Theater Rental

The Indian Wells Theater is a 300-seat professional performing arts center that offers comfortable seating in an intimate and inviting setting. Excellent acoustics and sightlines, high production values, first-class amenities, helpful staff and affordable rental rates make the theater an ideal venue for live performances and large assemblies.

The theater is ideally suited to accommodate a wide range of performances, including opera, ballet, orchestral music, plays, comedy, meetings and lectures. The theater has showcased the performances of world-renowned talents, as well as local school drama clubs, orchestras, bands, dance companies and choral groups.

Campus Tours

We offer tours of the campus every Friday at 10 am or by appointment. Tours of the entire campus take about 45 minutes and include the four buildings, campus history, information about technology, our commitment to the environment (particularly the LEED Gold certified Health Science building) and planned future growth. Condensed tours are available upon request. For campus tours and information, please contact Jack Macfarlane.
