Julie Rogers Theatre
This magnificent facility is home to the Symphony of Southeast Texas as well as presentations by the Beaumont Civic Opera, the Beaumont Civic Ballet and the Beaumont Ballet Theatre. Barishniknov has danced on this stage, Roberta Peters and Van Cliburn have both performed here. Sophisticated audiences appreciate the elegant appointments and the continental seating.
Concerts, theatrical productions, dance presentations, lectures, and large meetings are equally well served by this theatre, which has been declared an historic building and is, therefore, amusement-tax-exempt.
Continental seating affords every member of the audience an excellent view of the stage with no space-wasting center aisle. The downstairs seating capacity is 1,251 with seating for an additional 412 persons upstairs.
Our fully rigged stage boasts a magnificent fifty foot proscenium, a hydraulic orchestra pit, and a recently installed complete state-of-the-art sound and lighting system. Also available for your use, is a 9′ Baldwin grand piano. Performers appreciate the ample, well appointed chorus and private dressing rooms.
Sparkling chandeliers light the handsome lobby area which is graced by twin grand staircases and two comfortable cocktail service and lounging areas. The spacious foyer provides an elegant entry and conveniently located box office facilities for efficient ticketing and admission.
The same excellent quality of management and technical support which operates in the Civic Center Complex is in full service at the Julie Rogers Theatre for the Performing Arts.
The Julie Rogers Theatre is located adjacent to the Beaumont Civic Center which allows for additional meeting space and breakout rooms for conventions and large corporate seminars.
