Entertainment in Jefferson spans the calendar year with everything from big bands, the blues and classical offerings to engaging children’s theater. Fostering the cultural vitality of Jefferson is the Council for the Performing Arts, a nonprofit organization that has been a part of the community for more than 30 years.
The entity is devoted to creating a wealth of opportunities for all professional and amateur artists in the Jefferson area.
Supplementing the cultural landscape of Jefferson is one of southeastern Wisconsin’s largest community theaters. The Performing Arts Center, located within Jefferson High School, is a 996-seat auditorium featuring a 64 foot by 44 foot proscenium stage, and superior lighting and sound systems. The Council for the Performing Arts shares the stage with the busy school district schedule, welcoming novice and amateur musicians, actors, dancers and other performers.
