Summer Combat is less than a month away, so mark your calendars.  The Bunny Gumbo Theatre Company invites you to join us for Combat Theatre.  The summer installment of Combat arrives May 29th and 30th at the Milwaukee Youth Arts Center (MYAC.)


30 actors, 8 writers and 8 directors bring you 16 new works of theatre all created in 24 hours.  The subjects and locations for these new plays are all, literally, pulled from a hat.  The scripts are written overnight and the casts have less than 12 hours to memorize their lines and get the shows up on their feet.  After Friday’s show, we do it all over again…with less time!  There is no advanced preparation, no warning, no mercy – just instinct, ability and raw talent on display. The outcome of the process is a wide variety of 15-minute works that boggle the imagination.


Combat Theatre takes place Friday and Saturday, May 29th and 30th, at 8 pm at the Milwaukee Youth Arts Center, 325 W. Walnut (on the corner of Walnut and MLK.)  Tickets are $18 each and are available at the door only.  The weekend package gets you both nights for only $30.


Combat Theatre involves the best writers, directors, and actors Milwaukee has to offer.  Those wishing to attend are advised to arrive early as previous installments of Combat have sold out quickly.


The Milwaukee Youth Arts Center is a collaboration of First Stage Children’s Theatre and Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra.
