The Theatre Centre is committed to providing the utmost flexibility for our patrons in light of the postponement and cancellation of shows due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If you have tickets to THE HOLLOW, BAREFOOT IN THE PARK, CAT IN THE HAT, DREAMGIRLS, or MAMMA MIA, or if you have unused season tickets, we assure you that we are working diligently to streamline the process of making other arrangements for you. Therefore, we have introduced a new policy.
We can convert any tickets you currently hold to AnyTime Passes for the 2020-2021 season. Traditionally, our AnyTime season subscriptions have provided subscribers with the flexibility to save while selecting any combination of shows they wish to see. Likewise, AnyTime Passes will allow you to use these passes in any way you want to see any show you want in 2020-2021. We will transfer your tickets to AnyTime Passes at no charge. (Seating will be general admission to accommodate social distancing.)
That means ticket holders have the following options:
Please contact us regarding your preferences by emailing us at [email protected] Or, call our box office at 423.267.8534 and leave a message. We are working from home, so due to anticipated volume, we ask for your patience as we respond to each and every one of you.
Thank you for your support of the CTC. We look forward to seeing you once again!

At the Chattanooga Theatre Centre, our mission is to enrich the cultural, intellectual, and emotional development of people of all ages through high-quality theatrical experiences and creating opportunities to engage in them. Since theatre brings people together for shared experiences, COVID-19, in some respects, has become the antithesis of theatre and in opposition to our core purpose. Know that our intention is to honor our commitments to our audiences and our artists, and that we look forward to resuming production as soon as it is responsible and ethical to do so, with a goal of opening by June 1, 2020.
Our new date to open “The Hollow” is June 4 for a two-week run through June 14, and our new date to open “Barefoot in the Park” is June 5 for a three-week run through June 21. To allow for continued social distancing, we will limit attendance at performances of “The Hollow” to 175 general admission tickets per show and “Barefoot in the Park” to 75 general admission tickets per show. We will honor all current ticket holders.
Be on the lookout for updates on our modified audition procedures for our July and August productions of “Cat in the Hat,” “Dreamgirls,” and “Mamma Mia.” We will post those procedures to our website and Facebook page when available.
Education Director Chuck Tuttle has been hard at work creating a wide range of programs for our Summer Academy, and we look forward to sharing the details soon.
I am so excited to let you know about our upcoming 2020-2021 season announcement during the week of April 13. We are planning a week of interactive fun as we reveal the season, so visit our Facebook page next week to be a part of the activities.
Lastly, we are in unprecedented times and though there is uncertainty, there are also the shared experiences and joy of theatre. We cannot wait until we can greet you at the door and start bringing you the high-quality theatrical productions you have come to expect from the Chattanooga Theatre Centre.

Our stage was empty this past weekend, but our hearts are full with the outpouring of support we have received from our theatre family this week. You are important to us, and we look forward to seeing you again when we get on the other side of this crisis.
In light of the developing news about the coronavirus and recommended guidelines from local, state, and national authorities, here’s the latest from the CTC:
Note that it is never an easy decision to postpone a production, because it impacts our entire community – you, our dedicated patrons, subscribers, and supporters, as well as our remarkable volunteers, creative team, and staff. However, with the rapidly changing public health recommendations, we are taking steps to protect everyone. Your well-being is our top priority.
While these challenging times call for bold choices, we trust that this current hiatus of live theatre at the CTC—and elsewhere—will only serve to bolster our love and appreciation for it.
So, stay tuned. We have a dedicated page on our website (TheatreCentre.com/coronavirus) which we will update whenever we have new information. You can also find updates on our Facebook pages.
Thank you for supporting us as we work to ensure that the first-class theatre you count on at the CTC continues to thrive in our great city. Be safe. We hope to see you soon.
– Your friends at the CTC
