Sangamon Auditorium announces new season

Sangamon Auditorium is expanding its 2011-12 season on both ends of the scale, with a bigger lineup of Broadway shows and a new series of smaller concerts.

The Kitchen Sink series will bring a parade of musicians to the Studio Theatre on the University of Illinois Springfield campus. On tap are singer-songwriters, a blues guitarist and a ukulele virtuoso.
