The Arts at Millersville Announces Fresh New Season

Posted in Happenings on by .

Millersville University’s Office of Visual and Performing Arts builds upon a long history of supporting the arts and producing a vast array of unique, educational and exciting events and performances that touch many genres of artistic endeavors. Within our two centers, The Ware Center in downtown Lancaster and the Winter Center on the campus of Millersville University, our office engages both the students and community of Lancaster, and brings to its stages creative local artists as well as renowned artists and performers from around the world. Committed to the ongoing expression of excellence in the arts, we pride ourselves as “Lancaster County’s Home for the Cultural Arts” and strive to ensure that the arts in Lancaster County continue to flourish with our 2018-2019 season. The upcoming season includes our Performing Arts series featuring music from all genres, theatre and dance, as well as our Family Fun Fest series and our culturally diverse We The People First Friday events. Club 42 showcases exciting jazz and cabaret acts in a club setting while our On Screen/In Person film series brings compelling documentaries and filmmakers to the community for engaging conversations regarding relevant topics.
