Milwaukee Repertory Theater's 60th Anniversary Gala: Something Unexpected! May 10
Join Milwaukee Repertory Theater for an exciting, unique celebration of 60 years of world-class theater at The Rep‚Äôs 2014 Gala Celebration, themed ‚ÄúSomething Unexpected!,‚ÄĚ 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 ‚ÄúSomething Unexpected!‚ÄĚ 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‚Äôs culture and economy.
Fun-filled, live entertainment highlighting the impressive breadth and impact of The Rep‚Äôs 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‚Äôs 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 ‚Äėafter-party‚Äô of dancing and desserts ‚Äď and a few more surprises!
As its largest fundraiser of the year, Gala proceeds benefit the full scope of The Rep‚Äôs 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 ‚Äėraise the paddle‚Äô appeal will highlight the company‚Äôs long-standing, industry-leading, and internationally-recognized professional internship program for emerging artists. The Milwaukee community‚Äôs generous and essential support allows The Rep to continue to make this positive impact both in Wisconsin and nationally.
