Madison's historic hall located on Lake Mendota right next to the Memorial Union's famed Terrace. The greats have been playing and speaking here since 1939.
In the 21st Century, the Union Theater continues to flourish with ideas and programs, energy and vision. That vision becomes a reality hundreds of times each year, when the theater is reserved for use or its doors open to a lively and inquiring audience.
Over and over the mission of the theater is validated by applause as an artist is acknowledged, or by a significant silence as an important idea or a profound experience is considered. The Union Theater remains warm, lively and inviting, while the magic of great performances and the ferment of ideas continue to fill it.
