The Myrtle Woldson Performing Arts Center
The Myrtle Woldson Performing Arts Center welcomes Spokane-area audiences to year-round music, theatre, and dance performances by Gonzaga students and faculty, regional performers and arts organizations, and national artists and productions.
The new Center was made possible through an extraordinary $55 million gift from the late Miss Myrtle Woldson. Through her generosity and love for the arts, Miss Woldson has provided a state-of-the-art facility where the Gonzaga community and people of Spokane can learn, create, share, and enjoy the performing arts.
