Welcome to the Boulevard!

The Boulevard Theatre continues to be the “go to” place for the unexpected and entertaining in and around the city of Milwaukee. Boulevard began a cultural eruption when it opened its doors on Kinnickinnic 29 years ago and the overflow of civic improvement and cultural contributions to both the Bay View neighborhood and the greater Milwaukee community continues to provide fertile soil for new, emerging artists.

With so  many theatre companies to choose from in Milwaukee, Boulevard Theatre remains a standout for our continued commitment to community, connection and innovative creativity on the stage.

Auditions for “The Zoo”

September 8th: 6:30-8:30pm
September 10th: 2:00-4:00 pm
Plymouth Church, Milwaukee, 2717 E Hampshire St.

The combined forces of the Boulevard Ensemble and Plymouth Chorale are happy to announce auditions for the principal roles in the one-act musical “The Zoo” by Arthur Sullivan and someone other than Gilbert (B.C. Stephenson). David Flores will direct this staged reading and Donna Kummer will serve as music director. Performances will be October 22-23 & 29-30, Saturdays at 3pm, Sundays at 7pm. Rehearsals will be scheduled when mutually convenient, beginning around September 18. A modest stipend will be offered.

We are looking to cast these five roles:
Aesculapius Carboy (tenor), a chemist in love with Laetitia.
Eliza Smith (mezzo-soprano), a perfectly virtuous and highly principled young lady, in charge of the Refreshment Stall.
Thomas Brown (baritone), really the Duke of Islington, a nobleman disguised, in search of virtue, which he finds in Eliza.
Laetitia Grinder (soprano), loved by Carboy.
Mr. Grinder (baritone), Laetitia’s father, a retired grocer.

Auditions will be held at Plymouth Church, Milwaukee, 2717 E Hampshire St., on Thursday, September 8th, from 6:30 to 8:30, and on Saturday, September 10, from 2pm to 4pm. Follow this online link to reserve a 10-minute slot: http://doodle.com/poll/25gcub9piuid93fy. Please prepare 2 to 3 minutes of music by Gilbert & Sullivan or in a similar style; an accompanist will be provided.
