Performing Arts


Central Piedmont Community College is a cultural resource for Mecklenburg County. For 40 years, the College has presented the finest music and theatre to the community, while offering professional development and educational opportunities to students pursuing performing arts careers.

Each year, the CPCC Performing Arts Program presents four CPCC Theatre productions from September through April; two Opera Theatre productions in November and April; and five Summer Theatre productions in June and July. Performances are presented in the award-winning Dale F. Halton Theater and Pease Auditorium.
