About LeTourneau University Belcher Center
Welcome to the home of Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker in Longview! The S.E. Belcher Jr. Chapel and Performance Center is the premier performance center for the city of Longview, Texas, and surrounding communities. With world-class acoustics and staging, the center attracts shows that Longview residents would not be able to see without traveling many miles. Designed by professionals in architecture and theater design, the center opened in 2007 and features 1,400 seats on the ground level and another 600 seats in two, opera-style balconies. The building features a full working stage and orchestra lift, as well as prop and staging areas, dressing rooms, soundproofed rehearsal rooms, classrooms and offices. It is the largest single-building capital campaign in LeTourneau University's 63-year history.
