Omnova Series

The Omnova Theater has earned a name as one of the best intimate live-performance venues in our area, hosting varied local, regional and even national talent in its 85 seat home. Audiences will hear everything from Mississippi Delta blues, country, bluegrass, classical, jazz and world music to professional storytellers spinning magic with the spoken word.
Open mic shows provide a stage for both established and emerging artists. With such a wonderful array of talent in our area, these are, indeed, some of our most popular shows.
Tickets for all performance are available in advance and at the door--if available. With limited seating in this intimate acoustic space, it's often wise to get your tickets early to assure seating.


Concert and Artists Series

This series of live performances continues to set the standard for quality, affordable artistic programming in the area.  All productions are performed by regional, national or international artists and touring companies. Most performances take place in Rent Auditorium on the campus of Mississippi University for Women.  Tickets may be purchased online, at our office within the Rosenzweig, or at the door the night of the event.  In addition, courtesy tickes are included in some levels of CAC membership.

YPAS (Young People's Artist Series)

YPAS was developed by the CAC over 25 years ago to provide live performance programs for pre-school, elementary and middle school children in the Golden Triangle and surrounding area.  Musicals, puppetry, dance and various forms of live music have been presented to thousands of students who might not otherwise have this opportunity.  The Arts Council provides curriculum-education support through study guides for each performance.

The Big Read

We and our project partners are excited to invite our community to join in "The Big Read" kicking off this month and continuing into March.   Our focus book, Thornton Wilder's "The Bridge of San Luis Rey" is a great American classic
which won Wilder his first  Pulitzer Prize in 1928.   Since it's first printing in 1927, the book has NEVER been out of print!   The story is well written, immersing us into Peruvian culture and creating fascinating character studies--all in a fairly short read.
For more information follow this link
"The Big Read" is a grant program established by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA)
in 2006 in response to studies reflecting the sad rapid decline of reading in America.   
The program was developed to provide organizations with the means to develop community
wide reading programs.   Through the focus on one book, we can encourage community
reading, discussion and participation amongst diverse audiences.  From this we can all
come together to learn about the worlds encompassed in one story, and hopefully encourage
a renewed interest in reading.
