Henderson Fine Arts Center

The Henderson Fine Arts Center is the heart of San Juan College’s Fine and Performing Arts Department. The center includes a 688-seat auditorium/theater, instrumental, vocal, and recording studios, and public meeting rooms. It’s also home to the Henderson Fine Arts Center Art Gallery.

Connie Gotsch Theatre

Formerly known as the Little Theatre, the Connie Gotsch Theatre is located in the Central Classroom Complex. The 7,770 square-foot theatre includes 314 auditorium seats, a ticket booth, a lobby, dressing rooms, and a special Connie Gotsch display case. The theatre was renamed and remodeled in 2021 thanks to the Connie Gotsch Arts Foundation and the generosity of private donors. 

The Connie Gotsch Theatre hosts San Juan College and community events. Because of the foundation's ongoing support through an endowment, nonprofit organizations may use the theatre free of charge. 

Black Box Theatre

Adjacent to the Connie Gotsch Theatre is the Black Box Theatre. This small, versatile performance space serves as a blank canvas for creative expression. Mostly used for small classes and experimental productions, the Black Box Theatre is a simple room with black walls, a flat floor, lights, and sound. This undefined space can be transformed to suit various theatrical productions and accommodates about 100 people. And it even has a podcast studio right next door.
