New Jersey Performing Arts Center's 514-seat Victoria Theatre, pictured above, showcases regional and community events and special programs for school children. Approximately 350 people can be accommodated on the main floor and about 160 in the balcony and side boxes.

Photo at left illustrates the hall's soaring, light-filled, four-story lobby, with oversize windows affording views of Military Park. The stacked balcony fašades provide an ideal vantage point for people watching.  

Photo at bottom left shows the Rehearsal Room, with its view of downtown Newark. This room, in addition to providing high ceilinged, column-free space for dance and drama rehearsals, is a popular spot for banquets, which return additional revenues to the Center.

The complex is located in downtown Newark and faces both the City and the Passaic River waterfront.
