Bethel Performing Arts Center

The Bethel Performing Arts Center is located in the historic former McKenzie First Cumberland Presbyterian Church building and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Because Bethel University saved this beautiful building, many community members, alumni, and friends can still enjoy its awesome architecture and history.

The Bethel Performing Arts Center has been the setting for many theatrical productions by the Renaissance Theatre. Renaissance, the Bethel Performing Arts Experience presents its annual "Christmas with Renaissance" concerts to standing room only crowds each year. Concerts by The Bethel University Singers, The Renaissance Symphonic and Jazz Bands, The Bethel Percussion Ensemble, and special concerts by Bethel's music faculty and guest artists are presented for the enjoyment of the community.
