The first event booked for the City Springs Performing Arts Center comes from the city's mayor, Rusty Paul. The the theatre in the center — which was recently named the Byers Theatre for a benefactor who donated $2.5 million — will host Sandy Springs' annual "State of the City" address on June 26, 2018.

The theatre will also serve as the new home for bi-weekly council meetings when it opens.

“City Springs was envisioned by our residents as a place to gather, enjoy fellowship, and as a home for the city’s stewardship,” Paul said in a statement. “It is fitting that our first booked event for the studio theatre focuses on the what’s ahead for the City of Sandy Springs.”

The 350-seat studio theater is a 5,000-square foot flexible space that can be configured to serve as a meeting space, a venue for small performances or a location for corporate meetings and banquet-style events.

The State of the City address is open to the public. The event includes a luncheon, and reservations are required. To reserve seats, contact the Sandy Springs Perimeter Chamber office at 678-443-2990 or visit
