No one will be seen without an appointment. A Christmas Carol rehearses Tuesdays through Sundays from November 10 to November 29 and performs December 1 – December 24 at the Pabst Theater.

Back Home Again: On the Road with John Denver
Created by the writer and music director of the 14/15 Stackner production Low Down Dirty Blues, this world premiere event is a celebration of folk musician John Denver’s life and music, including hits like “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” “Rocky Mountain High,” and “Leaving On a Jet Plane.” Back Home Again offers a rare glimpse of the man behind the music and the stories behind the songs.
Following sold-out runs of Ragtime and The Color Purple, the Quadracci Powerhouse kicks off with the groundbreaking musical, Dreamgirls. Winner of six Tony Awards and loosely based on the career of The Supremes, the musical features such hits as “Steppin’ to the Bad Side,” “One Night Only,” and the show stopping “And I’m Telling You I’m Not Going.” Dreamgirls celebrates the music of the 1960s and 70s with dynamic performances and a moving look at the behind-the-scenes reality of the entertainment industry.
Some stories have to be sung. The Lion is a true story of love, loss, family, loyalty, and the redemptive power of music. Hailed as “the best new musical” by the Huffington Post and “absolutely the best original musical of the year” by The Stage in London, writer/performer Benjamin Scheuer (winner of the ASCAP Cole Porter Award for songwriting) shares his gripping coming-of-age tale in a candid, poignant, and charming new solo musical from a next-generation troubadour. The Lion will play at The Rep as part of a national tour where Milwaukee audiences will be among the first around the country to hear The Lion roar.
Guys on Ice
Back in the Stackner for the first time since 2001, the hit musical Guys on Ice takes you inside a Northern Wisconsin ice shanty. Lloyd and Marvin brave the cold as they dream big dreams about catching big fish, while enjoying the simple luxuries of a faithful fishing-pole and a warm snowmobile suit — and hoping against an unwelcome visit from Ernie the Moocher!
