GHCT changes its times for the 2018-19 season
Greater Hamilton Civic Theatre's Board of Trustees recently approved new times for its shows on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. Performances will now begin at 7:30 p.m. — a change from previous years. This is to allow patrons and performers to get out a bit earlier following shows at Parrish Auditorium. Sunday matinees will still be at 2 p.m. These show times apply to our entire 2018-19 season, including "Assassins" at the Fitton Center for Creative Arts and "The Wedding Singer," "My Son Pinocchio," "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" and "Crimes of the Heart." Please let your friends who are patrons know of this change.
For its 2018-19 season, Civic is celebrating 60 years of excellent community theater performances in Hamilton.

We may include them on our website or in displays throughout the season.
