Burd Center for the Performing Arts
Brenau University's John S. Burd Center for the Performing Arts opened its doors in April 2002 to the university family and to the North Georgia community. Located at 429 Academy Street, this building has been years in the planning. It all started with the dream to provide state-of-the-art theatre and classroom facilities for the performing arts departments and the need to alleviate overuse of century-old Pearce Auditorium. The center adds a new dimension to the arts programs at Brenau and adds another dimension to arts organizations in Gainesville and Hall County.
