The Broadway production of “A Chorus Line,” winner of nine Tony Awards including “Best Musical” and the Pulitzer Prize for drama will be at the Young Auditorium on Jan. 31.

The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater’s Young Auditorium will celebrate its 20th year of bringing the performing arts to the region with its 2012-13 season.

The Young Auditorium’s 20th anniversary party will kick off with a Missoula Children’s Theatre performance of “The Secret Garden” on Aug. 18.

The celebration will continue all year with a mix of annual favorites such as “The Nutcracker,” musical performances like “Mozart Requiem” by the Wisconsin Chamber Choir and classics like “Taming of the Shrew.”

Its seems only fitting that the season concludes with Wisconsin native Thornton Wilder’s “Our Town” featuring Emmy Award winning actor John McGivern in a role that explores the traditional, rural American community.

Tickets are on sale now.

All events start at 7:30 p.m. unless otherwise noted.
