Theatrical productions: Milwaukee Repertory Theater produced 11 plays in its 2019/2020 season. These plays were produced on our own 3 stages and at the historic pabst Theater. We presented 613 performances to an audience of 163,073 people. Tickets are priced at a substantially subsidized rate and many are fully underwritten in order to provide full access.new play development: in the 2019/20 season the rep was scheduled to premiere hootenany and antonio's song but both productions fell victim to the covid-19 pandemic. Commissions were issued to idris goodwin, catherine trieschmann, ayad akhtar and eleanor burgess, and continued work on new plays with dael orlandersmith, kj sanchez, and eric simonson and gordon gano. Community engagement: the rep continued engagement with our mpact partners and other community organizations through our power & money series in conjunction with our productions, which explored the many ways that power and money inform our society as a whole. Conversations ranged from topics on redlining and racism in Milwaukee, to how art and literature boost a local economy. The engagement team worked collaboratively to find creative ways to amplify community voices through our conversation series.
Education: the rep's education programs include a pre-professional emerging professional residency program for actors, directors, Theater technicians, educators, and administrators, classes at the rep for adults and students and outreach programs to area schools. We also have a professional training institute that allowed selected high school students to participate in master classes with visiting artists. We served over 205 schools and organizations and had over 22,000 participants with student matinees, in-school and after-school programming.
