Your Beautiful Prestigious Performance Venue - Presenting the Linda W. Chapin Theatre at the Orange County Convention Centre.
Offering aesthetic and technical perfection, the Orange County Convention Center's 2,643-seat Linda W. Chapin Theater provides an ideal venue for The International Gathering of Scottish Highland Dance. A beautiful auditorium with comfortable tiered theatre style seating means you can sit and enjoy the performances with an unrivalled view of your dancers on stage. State-of-the-art equipment and staging and in-house technical staff mean performances will be displayed in the best possible lighting with amazing sound, on a stage (that has hosted everything from rock stars to national ballets) worthy of the abilities of our dancers. Registration will take place on the grand atrium lobby and IGSHD will also feature an ample changing and warm up area (for 2019 situated adjacent to the theatre entrance on the same floor of the grand lobby for convenience) as well as new “quick change” areas backstage for when routines fall close together on the schedule.
