Bergen County Academies • 200 Hackensack Avenue • Hackensack, NJ 07601

The auditorium at Bergen County Academies is a fully equipped, state-of-the-art performance space. It is the home of BCA's Academy of Visual and Performing Arts which presents three major productions annually.

The facility has a seating capacity of 1,192. The proscenium thrust stage includes an orchestra pit that can accommodate up to 30 musicians. The pre-focused house repertory lighting plot is user friendly and can support most single day events with ease. Adjustable proscenium doors allow full use of the spacious 58-foot opening by grand opera companies and symphony orchestras alike. Respectively, concert promoters find the space ideal for creating the intimacy solo artists crave when the doors are closed to 40 feet. Event managers can impress their audiences with technology equipped to support web casts, network teleconferencing, power point, DVD and video presentations on our large format (16 x 20) foot screen. With ample on site parking, the auditorium at Bergen County Academies is considered by many as one of the premier performance sites in the northern part of the state.
