[MILWAUKEE, WI, October 28, 2019] Ampersand Theater Company announced on Friday a crowdfunding campaign for their new theater space in Downtown Milwaukee.

The Ampersand Theater, located at 628 N. 10th Street, will serve as a performance venue, comedy training center, and community gathering space when it opens in early January 2020. In addition to an 80-seat black box theater, the site will include classroom space for lessons and a lounge with bar.

The campaign features a variety of giving levels and unique perks, from limited-run merchandise to tickets to the Grand Opening to recognition on a Donor Wall. Higher level donors could receive private parties or lessons at the venue — or the privilege of naming a restroom!

The initial fundraising goal of $30,000 will cover the majority of constuction, permitting, and equipment costs. Additional Stretch Goals are planned for new flooring, exterior signage, and a mural by a local artist.

The theater, located in the lower level of Calvary Presbyterian Church, housed In Tandem Theater for nearly a decade, before it closed its doors in April of this year.

The campaign is scheduled to end on December 1, 2019 at 11:59pm PST. Full details are available at

Ampersand Theater Company is Milwaukee’s home of longform improv, and so much more. In addition to regular comedy lessons at their Training Center in Milwaukee’s Harbor District they perform live shows every weekend around Southeastern Wisconsin. Learn more at
