Milwaukee Public Theatre strives for equitable arts access and supports community self-representation to advance social justice issues, self determination and transformation through creative programs and performances in the City of Milwaukee.


Milwaukee Public Theatre is rooted in a profound belief in the arts as an empowering and healing resource that must be available to all people, regardless of age, ability/disability, culture, ethnicity or income level. From our beginnings as a two-person company of mimes/musicians/storytellers, we have grown into a multi-faceted arts organization focused on accessibility. Through strong partnerships with schools, community organizations and the public we harness the power of creative expression to address issues of social justice, self-determination and personal transformation.
