The Hilliard Civic & Cultural Arts Center

Hilliard Civic & Cultural Arts Center

Our Home

Since its opening in 2016, the Hilliard Civic & Cultural Arts Center has served as our home base.  Nestled in Old Hilliard, the HCCAC features a 160 seat black box theatre, an art gallery, meeting and studio space and a scene shop. The building also serves as a canvas for the city’s burgeoning public art program with one mural installed and another in the final planning stages. 

Serving as a home for our theatrical season, gallery space for a rotating schedule of local artists and a home for our popular Summer Concert Series, the facility has allowed for a significant expansion of our mission to enhance the cultural and economic vitality of the Hilliard community by inspiring, enlivening and educating our community through the arts.  

The facility is also available for rent and can accommodate a variety of community needs. Click here to learn more.

New COVID Safety Protocols

As new cases (including an increased number of “breakthrough” cases with vaccinated individuals) and hospitalizations caused by COVID19 are once again on the rise, Hilliard Arts Council is instituting new safety driven policies designed to increase safety and reduce virus spread for its staff, volunteers, activity participants and patrons. Specific requirements for visitors to the Hilliard Civic and Cultural Arts Center as well as for individuals participating in Hilliard Arts Council activities (i.e. choirs, theatrical productions) are being implemented.  These policy changes are effective immediately and will remain in effect until further notice.

The safety of our volunteers, our staff and of course our audience are highly important to us.  We are following guidance from the CDC, local health authorities as well as advice from performing arts organizations in the area to be able to continue to produce art in the community while providing a COVID-safe experience for all. We will continue to monitor the COVID situation, making further adjustments to these policies as needed.


  • All volunteers, staff members, audience members and guests entering the Hilliard Civic and Cultural Arts Center must be able to show a COVID vaccination record or a negative test result less than 72 hours old to enter the facility.  
  • All participants (as defined above) are required to wear a mask at all times while in the facility.  Masks may only be removed by performers while on stage for a performance or dress rehearsal

HAC Activities

  • All participants in HAC activities must be COVID vaccinated (if eligible).  This includes the entire production companies for theatrical productions and all singers, directors, and musicians prior to first rehearsal.
  • All participants (as defined above) are required to wear a mask at all times during rehearsals and performances.  Masks can only be removed when the participant is on stage for a performance or dress rehearsal.


  • Children under the age of 5 are exempt from the vaccination requirements. Children 5  through 11 are encouraged to begin the vaccination process ASAP and will require proof of vaccination in order to participate in HAC activities beginning January 1, 2022.
