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 2018/19 Spotlight Subscription Package

Spotlight Subscription packages are $125 per person (plus taxes and fees). You get The Rep’s best discount ticket pricing for four of the 2018/19 Season’s most anticipated shows:

In The Heights – Saturday, September 29, 2018
Guards At The Taj – Saturday, October 27, 2018
Junk – Saturday, January 19, 2019
Ring of Fire – Saturday, April 6, 2019

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.
