Opened in 1989, Chandler Center for the Arts hosts plays, dance performances, musical productions and visual arts, regularly bringing in a mix of local and national artists.
The center, which is a shared facility between the city and the Chandler Unified School District, is home to more than 1,000 events per year, ranging from student productions to nationally renowned acts. The performances are spread between three stages, including the 1,500-seat main stage, the 350-seat Hal Bogle Theatre and the 250-seat recital center, giving community members access to a variety of free and ticketed productions.
Michelle Mac Lennan, general manager of the Chandler Center for the Arts, said the Best of Chandler nomination was terrific to hear.

When East Valley residents are looking for a brief getaway to decompress and escape the sweltering summer heat, they usually turn their eyes northward to the cooler climes of Prescott, Flagstaff or the Mogollon Rim.

Red Rocks Music Festival
It took all of two seconds for me to lose any enthusiasm for the “Expendables 3,” and an additional three seconds to realize how stupid the additional two-plus more hours of screen time would be. It came from on-screen text to inform the audience the train they’re seeing on screen is an “armored prison transport,” which is made quite clear once star Sylvester Stallone and his compatriots start shooting the heck out of that thing.
