Segerstrom Center for the Arts is gearing up for a spectacular 2020, from world class performances by internationally renowned dance companies and hit Broadway shows, to musically absorbing seasons of chamber, jazz and cabaret – there’s something for everyone on our stages. And that’s just the beginning. With the new decade comes even more FREE entertainment for the community outside on the Julianne and George Argyros Plaza. We asked you on our social media polls, and you answered! Your favorite Plaza events are returning, Silent Disco, Summer Jazz, and Tuesday Night Dance, all will grace our Plaza this year.
When announcing the 2020 line-up, Segerstrom Center for the Arts President Casey Reitz said, “Since arriving at the Center in December, I’ve been blown away by the crowds and energy on the Argyros Plaza. I’m so pleased to see people making it their own, and it’s been a great way for me to meet and get to know people from all over Orange County. We have a great line-up of events, but I think people will especially want to add our first Mardi Gras celebration, KPOP Tuesday Night Dance event and the Plaza Prom to their calendars. These are definitely not-to-be-missed.”
Tuesday Night Dance regular, Brian says, “I’m looking forward to Tuesday Night Dance returning and getting back to learning new styles of dance every month. It will be especially fun seeing my dance instructor teaching K-Pop to the public. It’s the best way to end your Tuesday.” The Plaza is a place for everyone! Where local artists take the stage, come and enjoy a wide variety of Arts and Entertainment with our free WIFI, outdoor seating, George’s Café and your furry friends.
