Following the instructions of city, state and federal officials, the Capitol Civic Centre has suspended all shows and events effective immediately. The well-being of patrons, performers, volunteers and employees is our highest priority.
The length of this closure has not been definitively determined. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) announcement on March 16 for an eight-week closure for assembly spaces is one of our current guides, as is the Wisconsin Department of Health Services March 17 order that there be no assemblies of more than 10 people for the duration of the public health crisis. The Capitol will update our status and timelines as new information is received.
The Capitol will continue to strive to reschedule performances impacted by this operational interruption.
General information about whether a show is being rescheduled or cancelled, once details are determined, will be found on our website, cccshows.org, with updates found on our Facebook page, as well. In all instances, whether a show is rescheduled or cancelled due to this public health closure, the Capitol box office will be in touch (via email or phone) with ticket-purchasers to present the options available for each transaction.
The Capitol’s box office and lobby are currently closed. However, box office staff will be available by phone or email Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Call 920-683-2184 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. During this time service fees for telephone transactions will be waived. New box office transactions will also be handled online at cccshows.org.
The Capitol Civic Centre is a nonprofit charitable organization. In a normal year one-third of the Capitol’s operating budget is philanthropic-based. Maintaining and increasing this support during this closure is critical. For more information on how to support the Capitol during this unprecedented situation, please contact Executive Director Matt Schliesman at email@example.com or at 920-686-6420.

Our curtain is down for the time-being. We’re all facing challenges, many of these being unprecedented. However, there is solace in the fact that we are in good company in doing what is necessary for the public good.
We all very much need each other on the same page right now. Situations like this can strengthen a community. May this be so here.
We ask for your patience concerning the Capitol’s normal routine. We will keep you notified of changes in show dates here as well as on our website. Feel free to call the Box Office for specific updates as well, 920-683-2184.
In closing, be safe. Be well. Be kind. We extend hopeful wishes for each of you, for our community, and for a quick end to this extended episode of The Twilight Zone we have all been cast in.

Patrons and friends,
The Capitol Civic Centre is committed to the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, patrons, and performers. We are aware that the COVID-19 situation is very fluid, and we are closely monitoring CDC and Wisconsin Department of Health Services guidelines.
We will follow recommendations made by local, state or federal health officials, including cancelling performances, should that become necessary. If such a recommendation occurs, we will notify all ticket buyers by email or phone, and provide updates at cccshows.org and our Facebook page.
In the meantime, we are taking precautions throughout the facilities to provide sanitizing and disinfecting solutions. We encourage you to join our staff and volunteers in adhering to the guidelines provided by the Center for Disease Control, as follows:
- Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care;
- Cover your coughs and sneezes with your elbow or a tissue;
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing;
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands;
- Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects daily.
If you have any questions about a specific performance, please contact the Capitol Civic Centre Box Office at 920-683-2184, within seven days of the performance. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
