The arts are more than activities and events in Portage County, they are woven into the lifestyles and communities through the area. Throughout the year, you can attend live theater and dance performances, take in the local music scene, explore galleries and see local artists in action.
If live performances are interesting to you, then there is no shortage of venues to get your fill in the Stevens Point area. The region offers live performances throughout the year through the Central Wisconsin Area Community Theater (cwACT), Central Wisconsin Children’s Theater, Point Dance Ensemble, Central Wisconsin Symphony Orchestra, Tomorrow River Concert Series, University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point Department of Theater & Dance, and UWSP Performing Arts Series, just to name a few. Performance spaces, like Theater @1800, Lettie W. Jensen Community Center Theater, and the theaters at UWSP, offer a variety of local productions to national acts.
