Celebrating 10 Years of musical theatre in Madison!
For 10 years, Four Seasons Theatre has consistently produced high-quality musical theatre in Madison. In our last season alone, we reached more than 7500 community members through our outreach concerts and ticketed performances and we employed 275 local performers, musicians, designers, and technicians. This summer, Kiss Me, Kate, our 33rd production, will reopen the Wisconsin Union Theater and kick off their 75th anniversary season.
Four Seasons Theatre was featured in the Wisconsin State Journal in "With 'Kiss Me, Kate' Madison continues its love affair with musical theater." Read the full article.
Our 10th season will include 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.

With an annual budget of $225,000 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.
