Mission


Umbrella Group is a theatrical production company aiming to challenge and inspire its audiences through a broad spectrum of creative talents and performance styles.

The company provides artistic, technical, and fundraising support to performance projects in the Milwaukee area that might otherwise go unrealized.

We strive to provide a creative environment for artists to develop, broaden, and practice their craft, by establishing and maintaining a non-profit arts organization dedicated to the production of high quality performance experiences for both artists and audience.

Current Productions


Extremities by William Mastrosimone

This intense drama portrays an attempted rape, and the gripping aftermath, as the would-be victim turns the tables on her attacker. EXTREMITIES explores themes that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago when the play was written.

We have also formed a partnership with The Healing Center of Milwaukee,
a local organization that supports survivors of sexual violence.

We believe in the work they do. And we believe in the power of theatre to affect change. Will you help us bring this story to the stage?

Please consider donating to our fundraising campaign, and help us spread the word to others who might be interested. Every dollar counts. We appreciate your support and we look forward to seeing you at the theatre!

We are raising money to:

  1. Compensate the wonderfully talented local artists who are graciously giving their time to produce meaningful work in this city. 
  2. Support the Healing Center, which works tirelessly to holistically support men and women who fall victim to sexual violence.
