Mission Statement

Renaissance Theaterworks' (RTW's) mission is to create moving theater that awakens our recognition of what it is to be human - from classics to world premieres - with attention to women's roles onstage and off. RTW is Milwaukee's only women-founded, women-run theatre company.

Located in Milwaukee's Historic Third Ward, RTW produces intimate and moving theatre in The Studio Theatre at the Broadway Theatre Center.

Renaissance Theaterworks prides itself on our accomplishments towards improving gender parity for Milwaukee theater.  Visit our Gender Parity in the Arts page for information we've collected and would like to share with you.   You'll learn the startling reality of inequality, what Renaissance has accomplished and created as agents of change as well as steps you take to make an impact.
