Milwaukee Public Theatre has its roots in a profound belief in the arts as a healing resource that must be available to all people, regardless of age, ability/disability, culture, ethnicity or income level. We've always embraced metamorphosis, change, transition . . . From our beginnings as a two-person company of artist/activists, we have evolved into a multi-faceted outreach arts organization working with and employing artists from all cultures and arts disciplines. We now reach over 90,000 people annually with highly diverse programming that resonates with all segments of our community.
Join our evolution, and help us realize our dreams for the future!
