I can’t wait to welcome you back to our theatre for a season of captivating performances! Attending a show at the Carpenter Center may feel a little different this year, but one thing won’t change: the joy of experiencing the arts with family and friends, and the thrill of seeing favorite artists and new discoveries.

Here’s what you need to know as we move closer to reopening:

  • We’ll begin announcing our upcoming shows soon, including cabaret performances

  • Tickets will go on sale later this fall

  • We’re skipping subscriptions for this COVID-impacted season, but they’ll be back for our 2022-2023 season

  • To keep you safe, masks will be required for performances this fall
