The mission of Milwaukee Chamber Theatre (MCT) is to produce intimate, high-quality, professional theatrical works of literary merit that engage and challenge the audience, while employing and nurturing principally local theatre artists. MCT was co-founded in 1975 by two local actors, Montgomery Davis and Ruth Schudson, who envisioned a space where audiences could open their minds to new theatrical ideas and Milwaukee's theatre professionals could broaden their skills and apply their craft.
Since our founding, MCT has produced hundreds of intimate, high-quality, professional theatrical works of literary merit that engage and challenge the audience, while employing and nurturing principally local theatre artists. A resident company in the Broadway Theatre Center since 1993, MCT partners with other arts organizations, community-based organizations, and universities to produce thought-provoking productions and innovative outreach programs on an intimate, human scale. As one of Milwaukee’s leaders in commitment to local talent, MCT provides regular employment and a stable artistic home to Milwaukee theatre professionals through a five-production performance season. Each year over 16,000 individuals attend MCT performances, take advantage of our educational opportunities, or participate in our artistic activities. We are proud to be one of the cultural institutions that positively contributes to the quality of life in Milwaukee.
