Spotlight On The Board Of Directors: Gypsy

We weren’t much when we started.

The first play we put on was The Little Foxes by Lillian Hellman. The year was 1957 and the performance space was Waukesha High School (known later as Waukesha Central Middle School and currently as Les Paul Middle School).

David Hundhausen writes: “On opening night, one of the actresses … did not make her entrance because she was afraid to go onstage. Cast members … had to literally push her onstage as her lines were crucial to the audience’s understanding of the play.”

Look at us now. Under John Cramer’s leadership our beautiful theatre is open all year, with dozens of performances of all kinds. Our educational programs are second to none. And the performers, volunteers, and staff maintain the same spirit that infused our founders.

In the very first program, Harold Brierton, our first board president, said, “The future of our organization depends on you!”

His words are just as true today. We need your financial support to maintain and grow programming that will enrich, challenge, and entertain this community for decades to come.

Welcome to the Waukesha Civic Theatre’s 60th season. The future of our organization depends on you!
