The Clark Center always has a wide variety of productions to choose from- local events to outside venues. We love the variety, the ease of purchasing tickets online, comfortable seating, outstanding restrooms, and free, easy parking.

This venue is a great local attraction to top name artists such as Willie Nelson. Very comfortable seating - not a bad seat in the house. Used for professional acts as well as local school and business events.
