The Lunt-Fontanne Ensemble has been producing plays on campus at UWM at Waukesha since 1966. To date, 120 productions have been mounted with hundreds of students acting on stage or helping behind the scenes. Many students have gone on to have careers in the arts. We continue to grow as a theatre department with the goal of giving students an opportunity to explore both classic and contemporary works. Students as well as community members have the opportunity to participate in any of the  shows produced in the 330 seat Lunt-Fontanne Theatre each season. You need not be a theatre major to get involved! All students (regardless of academic major) as well as community members are encouraged to get involved! 

One full production is scheduled during the fall and spring semester. In the summer months, a full stage musical in collaboration with the Music Department is usually planned. Area youth from the community are engaged with a Children’s Theatre production.

Opportunities to act or work as a member of the production team (costume, lights, set, sound, PR) are available to all.
