It's the dramatic news we've all been waiting for: Miller Auditorium will be raising the curtain and welcoming back theatre-goers for the 2021-22 season. 

While many have been missing live in-person concerts, for others the play's the thing. After a long intermission, Miller Auditorium is now finalizing the schedule for their 2021-22 season. They shared the news on their Facebook page on May 11:

More than 7.5 million people have enjoyed performances at Miller Auditorium over the years. The Western Michigan University Symphony Orchestra was the first to take the stage on opening night, January 12,1968. Peter Jennings would also appear in the inaugural season, as David Copperfield worked his magic four times (1985/1986/1991/1992). The Man in Black, Johnny Cash played the Miller stage in '74, with Bob Dylan appearing in 2010 and megastar Taylor Swift in 2007. Comedian Jerry Seinfeld has done standup on the hardwood twice (1990/2006) and the legendary George Carlin worked the room from this stage (1984/1990).
