With a line-up that features world-class artists in music, dance, comedy, top-touring Broadway hits and more, the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts continues its tradition of offering a diverse season with something for everyone.

"We're looking forward to welcoming everyone back to the Center, to what we're calling our season of hope. It's been a challenging time for all, and we will be excited to be able to Raise the Curtain once again and share the joy and inspiration that comes from experiencing a live performance with our community," says Judith Mitchell, Kravis Center CEO. A message from Mitchell on the new season and the Center's new and latest health and safety procedures can be accessed directly at kravis.org/ceo.

"As always, we've secured a line-up of performances that appeal to people of all ages, a line-up that was booked more than a year in advance of the pandemic," says Lee Bell, Kravis Center Senior Director of Programming. "And although we've had some cancelations from tours that have chosen not to perform at this time our season continues to evolve. We're confident that our audiences will be entertained by our line-up of artists and performances."
