MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - It has been more than a year since the Overture Center closed their curtains due to the pandemic. But this evening they shined a spotlight on this season’s fall and winter shows.

This year they are bringing back some fan favorites like National Geographic Live, which is now in its eighth season. But there are also many new acts coming to the Madison stage including comedians, musicians, and even Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire in concert.

“One of the things that I look at when I’m booking artists is their relevancy to today, right, and being fresh, and being new,” Overture Center VP of programming and community engagement Tim Sauers said. “Not new necessarily as being an artist, but new in their voice and their material and everything they’re putting out there.”

The Broadway series was announced in January of 2021 and includes shows like Mean Girls, Hairspray, Dear Evan Hansen, and Hamilton.

Subscriptions for tickets to multiple shows go on sale June 1st. Single tickets to individual shows go on sale throughout the season.

Here is the full list of shows:
