“This season offers our students and community members some amazing entertainment options at Reynolds Performance Hall,” said Amanda Horton, director of UCA Public Appearances. “Each series features legendary artists along with some cutting edge performances from the worlds of music, dance and theatre. We are also excited about celebrating our 15th Anniversary Season by bringing back some crowd favorite events.
