Professional Connections

Our working faculty members stay active in their fields. Plus, we regularly employ Guest Professionals to augment our team as class instructors, workshop leaders, and more. You will work with guest artists in many of our productions, as guest directors, choreographers, designers, and more.


Professional Collaborations
Our department regularly collaborates with professional companies in the area. Either a company brings their artistic staff into our theatre to work with our students, or our students and staff work together to produce a show in their professional space. Working alongside professionals while in school is a really unique education. Earning professional credits while still studying is a real bonus.

Recent collaborations include: Renaissance Theaterworks (Censored on Final Approach), Uprooted Theatre (In the Red and Brown Water), and Milwaukee Chamber Theatre (Lend Me a Tenor and The Lion in Winter).
