Richard Brunelle Performance Hall


In accordance with the mission and vision of the Davis Joint Unified School District, the Instructional Performing Arts Building strives to provide a safe venue where students can develop their knowledge of the performing arts through experimentation and practical experience in a well equipped, modern facility.  The Instructional Performing Arts Building also strives to foster the arts in Davis by being open to use by students and community groups alike.


The Brunelle Performance Hall is available for rentals to the Davis community and beyond. The facility is equipped to handle lectures, concerts, film screenings, theatrical performances, and most other types of public events.

Theater staff can accommodate the technical needs of most events, although groups booking the theater are welcome to bring in additional staff and equipment as necessary.  Oftentimes students may be available to help staff events, as it provides the unique opportunity for district students to be exposed to performances beyond their school experience.

The theater can be booked hourly, daily, or weekly depending on need. Since the availability of the theater varies, please contact the Performing Arts Facilities Coordinator for rates and availability.
