Response and Updates

Although the Center remains closed until further notice, we still want you to connect to important news, information, and FAQs about our response to COVID-19. During this time, look for updates on this page, via email, as well as on our social media channels.

Your safety and well-being is our priority. Under the University’s guidance, we began those safety measures on March 11, 2020, by canceling all events at the Center for the remainder of the academic year. [Read the announcement]

Through your support, you have shown that you believe in the power of live performance and the cinematic arts. Thank you.



Questions About Upcoming Events

Will I receive a Presenting Series season brochure?
Due to these extraordinary circumstances, the 2020–2021 season brochure is only available online.

When do tickets go on sale?
Presenting Series season tickets sales end July 17 and single ticket sales begin on a date to be announced this fall.

Will any additional shows be postponed or canceled?
On July 1 we announced the cancellation of fall Presenting Series events and Browning Cinema screenings. At this time, events scheduled for the spring 2021 season are expected to proceed as planned. We’ll communicate any other program changes via the Center’s website, email, and social media.

How do you handle refunds?
If a paid, ticketed event is canceled or postponed to protect public and community health you may request the Ticket Office place those funds on your DPAC account for future use or process a refund to the original method of payment. Refer to Ticket Information for details.

Will the canceled fall Presenting Series shows be rescheduled?
While we regret these cancellations, our priority is your safe return to planned events this spring. We recommend following our social channels, signing up to receive our emails, and referring to this page for information on upcoming events.

Can you have events outside?
While outside events may be held safely following the proper protocols, that isn’t an option under consideration for any Presenting Series or cinema programming at this time.

Will you offer shows or movies online?
We learned a lot from this spring’s Zoom Back Camera virtual cinema series. Currently, we’re working to decide what’s possible and will provide updates later this summer.

Will there be reduced seating available inside venues when you reopen to the public?
It’s possible the Center’s safe return to presenting in January would be at reduced venue capacities. If that’s required, we will do our best to keep season ticket holders close to their preferred seats. As we complete reopening plans, we’ll share details on the health and safety protocols the Center is implementing, and those that patrons and visitors must follow.
