Wisconsin Union Theater announces 2019-2020 season

The Wisconsin Union Theater is pleased to announce the 2019-2020 season. Along with the 100th anniversary of the venerable Concert Series, the season will include a Women of the World series, fantastic new artists as well as great established ones, a Valentine’s Day dance and wonderful collaborations.

Tickets will be available April 26 at 10 a.m. Subscriptions for the Concert Series and the opportunity to be among the first to buy tickets to the gala concert by Renée Fleming are still available.
