the Weidner

Welcome to the Weidner

The Edward W. Weidner Center for the Performing Arts is known for its elegant design and the acoustic excellence of its 2,021-seat main theatre, Cofrin Family Hall. We also house two smaller performance spaces, Fort Howard Hall and Jean Weidner Theatre, along with a dance studio and Grand Foyer.

Located on the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Campus, The Weidner is a home for UW-Green Bay Music and Theatre & Dance programs, community events, and performances by visiting artists and touring companies. The Weidner also focuses on scholastic development with our impactful education series – Stage Doors.
