Spencer Theater

“Life is like theater.”

-William Shakespeare

Spencer Theater

Perhaps the most distinguished landmark in the entire region, the Spencer Theater is a world-class performance hall presenting professional performances of ballet, drama, Broadway, modern dance, comedy and all genres of music throughout the year. Designed by the famed architect Antoine Predock, the Spencer’s unique architecture, outstanding acoustics, intimate seating, and excellent artistry are its celebrated features. The elegant, award-winning hall, which first raised its curtains in 1997, seats 514, with no seats farther than 67 feet from the 4,770 square-foot stage.

The Spencer also has a 964 square-foot outdoor stage that can seat 1,500. From its Spanish mica-flecked limestone face to the crystal lobby, the building itself is a work of art. Additionally, a permanent collection of dazzling Dale Chihuly hand-blown glass sculptures adorn both levels of the lobby as well as the facility’s private Founder’s Dining Room and loggia. Free public tours are offered at 10 a.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the year.

With the $22 million Spencer Theater standing as the front door to Rainmakers, owners here enjoy a special relationship with the venue, as well as touring artists. The opportunities for private dining, backstage experiences with the performers, and special holiday programs add genuine depth to the Rainmakers’ experience.
