The Make Believe Ball is First Stage’s primary fundraising event and a black-tie ball for the entire family.  This Ball allows patrons and donors to celebrate one of First Stage’s productions, and features a silent auction, photo booth, children’s craft area, dancing, and sit-down dinner.  Funds raised from the event go to support First Stage’s Theater in Education programming, Academy programming, theater productions, and play development.  This year is the 20th anniversary and celebrates First Stage’s production of ANATOLE with a French theme.  First Stage is looking for performers willing to share their talents with our 400 guests.


First Stage needs 1-2 actors skilled in mime and a strolling accordion player to play between 5:30pm to 7:30pm on March 1, 2014.   The event will be held at the Milwaukee Hilton City Center.  Please submit hourly rates and experience when responding.  Actors willing to donate their time for this fundraiser would be greatly appreciated!
