Marking the beginning of its next half century of entertainment excellence, Wisconsin Singers is set to dazzle audiences with its 51st season show for one weekend only at the Overture Center ‘s Capital Theater on Friday, Nov. 16 and Saturday, Nov. 17 at 8 p.m.
Appropriately titled, Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now! this year’s show is non-stop fun that impresses with stellar song and dance, big band sound, and classic Badger spirit featuring the top talents of the UW Madison. Saturday’s show will open with the Baraboo Boys and Girls Club Harmonix.
Audiences are transported back in time with memorable “One-Hit-Wonders” and then return to today with award-winning music from the Grammys, Tonys and Oscars. There is a little something for every generation including music by well-known artists Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson, and Elton John while kids of any age will laugh at the Singers’ renditions of music from the Lego Movie and Trolls. Music theater and movie fans will enjoy songs from The Greatest Showman, Dear Evan Hansen, Hamilton, Pitch Perfect 3, and La La Land. The celebrated Wisconsin Singers’ band caps off an unforgettable evening with tributes to funk and Stevie Wonder. And no show would be complete without a musical salute to UW’s time honored Fifth Quarter where you’ll sing along with “On Wisconsin” and “Varsity.”
