We just put out this notice and we want as many people in the Milwaukee Theater Community to see this as possible.  We wanted to give a chance (albeit a small one) for those that did not make it into the Milwaukee generals to audition for us at the BTC:

The Broadway Theatre Center is holding a general call for auditions for local actors on July 22nd from 12-5pm.

Milwaukee Chamber Theatre, Renaissance Theaterworks, and Skylight Music Theatre will be represented.

**If we saw you at the Milwaukee Generals please do NOT sign up!**

Each auditionee will be allotted 3 minutes. If you would like to sing, you will be allotted an additional 30 seconds to perform a selection of your choice, a cappella. 

All auditionees should come prepared with two contrasting monologues and five copies of your headshot/resume.

Auditionees MUST sign up for a slot through our online system. A link will be going live on the Renaissance Theaterworks Facebook page Wednesday 7/9 at 7:00 AM.  There are 57 slots available.

Please contact with any questions.

MORE LOSERS continues the style and themes explored in LOSERS, giving patrons a glimpse into the lives of four more underdogs.

by Eric Appleton

Directed by James Fletcher
Featuring Matthew Huebsch, Dan Katula, Beth Mulkerron & Rachel Williams 

Monday, March 7 – 7:30 p.m.

When sheer boredom inspires an out-of-work computer geek to collect data on squirrel interactions, he could never have guessed how his backyard observations would reveal truths about his own, stagnant existence. Skillfully combining real life insights, including Netflix, Goth culture and nature shows, playwright Appleton explores the darkly hilarious complexities of love, friendship, employment and creating community.
