Wallace Performing Arts Center
Greenwich, Connecticut

The Wallace Performing Arts Center serves the dance, drama, and music programs of Greenwich Academy, an independent school for girls in grades Pre-K through 12. The center provides a safe and supportive environment for student performers to enhance their artistic growth. In addition to the intimate 400-seat Massey Theater, the center houses a studio theater, dance studio, video lab, music classrooms, shops, and other support spaces.
