Production Support

wig making, scenery, painting, props, costumes and more production items at Milwaukee Repertory Theater

Since our inception in 1954, we have been locally and nationally renowned for our artistic excellence and dedication to our craft. Milwaukee Rep employs more than 60 local artisans – many of whom moved to Milwaukee specifically to work in our production shops – and more than 200 actors, directors, and designers at the top of their fields.

Since the inception of our Associate Artists, we have expanded the breadth of our productions and appeal to diverse audiences throughout Milwaukee. These artists participate in the creation of our work and advocate on our behalf. The work on our stages is only as good as the resources we are able to provide for our actors, directors, designers and technicians.
