Young Auditorium Fall 2020 - Digital Programming

Live interactive concerts, premium Broadway content, and FREE weekly performances!

Young Auditorium has been closely monitoring guidelines from the CDC, state, and university in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, and while the difficult decision has been made to temporarily postpone live, in-person events, the area’s premiere theatre arts facility has put together an impressive fall season of digital theatre offerings. With live interactive concerts, premium Broadway content, and FREE weekly performances, Young Auditorium is committed to providing a wide array of virtual entertainment options to help serve the campus and community in the coming months.

 The safety of our staff, volunteers, and patrons is of paramount importance at Young Auditorium, and it is a driving factor in our decision to move towards a digital fall schedule. While nothing can replace the experience of being in the theatre for a live performance, it is my sincere hope that these premium virtual offerings will keep our patrons and community members engaged in the arts until is once again safe to reopen our doors.     ~Shannon Dozoryst, Young Auditorium Director

 With a wide variety of entertainment offerings available, arts lovers will have no shortage of opportunities to view amazing concerts, theatrical presentations, and interactive performances.
