The house lights have dimmed and the curtain is rising on the 2023-2024 season at the Wharton Center for Performing Arts in East Lansing. Performance tickets are now available as part of a subscription package.
This season, cello icon Yo-Yo Ma, Grammy-winning pianist Emanuel Ax and violin wonder Leonidas Kavakos return by demand for an intimate all-Beethoven performance. Violinist Ray Chen makes his Wharton Center debut with a night of Bach and more; Step Afrika blends percussive dance styles with songs, storytelling and humor; David Sedaris brings his unique satire to the stage; and Cirque Dreams “Holidaze” will dazzle with a brilliant and whimsical family holiday spectacular.
The Wharton Center’s 2023–2024 season also includes sensory-friendly performances that provide supportive and welcoming environments for people with autism spectrum disorders and other sensory sensitivities. In addition, audiences will be able to engage in popular insight previews and after chats for many of this season’s performances.
The entire season can be found at whartonseason.com. Performing arts subscription sales consist of at least five events. Patrons receive priority seating ahead of the public, the best seats in the house, subscriber-only discounted rates, payment plan options and more. Individual tickets will go on sale later this summer.
The lineup for the 2023-2024 season includes:
Club 750 events
Act One family events
