About this organization






Overture Center's mission is to support and elevate our community’s creative culture, economy and quality of life through the arts.


The Overture Center hosted hundreds of ticketed events with our box office selling more than 282,500 tickets. The Overture Center presented a wide variety of artistic offerings that patrons would not otherwise have the opportunity to experience in Madison, ranging from up-and-coming dance companies to children's theater performances to nationally touring Broadway hits. In fulfilling its mission of access to the arts, the Overture Center strives to keep ticket prices affordable. The average top ticket price for non-Broadway performances was under $40. Additionally, the Overture Center subsidizes and supports the work of ten local, nonprofit resident arts companies who sold over 103,000 tickets to their performances. The Overture Center fulfills the core of its mission through fourteen community engagement and education programs. As a result of these programs last year, over 230,000 people saw a free performance or visual exhibit. The programs included Overture Onstage that attracted more than 25,000 elementary and high school students to daytime performances during the school year and Kids in the Rotunda that attracted approximately 32,000 children and parents to free performances. Various unique spaces within the Overture Center are available for rent to the public to hold special events and meetings. The Overture Center's nature as a community arts center provides for the kind of experience unavailable at other event venues.
