The Wisconsin Union Directorate Performing Arts Committee plans and promotes events for the historic Wisconsin Union Theater stage, ranging from modern dance and classical concerts, to travel adventure films and Broadway musicals. Performing Arts Committee programs a variety of events to provide a diverse and cultural experience for students, faculty, alumni, and the Madison area community. The Performing Arts Committee members also get a unique opportunity to work directly with the artists throughout the booking process and on the day of show.

Through the Concert Series, Jazz Series, World Stage Series, and special events, our committee selects a season that offers artistic integrity, diversity, and campus outreach and involvement between the performers and students.

All free events sponsored by WUD Performing Arts Committee are intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff, and Union members and guests.

Check out the artists we have coming this season on our Season Highlights playlist!
