Due to the cancellation of all group activities, in-person class instruction, and events at the University of Georgia for the remainder of spring semester, the Performing Arts Center’s spring season will be greatly impacted.

  • All performances, rehearsals, and events at the Performing Arts Center are canceled through the middle of May and possibly later, depending on how the situation evolves.
  • All performances sponsored by the Hugh Hodgson School of Music, UGA Theatre, Dept. of Dance, and rental events during this period are canceled. Tickets will be automatically refunded if purchased with a credit card. Patrons who used cash or check to purchase tickets should contact the box office directly by calling (706) 542-4400 or emailing ugaarts @

It pains us to turn off the lights in our venues for the next two months, but we know this will bring safety and peace to our community during this challenging and unprecedented time in our history. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to work through the ramifications of these cancellations and changes.

If you are in a position to do so, we invite you to donate funds used to pay for your tickets back to the Performing Arts Center as a tax exempt donation. Of course, anyone wishing to receive a full refund will receive it.

Because we are operating at a reduced capacity at the box office, it may take some time to finalize all donations, exchanges, and/or refunds. We appreciate your patience as we try to communicate with you.

We apologize for the inconvenience and disappointment of this news. We appreciate your patience and continued support and hope everyone stays safe and healthy.
