A New Way to Wharton

NextGen@Wharton is a group for young professionals in their 20s, 30s and 40s looking to experience all that Wharton Center has to offer.

Featuring a special series of performances, some events are accompanied by VIP access to pre or post show parties with food, drinks, prizes and fun, plus the chance to meet the artists and more. This program is made possible through the support of our Arts Within Reach program, which supports initiatives designed to welcome new audiences and make theatre accessible for everyone.

Benefits of NextGen@Wharton

Access. Attend VIP events, meet the artists, get a behind-the-scenes look at shows, and enjoy one-of-a-kind social opportunities. For instance, we transformed a lounge into an Irish pub, had summer tent parties, took everyone back to school on a party bus for Matilda, and personally met some amazing artists. You’ll also enjoy great food and more.

Meet. Come on your own, along with friends, on a date, in a group, however you like. You’ll be meeting new people in a fun, hip new atmosphere all while enjoying a great night out.

Connect. Engage with Wharton Center in a unique way, get to know more about the shows and connect with peers.
