Students on Raabe Theatre stage for theatre production

Theatre Productions

Work with a creative team of storytellers to build a production from text to live performance. Immerse yourself in a collaboratively artistic community where you can explore and develop your theatrical skills through the instruction of knowledgeable, experienced faculty and staff. You can find your place in the theatre - on the stage and/or behind the scenes!

Bring stories to life on stage and experience the unforgettable exhilaration that comes with being part of a theatre production. Collaborate with other theatre lovers as you share your God-given talents and learn to hone your gifts in a supportive, nurturing environment. The Wisconsin Lutheran College theatre department presents several productions every year in the Raabe Theatre on campus. Directors include WLC Theatre Department professors and alumni, as well as guest directors from the Milwaukee area's vibrant performing arts scene. 

Students are involved in all aspects of theatre production, including acting, costuming, directing, painting, lighting, stage managing, promoting, building, designing, researching, and teaching.

Explore Milwaukee, A Vibrant Theatre Community

The location of WLC's campus provides students with an opportunity to explore Milwaukee, a vibrant regional hub for theatre and performing arts, including shows featuring the biggest Broadway hits on tour or intimate theater troupes.

With more than 15 local theater companies and countless theatre, dance, ballet, opera, and comedy performances at various performing arts centers, you're sure to find something for every taste on one of Milwaukee's stages!
