Important announcement about our season ...
With the recent rise in COVID cases in Hamilton County and elsewhere, along with the highly contagious nature of new variants, the Board of Trustees and general & artistic director of the Arts Center have made the difficult decision to postpone the remainder of our 2021 Weekend Series to 2022. We make this decision in the interest of the health and safety of our members, staff, performers, volunteers, and others, with the unfortunate realization that we cannot fully protect our audiences or staff from this virus.
This decision means that the Arts Center will be postponing the following events to spring 2022:
"Alex, Ryan & Friends: A Musical Celebration", scheduled for Sept. 25
as part of the Great Adirondack Moose Festival
"Rock the Arts Center: Spring Street", scheduled for Oct. 2
"Forever Wild", scheduled for Oct. 8 & 9
Any tickets already purchased for any of these events will be fully refunded.
It was also decided that the Arts Center will remain open only through Sunday, Sept. 26, rather than Oct. 10, the original closing date for the 2021 season. that means that those who wish to experience our currently gallery exhibits will need to do so by Sept. 26.
The Board and staff of the Arts Center are gratified by our incredible accomplishments of this season, including our concerts, our Summer Theatre Festival, and our gallery exhibits, and we certainly feel we ended on a "high note" by hosting the Seagle Festival show "There's No Business Like Show Business." We feel that we created safe performance spaces with both our indoor events and outdoor concerts in our tented ALCA-Seltzer Space throughout the summer. We are no longer confident of maintaining that level of safety going forward.
We look forward to resuming our popular ALCA-Seltzer Series during our off-season with some brand-new, fun virtual content, and we encourage our supporters and patrons to watch for news of our exciting 2022 season of LIVE programming, with concerts, theatre, visual arts, and workshops -- all with the COVID-19 pandemic hopefully a distant speck in our rear-view.
Thanks again to all of you who support us and the Arts and helped make our 2021 season a success!

The Arts Center has been providing visual and performing arts, arts education, workshops, and other programs to the residents and visitors of the Adirondack Park since 1967! We wouldn’t be able to do any of it without the generous support of our communities. We have been virtual, but we look forward to our return to live programming in June 2021!
