This season announcement marks the second year of the Hult Center's management of the Broadway in Eugene series following the takeover for the 2023/2024 season.

“We're beyond thrilled to be continuing the Broadway in Eugene series at the Hult Center and have been blown away by the feedback we've received on how this series impacts so many in our community, from developing artists, to the incredible economic ripple effect felt throughout from businesses in our communities, including restaurants, hotels, and more. While this may be our biggest season yet, it's only the beginning of some ambitious plans," said Hult Center Interim General Manager, Jeff Weinkauf.

Subscription renewals are now available for all current Broadway in Eugene subscribers, with new subscriptions becoming available at a later date, and then followed by single ticket sales to be announced later this summer.
