Oscar Schindler

Center for Performing Arts Center

The Oskar Schindler Performing Arts Center (OSPAC), opened in 2001, was named in honor of Oskar Schindler a Sudeten German Industrialist who saved nearly 1,200 European Jews during the Holocaust. 

Larry Pantirer of Millennium Homes, working closely with Town Councilman John Skarbnik, donated the amphitheater to the Township of West Orange. Pantirer's father Murray was one of the many who were saved by Oskar Schindler. The story was chronicled in the Hollywood blockbuster film Schindler’s List. 


Located at 4 Boland Drive, West Orange, N.J. and nestled next to historic Crystal Lake, the facility features an open air amphitheater built into the natural slope of the land. OSPAC is located conveniently off of exit 8B on Rt 280.
