As one of the region's finest performance venues, the Duke Family Performance Hall (DFPH) has quickly become a popular cultural resource for the Charlotte Metro area. The 600+ seat proscenium theatre is housed within the Knobloch Campus Center along with the Alvarez College Union, creating a seamless relationship between academics, art, entertainment, and college community life. The entrance to the performance hall is located on the atrium level (second floor) of the campus center.

Seating Policy

Doors open approximately 30 minutes before curtain time. Tickets are general admission. As a courtesy to performers and audience members, latecomers will not be seated until a suitable pause in the performance.


Parking is available in the Baker Sports Complex lot with handicap parking available directly behind the Knobloch Campus Center.
