Milwaukee Public Theatre sponsors performing artists with disabilities at community locations throughout October in Tap the Potential.
Milwaukee Public Theater recently received grants from:
National Endowment for the Arts for workshops and creation of an original theatrework, Stories from the Medicine Wheel
with nationally-recognized artist Ty Defoe, for presentation in 2015.
Milwaukee Public Schools Safe Schools-Healthy Students, in support of our Healthy Choices educational residencies.
Milwaukee Public Schools Partnership for the Arts and Humanities to support our Peace Skills through the Arts educational residencies.
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. From our beginnings as a two-person company of mimes, musicians and storytellers, we have grown into a multi-faceted outreach arts organization working with artists from all cultures and arts disciplines and reaching 90,000-100,000 people annually with highly diverse programming that tours throughout our community. We aspire to be interactive, thought-provoking and celebrational.
Celebrating 40 years of Access, Diversity, Imagination!
