Effective immediately, the Union County Performing Arts Center will be closed so that the historic Mainstage can undergo necessary renovations and maintenance.  This closure impacts all spaces, including the Hamilton Stage.

While there is never a good time to have our stages silent, the slowdown caused by the pandemic unfortunately does provide this window.  We regret any inconvenience this may cause, and stand proud of the programming we have been able to provide this past year, even during the most challenging of times.  It is the intention of the UCPAC to reopen on September 1, 2021.

Those with tickets to affected events will be contacted, and receive reimbursement.

We look forward to the day when we can open our doors to the public with a refreshed interior. Please keep in touch!  We will announce our plans as we move forward.


Built in 1928, the historic Union County Performing Arts Center is rich in history and culture. Our timeless theater may have tremendous historical significance, but it has also made a huge impact in the modern day as well. From providing youth programming to supporting socially conscious movements, everything we do here at the UCPAC we do with the intention of fostering a sense of creativity and pride in the great City of Rahway and throughout all of Union County.
