After a 15-month closure, the Historic Hemet Theatre is set to resume its popular Tribute Mania Concert Series beginning in June – just in time to celebrate the theatre’s 100th anniversary year!

This week, HHT announced the schedule for a 12-concert season stretching from June thru October.

The season starts on June 12th with a Tribute to Bruno Mars performed by Bruno and the Hooligans. This show was one of the most popular shows in 2019, but the Covid shutdown blocked their encore performance in June 2020. In fact, the entire 2021 season is filled with shows that sold out in their last appearance at HHT.

Over 1,000 tickets for 2020 shows remain outstanding and are eligible for exchange for the new season. Patrons holding tickets for last year’s shows need to exchange them at the ticket office during normal business hours, Monday thru Friday, 11 am to 5 pm.

This year, ticket prices have increased to $25, to help the theatre manage additional expenses for safety and sanitation protocols. The increase does not apply to exchanged tickets. The theatre will again offer special Season Tickets with the purchase of 4 or more concerts in the season. Season Ticket holders are given VIP seating 15 minutes before general admission.

Masks will be required in the lobby and aisles, but not required when seated. Tickets will be limited to 50% of capacity for at least the month of June.
