The first full season of operation was the 2006-07 school year. The district administration and governing board is dedicated to the concept that the HCPA is more than a high school auditorium. It is truly an arts facility for the fast growing area of South Gilbert and surrounding community. Therefore, the mission is to provide a facility where all members of the community can participate as audience, performer or presenter. The 37,500 square foot building includes two performance spaces. The Concert Hall seats 1235 people and has all of the technical amenities one would expect in a professional venue. The 186 seat Little Theater has is the perfect place for events that require a smaller stage but with stage lighting and sound. The modern architecture and furnishings of the extensive wrap-around lobby connects the two venues and provides ample space for a variety of uses.
