Platt Student Performing Arts House offers a supportive programmatic home for creative exploration and expression. We advise and train students pursuing their extra-curricular passions for the performing arts and those preparing for a career in the arts. Platt Student Performing Arts House is named for 1979 graduates Marc E. and Julie Beren Platt. 

Platt House is temporarily closed due to COVID-19. Platt House staff are still available as a resource for students engaging virtually in the performing arts! Please contact our team at, or email a staff member directly with your questions.


PAC Con 2020 is over and done! Head over to our event archive for captioned recordings of this year’s PAC Con sessions.

It was a joy seeing all of you on Zoom last weekend! For those of you who missed a session, had time zone constraints, or want to share and review content, just head over the PAC Con Event page or watch all 8 sessions on our Youtube playlist..

Don’t forget to fill out the PAC Con survey! Send us an email if you attended but did not receive a survey invitation.
