To be successful at meeting those challenges and opportunities we must broaden our base of support and deepen the commitment of our current supporters. Communities across America have recognized the cultural, economic and social value of theatre. Attic Chamber Theatre has built an impressive place in the fox Valley arts landscape. Please consider a tax-deductible donation, so we can continue our mission of bringing excellent theatre to the Fox Cities. The variety and quality of shows that Attic Chamber Theatre is producing is exciting.  We keep striving to find new plays and musicals that challenge us and you our audience. We will nourish your mind, delight your spirit, and enrich your life through productions of classic, contemporary and musical plays.  And  the best part you’ll see your friends and neighbors on stage performing or sitting next to you, sharing in the communal experience of live local theater. Whether you’re a past audience member or joining us for the first time, Attic Chamber Theatre welcomes you. We hope that you will be able to take part in one or more of our exciting 2019 season shows and experience the new direction we are taking here at Attic Chamber Theatre.

CREATING EXCELLENT COMMUNITY THEATRE

Attic Theatre was founded in 1950 in the attic of the Cloak family home on North Union Street in Appleton, Wisconsin.  What began as an acting class has become the longest running community theatre in the Fox Valley.  In the early days, Attic performed in a variety of venues such as Jefferson School and local church basements.  When Lawrence University opened the Music-Drama Center, Attic began its lengthy partnership with LU, employing both theatres during the summer months.  Our newest venue, the beautiful UW Fox Valley Communication Arts Center, affords the opportunity to produce a wider array of plays with greater audience appeal.

From simple beginnings, Attic has grown to produce hundreds of full-scale shows over a span of more than 60 years.  In addition to a full summer season, Attic currently offers a popular children’s workshop in the spring and a weeklong day camp in the summer.

Each year, thousands of people participate in Attic Theatre on stage, backstage, as volunteers, or as audience members.  Ticket sales exceed 5,000 annually.  Attic truly does create excellent community theatre.

Born out of the passion we have for the arts, our goal is to cross-promote events sponsored and produced by arts groups across Northeast Wisconsin.  We saw the need for public awareness of arts events occurring in our communities.  By working together, our mission is to promote live performance events produced by non-profit organizations made up of community members.
