Special Events: CGOA charges higher ticket prices for our musical theater productions and concerts with special guest artists. Sponsors who normally receive complimentary tickets for a program will be given tickets for one performance. Tickets TBD.

Special event programming for 2022-23 includes concerts with Sam Baker (March) and Stages production of Little Shop of Horrors (May). Dates and events subject to change.
