Construction has begun on a $60 Million performing arts center at the George Mason University Prince William campus. It will open in spring 2010, and will be called the Hylton Performing Arts Center.
The center will have two theatres, a reception hall and an art gallery. One of the theatres, to be named Merchant Hall, will have 1166 seats in a 19th-century European opra house type setting.
I believe this center will have a great impact on our area, both culturally and economically. This center will also make our area more attractive to home buyers.
