Rotunda Stage: Free
Overture Center is committed to the safety of our guests, resident organizations, artists, volunteers and staff. On Friday, March 13 our local public health authorities banned any gatherings of 250 or more people due to the global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
We have canceled the performance of Kids in the Rotunda – The Handphibians.
Funding provided by American Girl’s Fund for Children, Madison Gas & Electric Foundation and UnityPoint Health Meriter. Additional funding provided by Ian’s Pizza, Kuehn Family Foundation and by contributions to Overture Center for the Arts.

The Handphibians present a taste of Brazil as Madison’s own community percussion group celebrates 3 different styles of Brazilian rhythms: Rio style Samba, Samba Reggae of Salvador and Maracatu from Recife. Their music is also naturally influenced by the percussion traditions of Africa and even Wisconsin.
Lullaby Project Diaper Drive: For all parents, diapers are essential, and yet thousands of local parents are struggling to meet that basic need. That’s why Overture Center’s Lullaby Project is collecting diapers for Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin, southwestern Wisconsin’s largest hunger-relief organization which supports our project partner. Bring in unopened diapers to Kids in the Rotunda during the month of March and we will deliver them to Second Harvest. Thank you for participating in our diaper drive! Together, we can help give all families a happy start!
