COVID-19 Updates

Performances and Events Update

As part of our collective effort to minimize the impact of Coronavirus/COVID-19 to our community, George Mason University has cancelled all public gatherings through May 18, 2020. As a result, all performances at the Center for the Arts at George Mason University and all other venues managed by the College of Visual and Performing Arts through May 18, 2020 are cancelled.  As of March 25, 2020, the Ticket Office is closed for in person and phone transactions. Contact the Ticket Office via email at or fill out this contact form.

If you have tickets to a performance that is cancelled, you should have been contacted by the Ticket Office with details about your tickets. If you haven’t, please check your spam folder or fill out the form below.

Ticket Office Update

As part of our continuing focus on the safety of our community, the Center for the Arts will be closed to the general public for the foreseeable future.  As a result, we regret to announce that we are unable to communicate with our patrons over the phone and in person. At this time, email is the only way to interact with the Ticket Office staff. Please email and we will connect with you as soon as possible.  

Important Information for Ticket Holders

Outstanding tickets from the 2019/2020 seasons will be refunded to the original payment method on June 1, 2020. If you wish to receive credit for the 2020/2021 season or you would like to donate your tickets as a tax-deductible contribution, please submit the ticket option form before the June 1, 2020 deadline. Thank you!

As cancellations of performances and gatherings become more widespread in the wake of COVID-19, the financial impact on artists and presenters around the world is becoming a harsh reality. Please consider donating the cost of your ticket(s) or choose a credit to use for a future performance.

If you have tickets to a performance that is cancelled, please consider taking advantage of one of these three options.

  1. We hope you will consider donating the cost of your ticket(s) back to the Center for the Arts as a tax-deductible contribution to support the arts in this difficult time.
  2. You may choose to receive a credit for the value of your ticket(s) to be used in the 2020-2021 season.
  3. If neither of the above options work for you, you may elect to receive a refund.

To take advantage of these options, you may:

  1. Fill out this form with your preference
  2. Contact the Ticket Office via email at

Moving Forward

We believe, more strongly than ever, that the arts create community, even, or especially, in this time when large gatherings are restricted. To that end, we are thinking creatively about how we might continue to share the arts and artistic experiences with you over the coming weeks. 

Any forthcoming updates related to coronavirus/COVID-19 will be posted here. George Mason University has also established a website with information for the greater Mason community.  The Center for the Arts and George Mason University are diligently monitoring the COVID-19 situation, and are following the guidelines from the CDC and the Virginia Department of Health. 

Thank you for your continued support and understanding as we navigate these unprecedented circumstances.
