Family Nights At the Center

As part of our continued commitment to engage our communities and diversify our audiences, since 2010, the Center has offered a program called Family Nights at the Center.

This outreach program engages underserved families in targeted neighborhoods to attend theatre together at least twice throughout the Broadway season. These experiences include orchestra level seating for the show, a post-performance reception and an opportunity to meet the cast & crew of the show.

How to Participate in the Program

Through this program, we select a community-based organization that assists us in inviting families from their specific neighborhoods to participate. Some of our past participants include:

  •     Boys And Girls Club of Milwaukee
  •     Coalition for Youth, Children and Families
  •     Hmong American Friendship Association
  •     Dominican Center for Women
  •     Hmong American Peace Academy
  •     Journey House
  •     The Burmese Immersion Project
  •     Latino Community Center
  •     Girls on the Run (2019 recipients)
  •     United Community Center (2019 recipients)
  •     Latino Arts (2019 recipients)

The Marcus Performing Arts Center is grateful for the support of Bader Philanthropies, Inc. and Northwestern Mutual Foundation for Family Nights.
