Authentic Theatre Ensemble, or THE Theatre, is a repertory company committed to social awareness and the role theatre can play in opening dialog within a community. We strongly support LGBTQ and BLM, and all alternative communities willing to speak out. We work to highlight the positive role diversity plays in Central Wisconsin. Audiences can trust that THE Theatre events and performances are founded in empowerment and authenticity.
Who We Are
Stay A Part
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Watching Rocky Horror is a raucous, very "adult," Queer-positive experience.
It's interactive! You holler at the stage and the actors holler at you.
18 and older only.
Come dressed as your favorite character from the movie, but most importantly in what makes you feel great, or just as you are.
Minimal props are welcome but please keep quantities small.
(No loose glitter!)
It's adults-only entertainment.
We will have open seating. You get to choose who to sit with and where to sit.
MASKS ARE MANDATORY for audience members. All performers are vaccinated.
This is just for adults, did I mention that?
We are here to have a great time, join the cult fandom!

Emancipation Reflection Project
2020 brought Black Lives to national attention. THE Theatre proudly supports the BLM Movement and seeks to offer the Central Wisconsin community insight to the issues the movement represents.
Debuting over the July 4th weekend, we offered our local citizens the opportunity to reflect about what Emancipation means for present day BIPOC communities.
In partnership with local businesses, UWSP, and Alice's Garden Co-op out of Milwaukee,
THE Theatre encouraged community members to find an outdoor space to enjoy while reflecting on questions and statements by Black Americans.
"Seek first to understand rather than be understood."
We currently offer classes in partnership with MidState Technical College, look through the course listings!
