When world-class dance troupes, plays and musicians come to campus, they perform at Donald W. Reynolds Performance Hall. The hall opened on September 15, 2000, with a sold-out concert by the late Ray Charles. Since then, Reynolds Performance Hall has hosted numerous celebrities, including Loretta Lynn, Gavin DeGraw, the Temptations, Gladys Knight, Kevin Eubanks, Glen Campbell, Spike Lee, Nicholas Sparks, Frankie Valli, and Wynton Marsalis. Public Appearances has also presented national tours such as Cats, Cabaret, Legally Blonde and Rent and international touring companies such as the Russian National Ballet, Sowetto Gospel Choir, and the National Symphony Orchestra. UCA students receive free or discounted tickets to many of these performances.
