Now In Production

Next Up For Auditions

After a harsh 2020 and 2021 season at the Colonial Center due to the ongoing pandemic, the difficult decision has been made to cancel the C.A.T.S. Community Theatre production of ELF: The Musical in December 2021. This decision was not made lightly and many options were explored prior to deciding the cancellation was necessary due to: the recent rise in COVID cases in Mecklenburg County and surrounding areas, the large cast size required for this production, the number of children who would need to be involved in the show who would not have been able to be fully-vaccinated prior to the start of the long rehearsal period required for this production, and the risks of COVID exposures and infections over a ten-week-long rehearsal and production period.

We would like to thank the Town of South Hill, J.A. Barker Construction Company, and Williams Enterprises for their willingness to sponsor ELF: The Musical, and we hope everyone will understand that we are putting the health and safety of our performers, volunteers, staff, audience members, and community, at the forefront in our decision-making process. 

Our 2022 season of events will be announced in the coming weeks and we are working hard to provide opportunities to get our C.A.T.S. performers back onstage safely in the coming year.

Refunds will be issued for all tickets which have already been purchased for ELF: The Musical. Please contact the Colonial Center to request a refund.
