PANDEMONIUM 2021: THE BREAK OF DAWN

September 18, 2021

7:00-midnight, Cleveland Public Theatre campus
All guests, volunteers, artists, and staff at Pandemonium are required to be VACCINATED against COVID-19.

We’re thrilled you want to come to PANDEMONIUM 2021! Online ticketing has closed, but you’ll still be able to buy tickets at the door. Doors open at 6:45, and you’re welcome to line up early and enjoy our fabulous storefront performers.

Pandemonium transforms the CPT campus into a labyrinth of theatre, dance, visual art, and performance in every corner. Tickets are all-inclusive, featuring fabulous local food, free valet, and complimentary drinks served all night long. A feast for the eyes, mind, appetite, and imagination—Pandemonium proceeds benefit CPT’s groundbreaking artistic work and life-changing education programs.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Pandemonium 2020 was adapted into Awakenings: A Virtual Gala, an experience that took guests inside the labyrinth—from the comfort of their own homes. With the generosity of CPT’s 2020 PAN Award Honoree Micki Byrnes, Awakenings: A Virtual Gala premiered a one-hour special on WKYC Channel 3, followed by a virtual After-Party on Zoom.

You may be wondering how COVID-19 is impacting this year’s event. The majority of THE PARTY WILL TAKE PLACE OUTSIDE: at this time, 80% of performances and 100% of food and beverage service are planned for outdoors… and under tent canopies so that we can celebrate rain or shine!

Tickets: $180 ($100 is tax deductible)
