Take a tourThe Tempe Center for the Arts (TCA), is one of the finest venues in Arizona – a jewel in the crown of a city known for its support of the arts. Plenty of parking is available to serve the center, which is just a .83 mile walk from the Mill Avenue/Third Street Metro Light Rail stop. Bus Route 48 serves the TCA from the downtown Transit Center, as well as the Light Rail stop.

The TCA is located on the southwest end of Tempe Town Lake and resides in a beautifully appointed 17-acre lakeside art park developed by Design Workshop, a Tempe landscape architecture firm.

The strikingly magnificent TCA, Designed by Tempe-based Architekton and award-winning Barton Myers Associates of Los Angeles, houses a state-of-the-art, 600-seat proscenium theater, a 200-seat studio theater and a 3,500 square-foot gallery. The finely appointed Lakeside overlooks Town Lake, with views of the Papago and Camelback mountains, and is available for meetings, banquets and special events.

Local favorites including Childsplay, the Tempe Symphony Orchestra, the Tempe Community Chorus, A. Ludwig Dance, Desert Dance, the Arizona Wind Symphony, CONDER/dance and the Tempe Symphonic Wind Ensemble perform on the center’s stages.
