Located on the campus of the Board of Education and Professional Development Center, north of the city of Cumming
Opening in late 2021, the FoCAL Center will be a two-story facility to support the fine arts programs of our 39 schools with much-needed performance space and serve as a location for in-county field trips. The building features a main performance hall with an orchestra pit that will seat 1,813 guests (1,188 main with 625 in the balcony). The FoCAL Center will also have a black box theatre with seating for 200 guests, rehearsal rooms that can also be used for event/meeting space, dressing and green rooms, a catering kitchen, and a lobby for gallery space. The versatile center will also provide diverse arts, entertainment, educational, business, and civic opportunities for Forsyth County’s 244,000+ residents and surrounding communities. The construction of this building is funded by the voter-approved 2018 bond referendum.
