Kiss Me, Kate

August 22-24, 2014 at the Wisconsin Union Theater

Four Seasons Theatre returns to the Wisconsin Union Theater after two full years of building renovation.  The Union Theater opened in 1939 with Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne’s touring Broadway production of The Taming of the Shrew.  How better to kick off the Union Theater’s 75th season than with the musical version of this classic story - Cole Porter’s Kiss Me, Kate!

Auditions will take place April 12 and 13 with advanced signup required.  Visit our Auditions page for information on how to sign up, available roles, and more.

Tickets will go on sale in June 2014 through the Wisconsin Union Theater Box Office.

Support Four Seasons Theatre

Please consider taking a moment to show your support for Four Seasons Theatre.

With an annual budget of $200,000 we’ve continued to produce high quality musical theatre and to support a variety of educational outreach programs in the greater Madison area.  Last season alone, over 7,500 community members benefitted from FST programming from direct participants to audience members.  We offer both paid performances (at the Wisconsin Union Theater, Bartell, The Playhouse, The Mitby) and many free outreach concerts, masterclasses, and lectures at venues including Capitol Lakes Retirement Community and UW Summer Music Clinic.  Among the direct beneficiaries of our programming were over 275 singers, actors, technical theatre artists, high school and college student interns, and musicians who participated in FST musical theatre productions and workshops.
