Director’s Note

By Richard Hess

Every day, 316 people are shot in the United States (source: BradyUnited.org). Among those: 

  • 106 people are shot and killed 
  • 210 survive gunshot injuries 
  • 95 are intentionally shot by someone else and survive 
  • 39 are murdered 
  • 64 die from gun suicide 

Every year, 115,551 people are shot. Among those: 

  • 38,826 people die from gun violence 
  • 14,062 are murdered 
  • 76,725 people survive gunshot injuries 
  • 34,566 are intentionally shot by someone else and survive 
  • 23,437 die from gun suicide 

Source: BradyUnited.org

We tell this story, this difficult American story, to confront a difficult truth. When gun violence does not touch our lives, we do not see the impact. But the impact is real, and it is insidious. We think it does not touch us, but it does. Thank you for joining us to sit with us and feel the impact. Some theatre is not easy, but we hope it is rewarding.

So many stories. For 32 years I have been telling stories/making theatre with students at CCM. So many students. I have changed. The world has changed. The students have changed. I started directing and teaching professionally in 1983. It seems forever ago. 

What hasn’t changed, is my love for this art form, my love of actors and designers and technicians and brave storytellers everywhere. Every show I’ve ever done at CCM is my favorite show. Thank you all. Please enjoy my new favorite show: The Burials. I hope it makes you feel.

With love and gratitude and support,
-Richard Hess

Tax Credit

If you find that you cannot attend your performance, your tickets may be donated for tax credit as a charitable contribution. Simply notify the Box Office prior to the performance to release your seats, and give your name and address. A tax donation receipt will be mailed to you.


COVID Careful

UC has updated its indoor masking policy to align with the CDC's recommendations for masking. Beginning on Saturday, March 12, all masking restrictions will be eliminated in all CCM spaces, so long as rates of hospitalization and transmissibility remain in the low-to-medium zones. This means masking will no longer be required in classrooms, rehearsals, performances, etc. for everyone — students, faculty, staff, campus visitors and audience members. Members of our community who prefer to continue to wear a mask when indoors or in close proximity with others for personal safety should continue to do so. Please continue to be sensitive and respectful to the needs of others as we work through this transition. CCM performance venues are currently reduced to 50% capacity. Additional measures may be in place as conditions develop based on guidance from the CDC and UC's physician-led COVID response team. Visit the UC Public Health website and CCM's COVID-19 website for additional information and updates.


Lost and Found

If you have lost an item, contact lost and found at 513-556-9413.


House Policies

The House Manager has been instructed to minimize the disturbance to patrons already seated when accommodating latecomers. The director and producer of each production select times that are least likely to interrupt the performance, and latecomers will be seated only during these times. Latecomers who miss these opportunities will not be admitted until intermission. Children under the age of 6 will not be admitted.


Cameras, Phones and Recording Devices

The video or audio recording of performances is prohibited.

The use of cameras, with or without flashes, recording devices, cellular phones and other electronic devices inside the theater is prohibited. Please leave them with the House Manager.


Smoking and Refreshments

Smoking and refreshments are not permitted in the theater. Effective May 1, 2017, smoking and tobacco use (including chewing tobacco and electronic cigarettes) shall be prohibited by students, staff, faculty, visitors, vendors and contractors at all times in or on University of Cincinnati properties, including events on university property during non-school hours. This includes all shelters, indoor and outdoor theaters and athletic facilities, bridges, walkways, sidewalks, residence halls, parking lots, and street parking and garages owned by the university.


Hearing Enhancement

Telex listening devices are available for checkout during performances in both Patricia Corbett Theater and Corbett Auditorium. Please inquire at the Box Office.


Wheelchair Seating

Wheelchair seating is available in both Corbett Auditorium and Patricia Corbett Theater. Seating is limited, so reservations should be made with the Box Office when ordering tickets. These seats are subject to availability.


Group Sales

The Box Office can accommodate groups for major productions and concerts. Preview and benefit performances are also available for some productions. For more information, call the CCM Box Office at 513-556-4183.
