Fun for the entire family, Artrageous provides a high energy visual performance that audiences help create. The Artrageous experience begins as audiences arrive in the theater lobby. Performance and art collide in a unique fusion of creative energy onstage with live music, intricate choreography, light shows, physical art creations, and more. While paintings spring to life, the Artrageous troupe of artists, musicians, singers, and dancers perform like a three-ring circus, constantly attracting attention and delighting senses with diversions, music, and action. Memories are stirred as music of many genres are performed by live musicians paying tribute to legendary icons from Lennon to Elvis to Hendrix. It all culminates with a fresh collection of finished paintings. Artrageous is not over when the curtain falls. The entire audience enjoys a continued interaction with the performers as they leave the theater.

Prior to the show, a member of Artrageous will deliver a free pre-show lecture from 6:30 to 7:00 p.m. in Babka Theatre, adjacent to Butler Hall, offering insights and background on the company and its work.
