    Great place to work!

    Equity Actor (Former Employee)
    Milwaukee, WI

    ProsThe executive staff is very friendly and visible during the rehearsal process, making you feel valuable and welcome. Great accommodations at The Plaza hotel, near the theater. Artistic Director has great vision for the theater.

    ConsWorking as an out-of-towner can be tough during the Winter months because the cold keeps you from walking anywhere. There are great places downtown within walking distance of the hotel, but it's not doable in the Winter. There is a company van that provides transportation to and from the theater, but no company car provided for the artists. That would be a nice perk, especially in the cold.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGreat support system for Milwaukee theatre. Keep reaching out to community groups and looking for ways to diversify the audiences and productions. Theatre is everyone's story.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Local actor with little chance for advancement

    Performer (Former Employee)
    Milwaukee, WI

    ProsFamily feel to the complany. Over all great staff, quality shows.

    ConsA local non-equity theatre that continually hires equity actors from NYC(not even the best) instead of using local tallent that is just as good or better.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUse local tallent. Stop using NYC actors, just because some of you out of town directors insist on it. Milwaukee audiences could careless about NYC names and would rather watch performers grow with the company, like they used to.

    Overall Good experience

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat 'family' environment to work. Great people - fun and challenging projects. Very proud to have worked there (though relatively short-term).

    ConsThe pay is not fantastic. Though most people working in this industry are not shocked by that. I would recommend working here for young professionals, people who are independently wealthy or people who are simply in it for the art of the work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI am not qualified to make recommendations to the management of the organization. I would simply would have appreciated if the organization would have compensated work a little bit more financially.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
