COVID-19 Update

Updated: April 24, 2020 | 4:47 PM EST

In response to new COVID-19 guidelines issued Monday by state and federal officials, the Center for the Performing Arts is extending its previously announced suspension of all performances and other events on its campus through June 30, 2020. The extension adds four weeks to the one-month suspension the Center announced Friday.

This extension includes the cancellation of Civic Theatre’s productions, A FEW GOOD MEN, MATILDA, FROZEN JR., REVUE!, and SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER.

In the interest of safety to our patrons, students, and instructors, these activities at Civic Theatre will be suspended:

  • Civic’s run of A FEW GOOD MEN
  • Civic's run of MATILDA
  • All remaining Winter Classes
  • The beginning of Spring Classes
  • Civic's run of FROZEN JR.
  • Civic's run of both REVUE! and SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER

All families affected by the class cancellations will be contacted by members of Civic’s Education Department.

The extension adds four weeks to the one-month suspension the Center announced Friday. Today, Gov. Eric Holcomb announced that the state is following new CDC guidelines recommending no gatherings of more than 50 people for the next eight weeks. President Donald Trump announced on March 16th a federal guideline that limits gatherings to no more than 10 people.

Civic Theatre, with direction from the Center, will continue to follow the guidance of public safety officials and will continue to reassess the policy  to determine if the suspension needs to be extended.

Civic’s offices will remain in operation during standard business hours. Tickets and registration for events, classes, and performances not affected by the suspension can still be purchased on this website.

Patrons with questions or concerns about tickets may contact Patron Services at (317) 843-3800 or
