UA Presents and collaboration with Broadway in Tucson features a group of amaazing theater productions and special guest appearances, most of which are held at Centennial Hall, located on the campus of the University of Arizona.
Centennial Hall first opened in 1937 as an auditorium and lecture hall and ten years later began hosting the Tucson Sunday Evening Forum featuring well known American figures including Walter Cronkite, John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King and Eleanor Roosevelt, among others. The hall was renovated in 1985 and named in honor of the university’s 100th anniversary and then became the venue for UA Presents. In 2010 the first of the Broadway in Tucson series, Wicked, was held here and the partnership between the two organizations began.
