John and Dede Howard Auditorium at St. Joseph High School

Considered "The Crown Jewel" of the High School renovations, the newly refurbished auditorium was made possible by the generous donations of John and Dede Howard, both of whom are big supporters of the performing arts in our community. The space is home to many SJPS events including The High School Musical, The All-School Play, The Variety Show, many Band/Orchestra/Choir Concerts, The Encore show, and many others. In addition to the beautifully redesigned lobby, the auditorium now features more efficient LED lighting, redesigned spatial acoustics, digital lighting and sound systems, an HD Projection system, and 933 comfortable seats.


The auditorium is available to rent for theatrical productions, dance shows, concerts, pageants, or other community activities. If you are interested in booking the auditorium for one of your events, or have any questions regarding the space, please contact Nate Jones, the Auditorium Director, by sending an email to
