer comfortable seating, concession space, ample parking, and handicap accessible facilities.
Highlights of our auditorium and theater spaces:
- An 875-seat auditorium, complete with a proscenium stage with full fly loft, orchestra pit, and state-of-the-art light and sound systems.
- Two theaters—an older "Little Theater" with 280 seats and a thrust stage and a 465-seat theater with a proscenium stage. Both stages are equipped with updated light and sound systems.
- Quick Bites and Wetlands Cafe for snacks and beverages before or after the performance.
- Both are coffee shops that feature hot coffee, fresh pastries, and other healthy snacks.
The Hopkins Event Services' performing arts spaces are clean, comfortable, and easily accessible. You can choose small, medium, or large seating capacity, and low or high tech in the area of sound and lighting. Whether your event is a speaker, dance recital, theater production, or choir concert, let us help plan a high-quality event for you.
Need reception space?
If you would like to start or end your performance with a reception or dinner, Hopkins Event Services has space for that, too. The Hopkins High School's dining room or Fireside Room are perfect for reception gatherings and formal dinners. And Eisenhower Community Center's Oakwood Room can accommodate all of your guests. The Royal Rock Catering provides delicious and professionally catered food by request.
