The below update applies to the ECC Arts Center’s CenterStage roster of touring artists and ECC Theatre's performance of As You Like It. The statuses of other ECC performance ensemble events, in-residence ensemble events, and rental events scheduled for or typically held in the fall of 2020 are still being assessed. 


After much discussion both internally and with our scheduled touring artists, the ECC Arts Center has made the decision to postpone our fall 2020 CenterStage season to spring 2021. This decision was not made lightly and takes into consideration a number of factors including the current difficulty surrounding artists’ tour logistics; making our large theatres available for potential classroom use while there is a need to maintain social distance; and, foremost, the health and safety of our performers, audiences, and community.

We would like to express our gratitude to both our CenterStage artists and their management teams for working with us to reschedule performance dates (many for a second time). Rescheduled dates and guidance for ticket buyers is included at the end of this update.

Our guiding mission for the last 10 years has been to “Do Art Differently.” We remain committed to creating unique and surprising art experiences within our community. However, during this time when it has become more difficult to make and experience performance, we’re now being guided by the words “Make Art Always.”

Art has been an integral source of connection, community, inspiration, relief, and hope throughout human history. We are committed to making art for you and with you in the days to come.

We are currently curating and crafting a “Make Art Always” digital performance season. This virtual season will present exclusive content from both professional performers as well as community/student artists and ensembles. More information on this season can be found on our Facebook page. We’ll also be asking for feedback and inviting you to make art with us throughout this process—because, as a community arts center, our art is for you.

Updates on the Arts Center’s season schedule (both virtual and in-house) will continue to be posted to this page and the Arts Center’s Facebook page.


The below events include four CenterStage performances originally scheduled for spring 2020,  two CenterStage events we had announced for fall 2020, and ECC Theatre's fall production of As You Like It. Please note that the ECC Arts Center Box Office remains closed at this time and our staff is working remotely. Questions can be directed to
