Oklahoma City Community College’s Visual and Performing Arts Center (OCCC VPAC) has announced its Spring 2021 season, after almost a full year without traditional in-person events due to COVID-19. The new season debuts amid record-breaking cases of COVID-19 in Oklahoma, so the season has been built to be flexible based on the safety and security of the artists and patrons.
“Life without the arts has been devastating for patrons and performers alike,â€ said OCCC’s Cultural Programs Director Lemuel Bardeguez. “We need institutions like the VPAC and others in our market to bring that spark of creativity to our lives. It’s very important that we’re back, and we’re rooting for other performing arts centers in our community to safely return as soon as possible, too.â€
The OCCC VPAC’s 1,000+ seat theater will be limited to just 250 patrons to ensure social distancing, and a mask mandate will be in effect for all staff and guests. Season subscriptions include both in-person and live online performances, and even some on-demand opportunities so guests can watch at their leisure. As an added benefit, subscribers will also receive a three-month subscription to Broadway HD, a streaming service that allows patrons to watch Broadway musicals and plays online. This season’s performances can be found at tickets.occc.edu. Season subscriptions are just $150 per person, and individual ticket purchases are also available.
“In an era of lost seasons due to COVID-19, we are grateful, yet again, to have found ours,â€ said Bardeguez.
The Visual and Performing Arts Center is a 1,049-seat, state-of-the-art theater space located on the campus of Oklahoma City Community College. Its mission, fulfilled since 2014, is to increase access to world-class cultural programs and performances for underserved populations.
