The Hylton Performing Arts Center opened in May of 2010, and is the region’s first state-of-the-art performing arts center. The partnership with Prince William County, the city of Manassas, and George Mason University has created a project that will educate, entertain and enrich the lives of our citizens. The center provides performance space for local community arts groups, as well as national and international tours which will include everything from Beethoven to Bluegrass (and everything in between). Located on the Science and Technology (formerly Prince William) campus in Manassas, Va., the center has two performance spaces--the 1,166-seat Merchant Hall and the 300-flexible seat Gregory Family Theatre. In addition, the 9,000 square-foot Didlake Grand Foyer provides event space in western Prince William County for receptions up to 600 people and seated dinners for nearly 300.
