SHEBOYGAN, WI (July 10, 2023) - The Weill Center for the Performing Arts, a 1,150-seat venue in downtown Sheboygan, Wisconsin announces its participation in Independent Venue Week with a special Comedy Night on Friday, July 14 at 7:30 p.m. The night will feature five of Wisconsin’s most talented up-and-coming comedians: Matty Field, Ryan Mason, Dana Ehrmann, Olivia Witt, and Eric Smith. Tickets can be purchased in advance for $15 at or at the door.

“Independent venues like the Weill Center rely solely on ticket sales and donations to operate,” said Katy Glodosky, executive director of the Weill Center. “We are incredibly fortunate for the support we receive from our community so we can continue to serve as a vital cultural and economic foundation for our area.”

Now in its sixth year in the United States, Independent Venue Week unites venues, fans, artists, promoters, labels, media and more to shine a spotlight on locally owned and operated live performance spaces. This nationwide initiative highlights why venues are so much more than just places for live music – they are hubs for entertainment, creativity, arts, and culture that widely connect people of all ages, backgrounds, abilities, genders, ethnicities, skills, experiences and walks of life in their communities.

The Weill Center for the Performing Arts stands alongside 400+ venues in 200+ cities across 50 states and Washington DC to highlight the significance of independent venues within the global music industry. These local stages provide performing artists with a platform to refine their craft, cultivate their stage presence, and embark on their career journeys.  For fans, these are places to get up close to artists that, one day, may well be playing stadiums.
