What is the Covey Center?

The Covey Center for the Arts is primarily a rental facility. We host over 200 events a year – most of which are produced and performed by the community. In addition to being a rental facility, The Covey Center produces Covey Center Special Events, the Brinton Theatre Series, and offers community dance classes. Visit our website regularly to find out what and who is coming next. If you’re interested in renting the facility, click here to visit our rental information page.

Can I exchange or refund my tickets?

All sales are final and we cannot offer refunds. However, we will happily exchange your tickets during normal operating hours (M-F, 10:00AM - 6:00PM). Exchanges may be made in person at the box office window, and cost $3 per ticket. Tickets must be presented at the time of exchange in order to obtain your new tickets. 

Why won't it let me purchase tickets online?

Online ticketing shuts down one hour prior to each show. This does not mean the show is sold out! It is usually likely that you can still purchase tickets in person at the Box Office. However, this is not guaranteed as it depends on the show.



Where should I park?

Parking for the Covey Center can be accessed from 100 South. There are two entrances into the building from the South side. You can also park on Center Street to access the front entrance. Please note the city's parking restrictions on these spaces.



How do I volunteer at the Covey Center?

We are always looking for community volunteers to usher for our performances. We even have an rewards system that earns you tickets the more you usher. To learn more about the requirements and to sign up, please visit our volunteer page. 

How do I audition for a show?

Every year, we produce five different shows for the Brinton Black Box Theatre, and we are always looking for talented actors. If you would like to audition, please regularly check our auditions pageto see what we have coming up.




Times, dates, casting, repertoire, and programs are subject to change without notice. Latecomers will be seated at an appropriate break in the performance (which may be intermission). Due to the placement of the entrance in the Brinton Theatre, there is no late seating. Nice dress is encouraged but not required.
