CMC is committed to live performance; the naturally ventilated
Hamlin Park space and modular nature of audience seating
(seating is not fixed and is now re-positioned for proper
distancing) provides for optimal observance of COVID safety
guidelines and protocols.Once the park district permits arts
partners and live theater use, our staff will finalize space
preparations/and implement state, city, and our own
guidelines for the safety, health of artists and audience.
We are working to and look forward to once again--hosting
and supporting live performance at the Hamlin Park Theater
Hope to see you here when that becomes possible.
