Celebrating 10 years of musical theatre in Madison!

Our 10th season of professional musical theatre in Madison includes productions at Overture Center and Wisconsin Union Theater, a new series of musical theatre events at the Fredric March Play Circle Theater, and our continued commitment to quality outreach programs for retirement communities, civic organizations, and high schools across the greater Madison area.

A Grand Night for Singing

Thursday, March 5 through Sunday, March 8, 2015 at Promenade Hall at Overture

There is no songwriting team in the Broadway pantheon more thoroughly American than the team of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II. A GRAND NIGHT FOR SINGING shares some of the best-loved R&H tunes in re-imagined arrangements alongside little-known gems from the R&H catalogue. From the opening strains of “The Carousel Waltz” to the jazziest “Kansas City” you’ve ever heard, you’ll delight in these tunes from the team that engineered the modern American musical.

Tickets available through the Overture Center Box Office at (608) 258-4141, in person, or online.

Four Seasons earns "Best of 2014" Honors

"Four Seasons chose Cole Porter's colorful, tuneful 1948 hit to open the Wisconsin Union Theater after an extensive renovation. With a lively performance featuring some of Madison's best singers and dancers, KISS ME, KATE succeeded on many levels, honoring the theater's past and promising great performances in its future."

From Madison's Best of 2014, The Capital Times

"I only saw one show from Four Seasons Theatre this year, but based on their production of Stephen Sondheim's ASSASSINS, we should all plan on seeing many, many more in 2015 and beyond. Directed by Jessica Lanius, the story of misguided social misfits who channel their rage and disppointment into murdering presidents was a distrubing as it was musically and visually spectacular."

From Best of Arts 2014, The Isthmus

 

Stephen Sondheim's ASSASSINS

 December 5-14, 2014 at The Playhouse at Overture

We began our 10th anniversary season with a show from the modern master of musical theatre, Stephen Sondheim. In Assassins, Sondheim and book writer John Weidman create a murderous carnival game, parading across the stage misfits and malcontents who have attempted to assassinate a President.
