In 2009, the City constructed the Menlo-Atherton Performing Arts Center (M-A PAC) in conjunction with Menlo-Atherton High School. This facility is available to the City of Menlo Park 55 days out of the year including six weeks during the summer. The M-A PAC seats 492 and contains professional-quality sound and lighting, an orchestra pit accommodating up to 80 musicians, and a full lobby and box office. Organizations may also rent the 150-seat multi-purpose space or other locations around the school during certain days. The venue has mainly been used for musical performances. It has also hosted touring dance companies, author lectures, documentaries, and live chamber music. The venue is available for a wide variety of performances including dance, theater, musicals, film screenings, and many other art forms.
