 On any reasonably large stage production, there are people working on aspects of the show that will never be terribly apparent to the casual attendee. These people do amazing work on details of any production that often go unnoticed, but would be greatly missed if they weren’t there onstage along with all of the more obvious elements of production. The Milwaukee Rep offers an opportunity to get to know these craftspeople and designers one week from today as the Rep presents its Holiday Artisan Craft Fair in the Stiemke Studio Theatre.

According to the fair’s press release, from 1pm – 8pm in the Rep’s Stiemke Studio Theatre, the following artists will be in attendance showing their work: 


“The artists include:

·         Lara Dalbey, Hair and Make-up Supervisor - Hand-felted items

·         Rey Dobeck, Costumes First Hand - Artisan beaded jewelry
