PHOENIX — Tempe Center for the Arts last week announced its fall lineup and a return to live, in-person performances for the first time in over a year with added requirements.

The venue had been closed since March of last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Proof of full vaccination against the virus and a mask are required for entry to all ticketed events at Tempe Center for the Arts, according to the official website.

A mask must be worn at all times except while eating and drinking in authorized areas.

Eileen May, managing director for the venue, said in a press release the team at Tempe Center for the Arts has used the past year to think about what it means to connect the community.

“As we safely come together again, our focus is on exploring how art can heal, speak to, uncover and transform us,” she said in the release.

“We want to be an incubator for the local voice, lifting and elevating all diverse voices starting with the Tempe and Valley communities.”

Among the fall lineup are several new programs, including an emerging artists series focused on local talent and an interactive arts-meets-wellness series, as well as a festival that will promote a better understanding of the state’s Indigenous people.

The full fall lineup can be viewed online.

Tickets can be purchased online or by calling the box office at (480) 350-2822. Regular hours for the box office are Tuesdays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. with weekend hours based upon performances.

Those who purchased tickets to events prior to the new requirements being enacted will be issued a full refund upon request, according to the website.

We want to hear from you.
