Darte Center for the Performing Arts

Housing the 478-seat Darling Theatre and the 60-seat Blackbox Theatre, the Darte Center is more than just home to the fine arts at Wilkes—it’s a cultural hub for all of Wilkes-Barre. You can take a class in acting, star in a Gershwin classic or watch the football team show off their moves in the spring dance recital (something that’s become an unofficial school tradition).
