‌Each semester, all Performing Arts students are enrolled in the class Performing Arts-Field Experience. This class gives students the opportunity to experience the best the arts communities of Chicago, Ill., Milwaukee and Madison, Wis., have to offer. Three times each semester, we take students to a variety of dance, music and theatre events in these three cities.

Past events include: Arthur Miller’s last play–Finishing the Picture, Steppenwolf Theatre productions with Gary Sinese and John Malkovich, Rigoletto and Sweeney Todd at the Lyric Opera of Chicago, Dracula at the Milwaukee Ballet, Chicago Symphony Orchestra performing Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, and the pre-Broadway productions of the Goodman Theatre’s productions of Death of a Salesman and Mary’s Zimmerman’s The Odyssey, Aida and The Producers.
