Postponement of Activities at the Art Center

Out of an abundance of caution and to protect our patrons and volunteers, the Art Center and the Chamber of Commerce have agreed to postpone the mixer scheduled for March 19. We are also postponing opening “Will You Still Love Me in the Morning” which was scheduled to open March 20 for a three weekend run. The upcoming art exhibition will be postponed until a new date is set for opening “Will You Still Love Me in the Morning” and the exhibit on display will remain on display until then.  We will continue to follow guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and state and local health officials in setting future schedules for opening the play and for other activities at the Art Center.

Corona Virus Announcement

Dear Art Center Patrons and Volunteers, March 12, 2020

We are taking the threat of the Coronavirus seriously. As the  COVID-19 virus situation continues to evolve, we know it is on the minds of our patrons and volunteers and we are following recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as state and local health officials.

We are monitoring this situation daily, and will adjust business operations and policies as needed. We have not canceled any activities, but If any cancellations are made, we will post notices on our website/Facebook  and make every attempt to contact ticket holders.

We are taking preventive measures to keep the AE Building and Theatre clean and maintain a healthy environment. The buildings are cleaned daily, which includes using sanitizing solutions and spraying with sanitizer in high-touch areas, such as light switches, doors, counter-tops and bathrooms.

Finally, we want to remind everyone that if you are not feeling well please stay home. We will exchange tickets for another performance, call the Box Office 746-7606. Thank you for the opportunity to provide you quality entertainment. Rest assured we are doing and will continue to do everything we can to provide a healthy environment for our volunteers and patrons.

Sincerely, Dianna Haynes, Executive Director, Art Center of Citrus County

2019/2020 Season Plays Art Center Theatre

Art Center Theatre Presents: The Odd Couple Feb. 14-March 1

Unger and Madison are at it again! Florence Unger and Olive Madison, that is, in Neil Simon’s hilarious contemporary comic classic: the female version of The Odd Couple. Instead of the poker party that begins the original version, Ms. Madison has invited the girls over for an evening of Trivial Pursuit. The Pidgeon sisters have been replaced by the two Constanzuela brothers. But the hilarity remains the same.
