After a 2-year reinvestment project that restored and renovated the Wisconsin Union Theater, we are pleased to be open again! The west wing of Memorial Union now includes the following spaces that support performing arts events:
The following groups can request theater space for an event:
Groups that do not fit one of these categories must be sponsored by a university department. A sponsorship letter signed by a Dean, Provost, or Chancellor is required. See Event Planners Handbook for more details.
AVAILABILITY & BOOKING
All requests to use the theater must be submitted using our on-line form. It is available on the Union website at: http://www.union.wisc.edu/theaterrequest/.
You will be contacted by union staff shortly after submitting the form. Groups may request specific dates or may request a date range. Events that have flexible date options are more likely to be accommodated.
Submitting a request does not guarantee space in the theater; a booking is completed once theater availability has been confirmed and a contract has been signed. Looking at the calendar on the Wisconsin Union Theater’s website is not a good indicator of space availability, as events such as rehearsals and tech days do not show up on that calendar. The best way to find out about availability is to submit a request using the on-line form.
For the 15-16 academic year & summer 2016: Requests can be submitted at any time and will be filled pending availability.
For the 16-17 academic year & beyond: Submit requests by March 15, 2016 to receive consideration and confirming (pending availability) in April 2016.
