Lexington Two Performing Arts Center (L2PAC)

Lexington School District Two is the proud home to a nearly 72,000-square-foot Performing Arts Center, located at 3205 Platt Springs Road in West Columbia. The culmination of a decade-long vision, this state-of-the-art facility, which opened May 1, 2024, welcomes students, educators, and the community at large to experience the transformative power of the arts.

While the primary mission of the Lexington Two Performing Arts Center (L2PAC) is for student and employee engagement and education, the Lexington Two Board of Trustees, Superintendent, and Executive Director of the L2PAC are excited to open the facility to commercial and non-commercial lessees when it is not in use by Lex2 students and/or staff, to offer a space for meetings, trade shows, featured speaker events, concerts, plays, and other occasions. Enjoy beautiful event spaces that are enhanced by state of the art sound, seating, and stage and technical equipment guaranteed to elevate your event.


The Performing Arts Center features a two-level balcony accommodating over 1,500 guests, a grand lobby downstairs and an additional lobby on the second floor overlooking the lower lobby. It boasts four meeting and event breakout spaces, including two that hold up to 300 people. The facility also features a full orchestra pit with a lift, a loading dock with easy access to the scene shop and stage, state-of-the-art stage lighting and sound systems, four dressing rooms and one large green room, concession areas, a catering kitchen, two large dividable multipurpose rooms, and 535 total parking spaces, including 17 handicap accessible spaces.
