South Orange Performing Arts Center Overview

Opening its doors in 2006, SOPAC quickly became a regional destination for experiencing world-class music, theatre, dance, comedy, and visual art in a modern, yet intimate space. Both the 439-seat theatre and the urban-style loft at the South Orange Performing Arts Center are available for your wedding day. The SOPAC Theatre and the Loft are well equipped to host a variety wedding sizes and styles. Your guests will be delighted with the intimate and welcoming atmosphere, the dramatic 3-story atrium lobby and the friendly staff. The charming Village of South Orange with its gaslit streets enhances the experience of facility rentals. The NJ Transit station is only steps away from SOPAC and makes transportation simple for people traveling to and from New York City, only 35 minutes via the midtown direct train. SOPAC is easily accessible by car via I-280, I-78, and the Garden State Parkway. Celebrate love at South Orange Performing Arts Center.
