Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty of when and how the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts (CCPA) will be allowed to re-open, the theater will not present a 2020-2021 Season. The CCPA is owned and operated by the City of Cerritos.
“The City is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for CCPA patrons, performers, volunteers and employees,” remarked Cerritos Mayor Naresh Solanki. “This was a difficult decision, but one that the City believes is in the best interests of everyone’s safety as we navigate through the pandemic.
“Since 1993, the CCPA has presented world-class performers and brought the joy of live entertainment and cultural enrichment to the community. The City looks forward to continuing this proud tradition as the theater plans presentations for the 2021-2022 Season and beyond.”
During the closure, the CCPA will undertake critical maintenance projects, including the installation of a new fire suppression system.
The CCPA is currently closed pursuant to a Safer at Work and in the Community for Control of COVID-19 Health Officer Order issued by the County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health Officer that prohibits mass gatherings. County officials have indicated that the re-opening of venues will be allowed in phases and with requirements for social distancing and disinfection protocols.
