A steel beam was hoisted atop the Deer Creek Performing Arts and Athletic Center on Tuesday, marking the final stages of exterior construction for the 122,000-square-foot building.

The $24.5 million center will be a space for band and orchestra, drama and speech, pom and cheerleading, basketball, volleyball, vocal music and other arts and athletics.

School Board President David Miller said excitement for the new center is palpable.

“People are just saying ‘wow.' ... It will be a community centerpiece,” he said.

The 1,500-seat performing arts auditorium at 20701 N MacArthur Blvd. will include a multipurpose room, sound booth, stage, orchestra pit, catwalk, service space with an overhead door, scenery and costume shop, drama room, dressing rooms, performers' lounge, and band and vocal music rooms with practice rooms, libraries and office space.

The athletic facility will seat 2,500 people and will have an elevator, offices, training area, lockers, storage space, and laundry and conference rooms.
