Performing Arts & Community Engagement

Authentic Theatre Ensemble is bringing diverse theatrical traditions to Central Wisconsin along with arts driven community engagement and education. 

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.
