2021-2022 SEASON
What Really Matters




By Bekah Brunstetter

Directed By Suzan Fete

Oct. 22 - Nov. 14, 2021

Della, a sweet, God-fearing Christian, is also the best baker in North Carolina. Nothing would make Della happier than making a wedding cake for her best friend’s daughter, Jenny. Except that Della’s beloved Jenny is marrying a woman. A deliciously funny, multi-layered play about what divides us and brings us together, & the power of love – and cake.

Renaissance Theaterworks Anti-racism statement of action

Milwaukee’s only women-founded, women-run, professional theater company, dedicated to promoting the work of women on stage and off is looking for a Marketing Director to join the management team. This is a unique opportunity to practice your craft in service of RTW’s unique mission. You’ll be part of a tightly knit, highly collaborative team with the ability to directly impact the company’s success.

While the Marketing Director will oversee and be responsible for all aspects of marketing, the primary focus of the role is to build and execute a strategy to meet or exceed goals for single and subscription ticket sales by creating content and design of all digital and printed material, media relations, promotional events and analysis of patron activity. This position is intended to be a full time role, however, RTW would be willing to consider a part-time, and/or flexible schedule for the right candidate.

If you are a self-starting marketing professional with at least one year of experience, preferably in a non-profit organization, means you meet our basic requirements; a passion for theater and a commitment to gender equality means this is a job you’ll love.

RTW is committed maintaining an atmosphere of diversity and inclusion.  We want our staff and programming to reflect the rich culture and diversity of our city and actively encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds to apply.

In this spirit, Renaissance Theaterworks commits to
