Upcoming Shows for the Artist Series’ 48th Season
The Artist Series, Jacksonville’s major presenter of Broadway, Concert and Variety, Off Broadway, and International shows, kicks off its 48th season this fall. What began as a small program to make the arts more available to students at the local community college, now Florida State College at Jacksonville, has expanded into a well-rounded performing arts program that is available to the entire community. The Artist Series utilizes some of Jacksonville’s best entertainment venues, such as the Times-Union Center and Florida State College’s South Campus’ Wilson Center for the Arts.
