Message from the President:
Our 68th season has ended, the sets have been torn down, costumes and props packed away, computers turned off and aching feet, backs and minds relaxing. Time for us to rejuvenate. As the dust settles from our 2018 season I want to take a moment and thank those who made last season happen.
Thanks to you our audiences, without you we have no reason to exist. Attic is about telling great stories. If no one listens, then we are only doing it for ourselves. You listened!! Thank you. Of the 24 performances of our 3-show summer season over half were sellouts or near sellouts!!
Thanks to all who attended our Music in the Attic Fundraiser.
I wish to thank all our donors.

Berray Billington, President
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.
