Nestled in the foothills of the Sacaton Mountains, Signal Peak is located approximately halfway between Phoenix and Tucson in western Pinal County. This campus serves the communities of Arizona City, Casa Grande, Coolidge, Eloy, Florence, Maricopa, and Stanfield.
In 1974, the new FINE ARTS CENTER was named the Don P. Pence Center for Visual and Performing Arts. On Sunday, October 26, 1975, a dedication ceremony was held for the Don P. Pence Center and the following day the stage production "Oklahoma" premiered. The musical was a part of a long series of programs presented to dedicate the Fine Arts Center.
Throughout our history, we have presented a variety of performances ranging from South Pacific, Woody Herman, Sons of the Pioneers, Peking Acrobats, Duttons, J.D.Crowe and The New South. Our 735-seat theatre is dedicated to bringing diverse performances of artistic quality at an affordable cost.
