About the Wisconsin Union Theater:
The Wisconsin Union Theater’s mission is to present, promote, and cultivate a lifelong appreciation
of the performing arts, especially among University of Wisconsin – Madison students. The
Wisconsin Union Theater (WUT) consists of two performance venues and one rehearsal/dance
studio. Performance spaces include Shannon Hall (capacity 1165), Play Circle Theater (Cap 184
seated and 300 open) and the Festival Room, a large rehearsal space/dance studio. All spaces have
fully sprung stage floors, state of the art sound, and light systems.
Campus Arts Ticketing (CAT) is a service provided by the Wisconsin Union Theater for the campus
by selling tickets in two permanent and up to five satellite locations. Tickets in subscriptions are
sold for the Wisconsin Union Theater, Mead Witter School of Music, University Theatre, University
Opera, UW Dance as well as the Wisconsin Film Festival and Madison Early Music Festival and
community organizations. In total, CAT annually distributes approximately 100,000 tickets.
The Wisconsin Union Theater, through a student-led committee, presents a season of up to 40
events including music, touring dance, theater, comedy, spoken word, annual festivals, and a student
playwriting competition. Additionally, the Union Theater hosts numerous campus events including
graduations, lectures, conferences, as well as performances by university departments, registered
student organizations, and community organizations.
The Wisconsin Union Theater is committed to social justice and is on a path towards creating an
equitable, diverse, and inclusive place for the staff, crew, and students who work in the WUT and for
the performers, artists, and audience members who engage with the WUT through our
programming, events, and activities. Our goal is to use social justice as the lens through which we
make decisions, establish workplace norms, design activities and outcomes, and to inform how best
to meet the needs and interests of our community. The Wisconsin Union Theater staff is expected to
participate in EDI professional development and to acknowledge this work is an ongoing practice
that will evolve as we learn, grow, and respond to important issues that affect our world.
