Ticketing Information for the 2021-2022 Season

The Department of Theatre Arts will not be offering season ticket packages this year out of caution of the university having to shut down due to COVID-19.  Due to a technical issue with our new online ticketing system (AudienceView), patrons will not be able to purchase tickets online for Severe Clear or Love/Sick.  Tickets may be purchase via the phone (608-785-6696) or in person (Center for the Arts Box Office) beginning the Monday prior to opening night for each production.


Angels in AmericaWriting in the Major is a programmatic and developmental approach to advancing writing and learning. Since writing, like other complex skills, develops over a long period of time, it is important to create a program that extends across the entire undergraduate experience. Department-based programs give special attention to students' capacities in formal writing and writing-to-learn. By acting collectively--with shared goals, expectations, criteria, and standards--instructors can have a potent, cumulative effect on students' writing and learning.

Students who complete the requirements for a major with an approved writing-in-the-major program also satisfy the university Writing Emphasis requirement. Departments work through a collaborative, developmental process before submitting an official proposal form.

The Department of Theatre Arts has been an active participant in the Writing in the Major program, focusing on the writing element in several upper level theatre courses.  For more information, visit Theatre Writing in the Major Proposal.

"Among the many seasons in my journey as an actor, my time spent with UWL Theatre was not only the most special, but the most important. The program offered me incredible opportunities and instilled in me a profound belief in myself as a young artist. It was there that I was fostered by my first theatrical family, and I am forever grateful."
