Milwaukee Repertory Theater's 60th Anniversary Gala: Something Unexpected! May 10

108 E. Wells St., Milwaukee, WI, 53202


Join Milwaukee Repertory Theater for an exciting, unique celebration of 60 years of world-class theater at The Rep’s 2014 Gala Celebration, themed “Something Unexpected!,” on Saturday, May 10 at 5:30pm


The Rep packs all of the theatricality, thrills, and tremendous quality of its main stage productions into its annual Gala event. The “Something Unexpected!” Gala, co-chaired by Carol Manegold and Frank Krejci, will feature a number of unusual surprises and one-of-a-kind events, as The Rep invigorates many Gala traditions as it looks back on its six-decade contribution to Milwaukee’s culture and economy. 


Fun-filled, live entertainment highlighting the impressive breadth and impact of The Rep’s 60-year history and celebrating the exciting future of the company will feature familiar faces and delightful surprises. Sip a cocktail while using hand-held bidding devices to stake your claim to a wide variety of packages, one-of-a-kind experiences, and other special items from The Rep’s 2013/14 Season during the live and silent auctions, which are generously sponsored by long-time corporate partners Quarles & Brady LLP and We Energies Foundation. A sit-down dinner will prove to be a feast for both the eyes and taste buds, and the evening will conclude with an ‘after-party’ of dancing and desserts – and a few more surprises!


As its largest fundraiser of the year, Gala proceeds benefit the full scope of The Rep’s Artistic, Educational/Outreach, and Access programming. These initiatives allow The Rep to bring top-quality theater to over 20,000 students in southeastern Wisconsin, as well as audio-described and captioned performances to Rep patrons. And a special ‘raise the paddle’ appeal will highlight the company’s long-standing, industry-leading, and internationally-recognized professional internship program for emerging artists. The Milwaukee community’s generous and essential support allows The Rep to continue to make this positive impact both in Wisconsin and nationally.


Individual tickets to The Rep’s 2014 Gala are $300. Individual tables of ten are available starting at $3,000, and corporate tables of ten are available for $6,000. The event is black tie optional – but guests are encouraged to wear ‘something unexpected!’ Complimentary valet parking for guests will be available at the Wells Street entrance at the Milwaukee Center. For additional information or to RSVP, please call Rep Development Events Manager Michele Luu at 414-290-5347, or e-mail her at:  mluu@milwaukeerep.com.
