Due to the recent COVID 19 health crisis, the Compass Performances Arts Center has temporarily shut its doors in complete compliance with NYS mandates for non-essential businesses. CPAC looks to reschedule productions in September 2020. Please revisit this page and CPAC's Facebook Page for more details.

Upcoming Shows and Events
Since March 2020, there has been a moratorium on theaters & performing arts spaces throughout New York State. Many revenues have decided to wait out the shut-down with plans to reopen in March 2021. As it stands, Governor Cuomo has not given any clear indication when any of these venues can reopen, has not provided any guidelines into the safe opening of these venue, or has engaged in any dialog into reasons why theaters cannot resume operations.
Under the current shut-down, smaller theater companies and performance venues are financially hurting due to lack of generating revenues. They need Governor Cuomo, Lieutenant Governor Hochul, and US Senator Schumer to understand that they are essential to the community. They are essential because they provide jobs, are an economic engine for community businesses, and give back to the community through culturally diverse programming. They even provide distractions to those who are suffering from depression, anxiety, isolation and other mental issues people are now facing in these times of global pandemic, political & social crisis, and uncertain economic futures.
They need an ear regarding this. They need a outline for how small performance space companies can reopen or have the option to reopen. They need your voice in getting our elected officials to listen to the community.
