Carteret Performing Arts Center set to open with The Smithereens

The Carteret Performing Arts Center is set to open on Saturday with a performance by hometown rockers The Smithereens.
The URSB Carteret Performing Arts & Events Center is a $51 million multipurpose facility owned by the city, and has multiple performance spaces and gallery areas for art exhibits.
The venue is hoping that its removable theater seating will attract sporting events and trade shows, which will bring additional visitors to help boost the local economy.
