Sacred Heart University will formally dedicate the Edgerton Center for the Performing Arts in honor of Charles and Freda Edgerton on Sunday, March 11th, at 2:30 p.m. The dedication ceremony will take place in the lobby of the Edgerton Center.  

The Edgerton Center for the Performing Arts at Sacred Heart University is the Edgertons’ latest contribution to the community. They have contributed substantially to the University to lead the refurbishing of this vital community resource. For the first time in its history, the auditorium is air conditioned, and the more than 775 seats have all been replaced. Now a Center for All Seasons, it’s available to students, faculty and the community for a wide variety of artistic endeavors.

The Edgerton Center is dedicated to creating and presenting high quality programming for families, students and the community that will entertain, educate and challenge. It strives to extend and supplement the intellectual life of the classroom for students from Pre-K through college, thus creating opportunities for community and University interaction, while reflecting the ethnic, faith and cultural diversity of the region.
