Arts Center Tickets

How to Purchase Tickets

To purchase tickets to ECC Arts Center Virtual Events, visit our upcoming events list. Ticket sales to all other events were suspended effective December 1, 2020, and will resume sales by summer 2021.

The ticket software industry changed abruptly and dramatically during the COVID pandemic, which forced us to change our ticketing system. This conversion time allows us to implement the necessary technical changes and staff training on the new system to create an improved sales process and continue our reliable service to you.

This will have no impact on any current tickets you hold. Your tickets are still reserved, and there should be no further disruption of service to you. We appreciate your continued loyalty to us and look forward to when we can gather again as a community for live performances.

If you have any questions, please email us at artscenter@elgin.edu.

CenterStage Updates

After much discussion, both internally and with our scheduled touring artists, the ECC Arts Center has made decided to postpone our Spring 2021 CenterStage season. 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. 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 the 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. 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.
