Ticketing Policies

How much do tickets cost to Milwaukee Rep productions?
The Rep has a variety of different ticket types in all price ranges: Season Tickets (the best value), Group Tickets and Single Tickets. The Rep practices demand based pricing with tickets on a sliding scale up and down, thus The Rep does not publish Single Ticket prices. To get the best prices, purchase a Season Ticket Package or tickets to a show before it begins performances.

Are there fees for tickets purchased to Milwaukee Rep shows?
Yes. There are some additional costs you will encounter when purchasing tickets at The Rep.

  • Historic Restoration Building Fee: $1.00 per ticket; $2.00 per ticket for A Christmas Carol. Fees go to help maintain our performances spaces, administrative offices and shops. 
  • Per Ticket Fee: $2.25 per ticket
  • Tax: The State of Wisconsin charges 5.6% on each ticket order and 6.1% on our prix fixe dinners in the Stackner Cabaret Restaurant.
  • Single Ticket Exchange Fee: $5.00 per ticket and a potential upgrade charge if moving to a higher priced performance.
  • Subscriber Exchange Fee: Subscribers pay no fee to exchange tickets prior to the performance date. However upgrade charges apply if moving to a higher priced performance. Subscribers also enjoy the benefit of “missed show insurance” once during the season. For more information contact the Ticket Office at 414-224-9490.

What is your refund policy?
Tickets sales are final. There will be no refunds on Single or Season Tickets. Tickets may be exchanged for an alternate date within the same production. Fees and upgrades may apply. Tickets may not be exchanged once your performance has passed.

What is your weather policy?
Milwaukee Repertory Theater does not cancel or reschedule performances due to inclement weather. The Rep does not offer refunds due to inclement weather.

ATTENDING THE THEATER

Where do I park? How much does parking cost?
Patrons attending The Rep can either purchase vouchers in advance by phone or in-person on the evening of your performance for Milwaukee Center Parking. These can be purchased at the Ticket Office, the Concierge Desk in the Quadracci Powerhouse or the Stiemke Studio, and at the Gift Shop in the Quadracci Powerhouse lobby. These pre-paid vouchers cost $7.50 and are good for up to 6 hours of parking. Buy Parking

Milwaukee Center Parking is an underground parking structure located in the same building as all three of our performance spaces. Entrances are located on both Kilbourn Avenue and Water Street. (Pre-paid vouchers do not guarantee a parking space.) Regular event parking rates begin at $8.00. All parking rates are subject to change. 

Other nearby parking options:

  • BMO Harris Private Bank Parking Structure – Located just off the SE corner of Wells and Water Streets, this structure is the closest covered parking available. Enter from Wells Street.
  • Marcus Center for the Performing Arts, 123 E. State Street – This parking structure is located on the NW corner of Water and State Streets. Enter from State Street.
  • Milwaukee City Garages, 1000 N. Water – The Rumpus Room is located in this building on the corner of Highland and Market Streets. Enter from Market Street.
  • Street parking is available in the area.

Does The Rep provide dining options?
Yes. The Rep has a full restaurant located in the Stackner Cabaret. We offer either a regular dining experience with an extensive menu or a three-course prix fixe meal.

• Prix Fixe: this meal is $25 and reservations must be made in advance. The menu comes with multiple options for your three courses and has been a big hit with not only our patrons, but the downtown dining crowd in general.

• Regular Dining experience: although reservations are not required, they are strongly suggested. The restaurant fills up most evenings, so to guarantee a seat please call ahead.

To make reservations for either dining option please contact the Ticket Office at 414-224-9490 or make reservations online.

What is the dress code at The Rep?
At The Rep, you'll see all sorts of dress—from elegant cocktail attire to business casual to jeans. The rule of thumb is, wear what makes you feel most comfortable.

May I bring my children to the theater?
At The Rep we generally follow the school-age and up rule. Many of our shows have adult themes that may be inappropriate for young children. In general we do not permit those under 7 in our performances. The Rep’s production of A Christmas Carol is recommended for age 5 and up.

Everybody attending a performance must purchase a seat. Babes in arms are not permitted in the theaters. For further information regarding age-appropriateness of any of our shows, contact the Ticket Office at 414-224-9490 or view the play pages on the website.

What happens if I'm late to a show?
To cause the least amount of disruption to the performance, and to other patrons, if you arrive late you'll be seated at the discretion of the House Manager. You might not be seated in your assigned seats until intermission. If attending a performance in the Quadracci Powerhouse, you may watch the production on the monitors in the lower lobby until you are seated. If you must leave the theater during the performance, please do so quietly. Re-entry while the performance is in progress is at the discretion of the House Manager.

Are the theaters accessible to persons with disabilities?
Yes, all three of our performance spaces are accessible for those with disabilities. If you require wheelchair-accessible seating, we request you call ahead to reserve your seats so we can ensure we are able to seat you where you want. Contact the Ticket Office at 414-224-9490.

We also have select performances that are ASL interpreted, Audio Described and Open Captioned. For more information about these, contact the Ticket Office at 414-224-9490 or visit the Accessibility page.

Do the theaters have listening devices?
Both the Quadracci Powerhouse and Stiemke Studio are equipped with an infrared listening system; this ensures clarity of sound from any seat in the house. If needed, headsets and scripts are also available at the Concierge desk.

Do all shows have an intermission?
Most shows at The Rep have at least one intermission. On occasion, however, a show may be performed without an intermission. Information regarding these will be found in your performance programs or on the play pages of the website.

What's your policy on cameras, beepers and cell phones in the theater?
Cameras are not permitted in the theater. The ringing of a cell phone or beeper can be quite distracting for both the audience and the performers. If you bring a cell phone or beeper into the theater, please turn it off before the performance begins. If you must use your cell phone at intermission, please do so in the lobby and remember to turn it off before re-entering the theater.

When are post-show discussions?
Our post-show discussions are called TalkBacks and are held for select performances in the Quadracci Powerhouse and Stiemke Studio. Click here to find out more.

How can I be contacted in case of emergency?
If you think there may be a work or personal emergency for which you will be needed while you are at the performance, we have phone numbers you can provide so that you can be reached while you are here. This way, you will be able to enjoy the performance without needing to check your cell phone to see if you missed anything! If you are attending a performance in the Quadracci Powerhouse or Stiemke Studio please provide your party the following House Manager number: 414-290-5379. If our House Manager is not available at the time of the call, they can leave a message. If you are attending a performance in the Stackner Cabaret please provide your party the following number: 414-272-1994. The bartender on duty will be able to take a message.
