Milwaukee Rep offers several shows that will make a great addition to any curriculum. Our Student Matinee experience is designed to go beyond seeing the production. For every matinee, we offer a free PlayGuide and supplemental Teacher Guide to provide context to the show, dynamic discussion questions, and curriculum suggestions. After every 10:30amStudent Matinee, with the exception of A Christmas Carol, we offer a TalkBack with the actors. And for select productions, schools have the option of booking a full Rep Immersion Day experience!

Rep Immersion Days

 A full day of fun and education where students will get an inside peek into the magic of creating live theater. Students arrive in the morning for demonstrations of the technical side of the production to show how we bring a script to life on our stage. After a boxed lunch with various staff members at The Rep, students will experience the full production, followed by a TalkBack with the actors. The cost for the Immersion part of your day is $10 per person and includes lunch. The $10 does not include your ticket to see the production.

Rep Immersions will be offered for:
Guys and Dolls – Oct 10 at 8:30am
Animal Farm – Jan. 23 and Feb 7 at 8:30am
Our Town – April 24 at 8:30am
