Distinguished Guest Series

More than seventy years ago, the Kohler Women's Club established the Distinguished Guest Series - bringing lecturers like Admiral Richard Byrd, Pearl S. Buck, Dr. Norman Vincent Peale and Hedda Hopper to the Waelderhaus in Kohler. Then, in the early 1960's, Kohler Foundation took over the tradition, and the Distinguished Guest Series evolved into a full-fledged performing arts series, featuring internationally recognized performers in theatre, dance, and music, intended to provide world-class entertainment at reasonable prices. The tradition continues today, with Kohler Foundation bringing the biggest names and the brightest stars to Kohler, for the benefit of our community. In 2015 and 2016, Kohler Foundation welcomes actor, author and advocate LeVar Burton, the genre-busting musical sensation Postmodern Jukebox, and the Empress of Soul herself, Gladys Knight. 

Season Banner small

Among the many talented performers the Distinguished Guest Series has featured over the years are: Maya Angelou, the Ten Tenors, the Russian National Ballet, STOMP, the Five Browns, Wynton Marsalis, the Vienna Choir Boys, Itzhak Perlman, Audra McDonald, and Yo-Yo Ma.  Join us at the Kohler Memorial Theatre (with ample free parking and easy accessibility) for the history-making performances of our 2015-16 season: LeVar Burton, Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox, and Gladys Knight.
