Thursday, October 20, 2016 (Opening Night)


Enjoy two Milwaukee Ballet performances for a special ticket price of $40. The event includes a networking reception before the performance with light appetizers and cash bar.

Scheherazade: First conceived and staged in Milwaukee in 2003, Kathryn Posin’s critically-acclaimed story ballet is colorful, enchanting and opulent.

Angels in the Architecture: Set to Aaron Copland’s “Appalachian Spring Suite,” this poignant picture of the Shaker lifestyle is moving and uplifting.

Milwaukee Rep – The Foreigner

Wednesday, November 16, 2016


Mark your calendar for Wednesday, November 16 for a classic side-splitting comedy at The Rep! A pre-show reception at the University Club is included.

This comedy is arguably one of the best comedic plays of all time. It’s widely produced, but who did it first? That’s right! Milwaukee Rep premiered this play first, in 1983. No theater knows this play better.
