The Paul Mellon Arts Center at Choate Rosemary Hall in Wallingford is not just a performing arts center for the Choate students, but it is also a masterpiece of modern architecture designed by I.M. Pei. The facility is named for Paul Mellon, son of Andrew Mellon (former Secretary of the Treasury), who attended Choate during the 1920s. The Main Stage, which seats 800, hosts a variety of shows put on by students and by touring artists, including the big spring musical, with past shows like Grand Hotel, Little Shop of Horrors, Chicago and Les Misérables. Throughout the year, there are children's theater productions too, often based on classic children's books. There is also an Experimental Theater (often called "The Black Box") where improv, theater practices and small cabaret shows are put on. On the other side of the arts center is the Art Gallery where student works are displayed and you can find students studying and lounging on the couches.
