Performing Arts Center

The performing arts at Sun Prairie Schools are stronger than ever, thanks to a school district that supports artistic and cultural activities for the benefit and enjoyment of everyone. The performing arts offers audiences the opportunity to engage very directly and personally in the arts, fostering greater participation and providing an engaging means for exploring personal and societal issues through the world of the stage.
Whether you're a student, teacher, parent, or community member, we look forward to seeing you at an event soon.
