Performing Arts Series Update

Hits from Broadway, the greatest songs of Motown, and Spanish dance are what’s in store for the 2021 Indiana State University Performing Arts Series. Join us for “Nights Under the Lights” as we usher in our new season of family friendly entertainment sponsored by the Terre Haute Savings Bank.

Due to these unprecedented times, our 2020-2021 season looks a little different this year. After careful consideration, the difficult decision has been made to postpone the Fall 2020 ISU Performing Arts Series performances due to the pandemic. The health and safety of our University community and the Wabash Valley community is our top priority. We have rescheduled the Fall 2020 shows to the Fall of 2021. Rescheduling these shows will allow us to provide the quality experience our patrons deserve in a safer environment.

Our rescheduled dates are as follows: The Passing Zone- September 20, 2021; Reza, Edge of Illusion- October 25, 2021; and Christmas in Killarny- December 7, 2021.

We look forward to hosting you for the currently scheduled dates of the remainder of our season beginning February 9th with The Magic of Motown! Top songs from Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, The Supremes, The Four Tops, Martha Reeves, and The Jackson 5 are all a part of the fun evening The Magic of Motown is sure to bring! Get ready for all the hits, glittering costumes, dazzling dance routines and outstanding musicianship in this breathtaking live concert spectacular.

Following the Magic of Motown, we invite Broadway’s greatest hits to Tilson’s stage with Broadway Tonite Live on March 16th. The production takes you through a wide variety of Broadway classics both old and new: Oklahoma, Anything Goes, West Side Story, Jersey Boys, Les Miserables, Beautiful, A Chorus Line, Phantom Of The Opera, Rent, Wicked, Pajama Game and more! The show will be perfect for fans of Broadway or those looking to experience it for the first time.

Our season will conclude on April 5th with traditional Spanish dance: Flamenco Vivo Carlotta Santana. Based out of New York, the studio promotes flamenco as a living art form and vital part of Spanish heritage. They believe that the universal spirit of flamenco – with diverse influences from Arab, Jewish, Gypsy, Spanish, and Latin American cultures – gives this art form a unique power to build bridges between people.

All performances are in Tilson Auditorium and begin at 7:30 p.m. For ticket holders there will be a free pre-event activity before each show at 6:30 in the Heritage Ballroom, featuring entertainment related to the show and refreshments.
