Waukesha Civic Theatre and friends kicked off the Academy Expansion Capital Campaign to raise funds for a two-phased expansion for classroom, performance, rehearsal, reception, and office space. With a focus on ensuring the future stability, WCT is also working to build its endowment. We can't wait for you to join us!

Case for Support

The Waukesha Civic Theatre Experience

Support the Campaign


Who is a Founder? Someone who has vision, commitment, and an active interest in the success of a project from inception to completion. Someone who believes passionately in the work and can bring financial resources to ensure its success. The founders of Waukesha Civic Theatre valued entertainment, community engagement, education, and fun! The leadership team of WCT would like to honor those values in the Academy Expansion Project. WCT is inviting a select group of individuals to join us in the Founders’ Corner where your financial donation will help to keep the dreams of our original founders alive and build the future through the Academy Expansion Project.

Our goal is to raise $100,000 through the Founders’ Corner Campaign. Donors at this level will be recognized in a dedicated space in the new rehearsal and reception hall where musicians will gather for pre- and post-performance, and special event music entertainment. 


Our Academy Families are the heart and soul of the Waukesha Civic Theatre. From participating in the programs and productions to volunteering, to a life-long commitment to the arts, our individual families become the larger family of the Waukesha Civic Theatre Family.

WCT recognizes the generosity of the Academy families from past and present who have made a difference in the lives of our students. Our goal for this portion of the campaign is to find 10 families to commit to giving $1,000 each year for five years, for a total gift of $5,000 each to be recognized on the newly created Academy Wall of Honor. Our goal is to raise $100,000

The Wall of Honor will be created in the newly renovated space to recognize Academy Families who contribute to the Academy Expansion Project.


By virtue of the WCT being in existence for 65 years, we know the theatre is fortunate to call many people our friends. Through the years you, our friends, have shared in the magical experience that theatre offers.  

WCT is creating a donor level, Friends of Waukesha Civic Theatre, that recognizes the support and contributions that come from our supporters and fans. WCT’s goal for this portion of the campaign is to raise $250,000 for the development of the Academy Expansion Project.  We are looking for 50 Friends to make a commitment of $1,000 per year for 5 years, for a total of $5,000. This gift will make a tremendous difference for the thousands of students and patrons we will serve now and into the future. Your gift will be recognized on the newly created Friends of Waukesha Theatre Donor Wall.

Contribute to this life-changing project for our community!

Every contribution moves us forward! Your help is needed! WCT is at a cross-road with our current facility and cannot meet the increasing demands for programs and services without expanding our space. A multi-million dollar capital campaign is currently underway to make this critical expansion a reality and keep the WCT a treasured community resource long into the future.
