In Huntsville, you’ll soon go to The Moon to experience the arts! The Moon – the City of Huntsville’s Sandra Moon Community Complex – is the site of the former Grissom High School, which is already home to the new South Huntsville Library and beautiful outdoor recreation facilities.
In fall of 2023, Arts Huntsville will assume management of The Moon’s renovated performing arts wing, with office and rehearsal facilities for Huntsville’s nonprofit performing arts groups. Coming in 2025, The Moon’s 800-seat theatre and expanded performance facilities will welcome audiences to this vibrant new community venue in South Huntsville.
The Moon will offer Huntsville’s performing arts groups a collaborative home with offices for six or more nonprofit organizations. Offices range in size from 130 sf to 600 sf and include shared breakroom and meeting areas. Resident companies will also have first access to The Moon’s choral and instrumental rehearsal facilities for year-round rehearsals. For more information on nonprofit arts office space at The Moon, contact Amy Jones, Arts Huntsville Communications and Special Projects Manager.
The Moon’s vocal and instrumental rehearsal facilities were once home to Grissom High School’s chorus and band programs. These well-used and beloved facilities have been fully renovated to accommodate performing arts groups of all sizes. Beginning in late summer 2023, The Moon will welcome performers throughout the week for rehearsals. For more information on nonprofit arts office space at The Moon, contact Amy Jones, Arts Huntsville Communications and Special Projects Manager.
Live performances will land at The Moon in 2025! Featuring a 600 – 700 seat proscenium theater, The Moon is a flexible performance space operated jointly with the City of Huntsville Parks and Recreation Department. With new backstage facilities, and renovated public areas, The Moon will be an exciting arts and entertainment destination for area residents and visitors.
