Wisconsin Union Theater Season Shows

The Wisconsin Union Theater is home to hundreds of events and performances each year. In addition to hosting registered student org events, the Wisconsin Union Theater proudly presents the annual Season. The special Season performances are hand-selected by the Wisconsin Union Directorate Performing Arts Committee over the course of the year. The student programmers are especially in tune with current musical trends and curate a truly unforgettable experience.

We invite you to browse the upcoming events and performances. Please be aware that tickets for most of the 2017-2018 Season go on sale August 24, 2017. This will be noted on all events where applicable.
