The Jay and Susie Gogue Performing Arts Center at Auburn University has announced a star-studded 2022-23 season performance schedule.

The new season commences in August 2022 and features 28 performances running the gamut from Grammy-winning country music legends and classic Broadway musicals to some of the most dynamic artists from the worlds of dance, chamber arts, pop and rock ‘n’ roll. Concerts by country stars Vince Gill and Clint Black, performances of Broadway musicals “Hairspray!” and “Chicago” and a comedy show featuring legendary comedian and former late night talk show host Jay Leno highlight the stellar lineup.

Performances are divided across six genre-specific series, including Amphitheatre, Broadway, Celebrity, Concert, Dance & Movement and Orchestra & Chamber Music. A seventh series, Family, is offered separately and includes four shows tailored especially for young audiences.

Highlights from the 2022-23 season, which is sponsored by Walt and Ginger Woltosz, include:

  • Grammy and Academy of Country Music award winners Vince Gill and Clint Black
  • Comedian and late night television icon Jay Leno
  • Four Broadway performances, including Legally Blonde, Fiddler on the Roof, Hairspray! and Chicago
  • The Kat & Dave Show, featuring Grammy-winning composer David Foster and singer-songwriter and actress Katharine McPhee
  • Mark Morris Dance Group’s The Look of Love: An Evening of Dance to the Music of Burt Bacharach, a new work co-commissioned by the Gogue Center

Most performances in the season will take place indoors at the Woltosz Theatre, with engagements in the Amphitheatre Series presented outdoors at the Amphitheatre at the City of Auburn Lawn and Porch.

Three additional 2022-23 season performances will be announced later this month. The current schedule is listed below.

Full season subscriptions for the 2022-23 season are currently available to Gogue Center subscribers, sponsors and donors. Season and series subscriptions will be available to the general public beginning Tuesday, June 28.
