Performance Hall

Built in 1890 as the sanctuary to the former Central Presbyterian Church, the Performance Hall at Hochstein was fully renovated in 1999 to include state-of-the-art acoustics, theatre seating, stage and house lighting, and Crest Audio System.

Restroom facilities are located both on the main floor and lower level.
