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.
