Step into The Rep Spotlight! This unique membership program is designed for young business leaders looking to take a leadership role with Milwaukee Repertory Theater through attending productions, philanthropy, and volunteering. This program offers three unique membership levels that allow patrons exclusive backstage access to key members of The Rep community.

Purchase your own mini-subscription package from plays selected especially for Rep Spotlight members or upgrade to any one of our regular subscription packages, and select your preferred access level. View the Spotlight Access Levels pdf »

Here’s how it works:

Step 1 – Review the 2019/20 Spotlight Subscription Package

Spotlight Subscription packages are $150 per person (plus taxes and fees). You get The Rep’s best discount ticket pricing for four of the 2019/20 Season’s most anticipated shows:

The Niceties  – Saturday, September 28, 2019
Two Pianos Four Hands – Saturday, October 19, 2019
The Nerd – Saturday, December 7, 2019
Hedwig and the Angry Inch – Saturday, February 22, 2020

If you can’t attend any of the above performances, you may use The Rep’s free and flexible ticket exchange to change to another performance of the same show.

Step 2 – Choose Your Access Level

We ask all Spotlight members to engage in philanthropy above and beyond their subscription package. Spotlight offers three unique membership levels that provide exclusive backstage access to The Rep and its artists - $250 Insider Access, $500 Leadership Access, and $1,500 Executive Access. Each access level is a donation in addition to cost of your ticket package, and it is only necessary to make one donation per household.
