Assistant Director for Development & Outreach
We've had an exciting run of sold-out shows this spring! Gaelic Storm (February 17), Béla Fleck and the Flecktones (March 1) and Gabriel Iglesias (March 3) all brought capacity crowds to the theater. Sara Bareilles's concert sold-out in 24 hours, mostly to UW-Madison students.
Makings sure that UW Madison students have access to high demand shows is an important priority at the theater. We are very committed to keeping student tickets at an affordable price, and the Theater Program Endowment is an essential tool in helping us keep that promise. The endowment subsidizes the difference between a low-cost student priced ticket and the Union Member/UW Madison Faculty and Staff price ticket.
For these three sold-out shows, we sold 1554 student tickets!
The Theater Program Endowment grows each year because many dedicated Theater Season patrons make a voluntary contribution with their season ticket order. This is a very appreciated boost that is critical to meeting our mission to make everything we do accessible and affordable for students.
