“I am so excited about the coming season—the amazing artists, deeply engaging residencies on campus and in the community, and performances of works we’ve commissioned,” said Center for the Performing Arts Director George Trudeau. “And, of course, ‘Jersey Boys.’ I can’t wait to welcome audiences and share with them engaging experiences with the performing arts.”
