During this time communities as a whole are saddened by the many cancellations of shows that we looked forward to attending. However, the Vern Riffe and many other theaters are working with all of their customers to ensure they receive their refunds. If you have a question regarding your refund, please email info@vrcfa.com . Because multiple events were disrupted and hundreds of customers affected, it may take several weeks to receive your refund. In some cases, there is also the option to donate and that can be specified when you are contacted.

Many of us are turning to creating art at home to keep our minds and bodies moving. Creating art can boost self-esteem, creative thinking, and provide a sense of accomplishment. To find daily music inspiration posts you may follow us on Facebook (Vern Riffe Center For The Arts). During this extraordinary time, we don’t want to lose focus of our mission…

“The mission of the Center for the Arts is to provide a creative environment to the University and community which will promote teaching and learning of and enrichment in the visual, fine, and performing arts for the campus and region. At the same time, the Center will be a venue to the presentation of balanced, comprehensive, and multi-cultural program of arts, education, and community events.”

Now because of the current global pandemic caused by COVID-19, keeping attendants indoors, many theaters and museums are offering virtual tours. Through these virtual tours attendants can “walk through” museums or watch live streams of the scenery and entertainment. Our local Southern Ohio Museum just started their own virtual tours on March 31st and they have been sharing these tours on their social media platforms. To find out if there is a museum, theater, zoo, or park in your local area participating in virtual tours just give them a call or email to visit them from home.

The 20-21 season is going to be a year of celebration, as it is our 25th anniversary! We’re continuing our work, albeit remotely, on the next season and are so excited for our audience to experience these shows.
