Acting & Directing

Acting Residency

Acting Residents work closely with Milwaukee Rep’s Associate Artists and acclaimed guest actors on a variety of productions during their full-season residency.  While the role in which a given Acting Resident functions can change with each production, the focus never strays from acting: there are no technical or administrative responsibilities attached to Acting Residencies. 

The primary objective of the Acting Residency is to understudy roles in Milwaukee Rep’s Quadracci Powerhouse,  Stiemke Studio, and Stackner Cabaret seasons, as well as in A Christmas Carol in the historic Pabst Theater.  Through these understudy assignments, Acting Residents not only have an opportunity to observe processes and share the experience and knowledge of working professionals—and to apply such knowledge to their own work—but to develop mentoring relationships with those same professionals.  Understudy runs performed shortly after openings allow EPRs to showcase their work for fellow Milwaukee Rep company members.  Having a dynamic Emerging Professional Residency Ensemble also allows Milwaukee Rep to mount large cast productions; to that end, Acting Residents play ensemble and principal roles in mainstage shows throughout the season, as available.


Milwaukee Rep makes every effort to help Acting Residents find professional work following their seasons. Acting Residents also earn Equity Membership Candidacy points during their internships. In the culmination of their season, the Acting Residents are showcased in Rep Lab, Milwaukee Rep’s critically-acclaimed annual festival that highlights the work of our Emerging Professional Residents. It also creates an opportunity for the Artistic EPRs to collaborate with Production and Administrative EPRs.


Directing Residency

Directing Residents serve as Assistant Directors for Rep productions in the Quadracci Powerhouse, Stiemke Studio, and Stackner Cabaret, as well as for the annual production of A Christmas Carol. As ADs, Directing Residents participate as important components of the creative process with some of the most respected American and international directors working in theater today, learning valuable skills from, and making important connections with, their principal directors.

As part of their AD responsibilities, Directing Residents supervise the understudy process for the production to which they are assigned, scheduling and leading daily understudy rehearsals throughout the rehearsal period. The work of the AD and understudy cast is showcased and reviewed at an understudy run shortly following the opening of each production.

Directing Residents also showcase their directing skills in Rep Lab, Milwaukee Rep’s critically-acclaimed annual festival festival that highlights the work of our Emerging Professional Residents. Rep Lab allows Directing Residents to showcase their own directorial skills and. It also creates an opportunity for the Artistic EPRs to collaborate with Production and Administrative EPRs.
