April 21, 2015 – [Milwaukee] – Join Milwaukee Repertory Theater as it culminates its 61st Season with “Made in Milwaukee” Milwaukee Repertory Theater’s 2015 Gala on Saturday, May 9.

Everything that is now considered part of Milwaukee’s legacy was once new. Brand new. It started as nothing more than an idea that, through community support, was born into something great that left a lasting impact. It is in that spirit that The Rep invites all Milwaukee theater lovers to be a part of The Rep’s 2015 Gala. This celebration of all the great things born in Milwaukee will be an evening of dinner, dancing, entertainment, and auctions that is sure to be unforgettable.
The evening begins with a cocktail hour with passed hors d’oeuvres and silent auction in The Rep’s intimate Stiemke Studio. Attendees can sip a cocktail while using hand-held bidding devices to stake their claim on a wide variety of many unique Milwaukee treasures and once-in-a-lifetime experiences. On display for an entertaining photo op will be two Harley Davidson motorcycles complete with leather props and costumes to help everyone get into the spirit.
The co-chairs for this year’s event are: Sue and Bob Lueger and Sally and Nic Wahl. Highest level “Milwaukee Maker” sponsors include: Fiduciary Management, Inc, Godfrey & Kahn, Grace Matthews, Harley-Davidson, Kohl’s, Northwestern Mutual, Marcus Corporation, Rockwell Automation, and WE Energies Foundation.
