I am very proud to be serving on the board of directors for a third year. I began my involvement with WCT when my kids took classes through the A.C.T. program and performed in shows here. Each of my four children has benefitted from the experience. One learned to be fearless because, compared to an audition, most anything is a piece of cake! All of them came out of their shells and became more confident.

The 2014-2015 season marks Waukesha Civic Theatre’s 58th year providing great cultural entertainment and educational programming designed to enrich the life and soul of our community. This season alone, WCT will be offering more than 70 different artistic offerings held throughout the year!
Kicking off this exciting season is The Sound Of Music, a classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical. This beloved performance tells the triumphant love story of widower Georg Von Trapp and governess Maria at the dawn of World War II. Get ready to enjoy such memorable songs as “Edelweiss” and “My Favorite Things.”
Our historic 58th season wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of our patrons, donors, and sponsors. Your support of WCT is greatly appreciated!
To help us continue the vital role we play in the community, WCT recently kicked off a major gifts campaign called “Spotlight on the Future.” Our goal is to raise $750,000 to help us upgrade portions of our facility to make the theatre experience the best it can be for years to come. For more details, check out the information found in Footlights, the lobby, or your mailbox very soon. Your contribution will be put to great use on capital improvements where everyone can enjoy the benefits.
President, Board of Directors
I can’t believe I am starting my twelfth season with the Waukesha Civic Theatre. My how time flies when you’re having fun! It has been a pleasure and an honor to work in this beautiful facility for this incredible organization and with this amazing community, and I look forward to many more seasons of high quality live entertainment.
I am thrilled that WCT is kicking off this season by presenting The Sound Of Music. I love, love, love, love, love this show. I was blessed to play Kurt when I was in the eighth grade and it is truly one of my favorite theatrical memories out of the hundreds of shows I have been a part of. I am thrilled that I am now directing the show. It is truly a classic Broadway musical and quite possibly the most well-known and most love Rodgers an Hammerstein show. Based on the amazing and inspirational true story of Maria Rainer, Georg Von Trapp, and their incredible children, and including one of the best musical scores ever written, it truly is a masterpiece. I can’t thank the cast, crew, and staff enough for all of their hard work, patience, creativity, and humor. We have had a marvelous time putting this incredible show together, and I hope each and every one of you enjoy it as much as we have.
We have 70+ entertainment options throughout the year, with great benefits to our subscribers (up to 40% off!), including our partnership with 16 downtown Waukesha restaurants offering great discounts to all WCT subscribers. You could literally save as much as you spend if you join us as a subscriber. We also have a year-round theatre arts education program with offerings for students of all ages, including adults.
We have lots more music and stories for the Waukesha community to discover. Our 58th Season is full of exciting entertainment options. Enrich. Challenge. Entertain. That says it all, so keep watching, keep participating with, and keep supporting this cultural cornerstone. We couldn’t do it without you.
