Theater by women

for everyone

Where creativity and community thrive because women can thrive.

Renaissance Theaterworks is proud to promote the work of women onstage and off.

THINK BEYOND THE BLACK BOX

For more than 25 years Renaissance Theaterworks (RTW) has been a local leader in providing opportunities for women theater artists both onstage and off.

Since 1993, RTW has mounted over 100 full productions and staged-readings. Among these are nine original works by Wisconsin playwrights, seven World Premieres and one North American Premiere. We have told many women’s stories and provided opportunities for over 700 theater professionals 75% of these have been women.

Today RTW remains Milwaukee’s only women-founded, women-run professional theater company dedicated to improving gender parity. Our mission is to create moving theater that connects with our shared sense of being human. We are dedicated to promoting the work of women onstage and off. We produce intimate, profound theater in the Broadway Theatre Center's Studio Theatre.

Think beyond the black box to the bright future of Renaissance Theaterworks as we blast off into our 26th Season of theater by women, for everyone. Find a performance here.
