Performances on the SCPA Virtual Stage are either live streamed or recorded exclusively for Schwartz Center audiences.  Performances that require registration will have a link to the online box office. Please note that due to licensing, many performances will not be available for viewing online after the original presentation.

The Schwartz Center for Performing Arts hopes to return to live performances in January 2021 while also continuing to provide a live stream for those who prefer to watch it virtually. This decision will be informed by the current health guidelines in place at the time, and in coordination with Emory University. Please sign up for our bi-monthly newsletter to be informed as plans are announced.
