Please tell us about your experience at the Lorton Performance Center!
The University of Tulsa has renamed the Allen Chapman Activity Center to the Allen Chapman Student Union. The change reflects the facility’s overall purpose as TU’s main hub for student services, meetings and dining.
The Roxana Rózsa and Robert Eugene Lorton Performance Center, located at 550 S. Gary Place just west of Harvard between 5th and 8th Streets on the beautiful University of Tulsa campus, is TU’s showcase facility for the musical and performance arts. Completed in 2011 as part of the Embrace the Future fundraising campaign which raised more than $698,000,000, the building serves as home to the School of Music and the Department of Film Studies.
The 77,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility includes the Herbert and Roseline Gussman Concert Hall with seating for 635 on two floors, as well as a full performance stage with ballet floor, scenery fly and trap room, a hydraulic orchestra pit, and the most technologically current theatrical lighting and acoustical control booths.
Upon arriving at the Lorton Performance Center guests enter the 6,000-square-foot Ann and Jack Graves Grand Hall, an elegant and spacious lobby which serves as an art gallery and pre-function space for receptions and similar gatherings.
