Temporary Ticketing and Performance Changes
With vaccination rates continuing to climb, the Department of Theatre and Cinema is planning to return to live theatre performances for our productions this academic year. These plans are subject to change depending on how the pandemic crisis unfolds as well as how updates to campus and/or state guidelines might change.
Another significant change comes with the groundbreaking of our future home - the Center for Adaptive Innovation and Creativity! As we await construction of our future facilities, Porterfield Hall, which housed our performance theatres, is being taken down and, as such, the majority of our performances this academic year will take place in Bondurant Auditorium in Preston Hall. Be sure to note the location of a production’s performances when making reservations since our former facilities are no longer in use.
We hope that our box office will be back to normal operations for the majority of the season. However, in some cases, such as “Georgia Mae James Unplugs America,” we may be presenting a production via a virtual format. In those instances, our box office will operate a bit differently. If a production shifts to a virtual performance, you will still be able to reserve/purchase tickets for the shows once they go on sale (approximately two weeks before a production’s first performance). After tickets are reserved, you will receive an email within several business days with a link and instructions on how to access the virtual performance on your reserved date and time. If a show is converted to a virtual performance after tickets have been reserved, you will receive an email containing login information for a virtual performance. In all cases, it is extremely important that you take care to provide us with your correct e-mail address when you set up your account and make any ticket purchases/reservations, as this is how we will distribute links to any virtual productions.
