In 2015, Milwaukee Rep partnered with Bronzeville Arts Ensemble, hosting them as a Resident Theater Company.
“Bronzeville Arts Ensemble is elated to be in residence at Milwaukee Rep. We are in a time when African-American led theaters are struggling to stay afloat. This opportunity affords us a chance to focus on our impact, on our art, and on building an organization that will serve Milwaukee. While learning from the staff of The Rep, one of America's theatrical treasures, Bronzeville will assist in their efforts to achieve greater diversity and community engagement. We join other wonderful, local companies in their fight to keep theater relevant, to bring art to underrepresented groups, and to create dynamic art that can heal our community.”
– Malkia Stampley, Producing Artistic Director of Bronzeville
