Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center

1 Galambos Way, Sandy Springs, GA 30328



To enhance the quality of life of the Sandy Springs community by providing diverse arts, entertainment, educational, business, and civic opportunities.

Creating the Performing Arts Center

When the City of Sandy Springs incorporated in 2005, the City lacked a center point and a traditional component of most cities – a town square. That challenge presented the community with the unique opportunity to craft its downtown from scratch, transforming a centrally-located strip mall with a huge asphalt parking lot into a 21st Century town square.

The community asked for the creation of a unique, vibrant, walkable City Center, introducing new dining, high-end residential living, and amenity retail and entertainment options.  The community also sought an appropriate setting for a performing arts facility.  

The resulting design created a complex which features a main theatre designed to support a wide-range of programs and activities. Sizeable at 1,070 seats, the Byers Theatre also incorporates a sense of intimacy ideal for theatre productions. Versatility is the best adjective to describe the Studio Theatre which provides the right sized venue for smaller productions, in addition to its flexibility to meet the needs of corporate meetings and events.  CityBar. offers patrons a convenient spot to grab a drink before the show. 

Located above the Studio Theatre is an open-air City View Terrace, offering compelling views of City Springs and beyond. This rentable space is equally fitting as an intimate performance space or reception. The Terrace is adjacent to the Conference Center which offers a variety of spaces for company meetings and special events.

Outdoors, the City Green offers visitors the opportunity to enjoy live music, theatre and special events with a canopy of sun and stars.  Be sure to make time to wander the campus and enjoy the sculpture garden as part of Arts in the Open.


Visitors to the Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center can access the internet at no charge. This free Wi-Fi access is available through X-Finity and extends throughout the campus, and beyond into the district south to Hildebrand Drive.
