As a department of the University of Illinois Springfield, Sangamon Auditorium is fortunate to have a rich relationship with UIS students. Now that a new freshman class has moved into the dorms and the campus is full of first-week-of-classes activity, it seems appropriate to highlight some of the ways we engage with UIS students.
- UIS students receive a discount of up to 50% on ticket purchases for most events in our performing arts season.
- Each year, some Sangamon Auditorium events are included in the ECCE Speaker Series. Students enrolled in the ECCE course earn credit for attending and discussing the events.
- Whenever possible, Sangamon Auditorium includes UIS students in special projects related to performances. Recently, students and faculty in environmental studies collaborated with Fifth House Ensemble for a unique performance called Listen to the River. Student musicians had the opportunity to perform on stage alongside members of the US Army Field Band and Chorus and theatre students attended workshops with members of The Acting Company.
- Sangamon Auditorium employs student workers backstage, in the administrative offices, and in the Ticket Office.
