Long Description:
The Harris Center (formerly Three Stage) Theater is located on the Campus of Folsom Lake College in Folsom California. It opened in 2011. As the name implies there are three stages.

It is located on the campus of Folsom Lake College at 10 College Parkway in Folsom, California. It is a $50 million facility dedicated to the performing and visual arts. Artists arrive from around the world, and throughout the community, to the newest arts venue in the capital region.

In August, 2011, Three Stages was recognized as the Project of The Year by the Region Builders association for the Sacramento region. Representing ten major industries, Region Builders identified Three Stages as the award recipient because of its massive community impact, good design, construction and innovative elements.

Three Stages opened in 2011 and exceeded revenue expectations for its first year.

Stage One: 850-seat Theater. With a 46-foot proscenium, full stage house and orchestra pit, this is a venue capable of presenting all of the arts, from Broadway to symphonies, contemporary dance to world music.

Stage Two: 200-seat City Studio Theater. The City Studio has gently raked seating and, like the larger theater next door, not a bad seat in the house. It's a unique space, and an excellent venue for community partners, student productions and presented programs.

Stage Three: 100-seat Scott-Skillman Recital Hall. An exceptional setting for acoustic music and vocals - the reverberation is exquisite. Three Stages at its most intimate, Stage Three offers a phenomenal space for classical music, film and more.

Black Box. A flexible space in Three Stages perfect for rehearsal...or a sit-down dinner...or to teach a class...or to create a work of art...or to present one's newest work.

Recording Studio. Perhaps the largest recording studio in the capital region, enabling most every space in the center to be recorded live - audio or visual - at the press of a button. Strictly state-of-the-art.

Bank of America Gallery. A wonderful space located near the front entrance of Three Stages, to provide visual art exhibitions - national, regional, local, student - that reflect and engage the many audiences of the new center.

Grand Lobby & Mercy Mezzanine. An innovative point of convergence in the center, a unique gathering place for audience, for friends, for a conversation with the artist afterwards.
