Welcome to the 21st Season!
Thanks for inspiring joy and enthusiasm!

Cowan Center Circle members are our closest friends! When we announce something new, you get to buy first. After the annual subscription drive, members – and only members – enjoy the benefit of reserving tickets to all of the shows you want to buy before they go on sale to the public! Annually, we show our appreciation of your support by providing member benefits and the Circle Member Gala. The annual gala celebrates you!

Your loyalty makes us soar. Our membership support helps us improve and expand. As a result, all patrons enjoy a better venue featuring excellent programming each season. We keep you connected to the best performing arts presented in Tyler and the East Texas Region. Bringing the world stage to Tyler is what we do.

The UT Tyler Cowan Center is building on its previous success and counts on you for our amazing future. The performances and lectures we present create special memories by sharing unique experiences in the heart of East Texas.

Our patrons inspire me with their joy and enthusiasm. I look forward to sharing another spectacular year with you at the Cowan Center!

Please join us again or for the first time!
Susan Thomae-Morphew,
Cowan Center Executive Director
