Located at Stockton University, formerly known as Richard Stockton State College and The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, in Galloway, NJ, The Performing Arts Center (PAC Center) was first proposed in 1973 to be a Regional Center in the Fine and Performing Arts. By November 5, 1976, the Performing Arts Center was established as a main performance facility/theatre including the Experimental Theatre which is located on the lower part of the Performing Arts Center. 

Throughout its 43+ years of history, the Performing Arts Center has opened its stage to not just the students and faculty of Stockton University, but to world-wide professional performers, groups, lecturers, local schools, and community programs.

Many annual performing programs include the Subscription Series, Centerstage Series, Professional Guest Artists, Children’s Summer Playhouse, Seasonal Performances, and numerous Stockton University’s School of Arts and Humanities (ARHU) semester concerts and programs.
