The Nancy O’Brian Center for the Performing Arts

  • The Nancy O’Brian Center for the Performing Arts is the showcase performance venue for Norman Public Schools. Located on North Stubbeman Avenue, adjacent to Norman North High School, the Center features a 1,200-seat Main Stage, a 200-seat Studio Theatre, Scene and Costume Shops, and an Art Gallery. The Center was conceived and designed as a unique performance facility, augmenting and serving schools across the district. The Center exists to provide students with curriculum-related arts experiences that are not possible in the normal classroom setting.

    An additional mission of the Center is to serve as a performance and activity venue for the Norman Community and the Central Oklahoma Region. While the Center was built primarily to house arts events created for and by our students, it is available for outside rentals on dates not already designated for student use. The Performing Arts Center’s public use is managed by the Norman Public School District. Non-NPS events will be scheduled beginning the first week of June.
