Dear Evan Hansen at UIS Performing Arts Center

Mon, Dec 02 , 2024 • 7:30pm - 9:30pm

One University Plaza, Springfield, IL 62703

The Tony award winning musical, Dear Evan Hansen comes to the UIS Performing Arts Center

Declared “one of the most remarkable shows in musical theater history” by the Washington Post, Dear Evan Hansen is the first musical to take a groundbreaking look — from the point of view of both the parents and young people — at our complex, interconnected, and social media-filled lives.

Evan Hansen is a high school student who always feels like he’s on the outside looking in. Evan finally gets what so many of us are searching for—the chance to finally fit in. What follows is a poignant, funny, and powerful musical about how even though it can be hard, we can find each other—and ourselves—along the way.
