Milwaukee Youth Theatre
Peter Daniels, a teacher, founded the
Milwaukee Youth Theatre in 1991.
The company started in a small storefront
in Bay View next to the Avalon Theater.
In February of 1992, the company
incorporated and attained non-profit
status. Performances were done both in
the storefront as well as at the Avalon. In
1996 Mr. Daniels moved and Therese
Burazin became Artistic Director. For the
past 17 years Milwaukee Youth Theatre
has resided at Lincoln Center of the Arts
and participates in their resident artists
The Milwaukee Youth Theatre prides itself
at being many children’s very first chance
to perform on stage. The organization
holds open auditions eight weeks prior to
each show. Students are involved in all
aspects of performance including: acting,
scenic design, costumes, lighting and
stage managing. MYT is truly “Theater for
children, by children”.
The Milwaukee Youth Theatre offers
camps and classes at the Bay View
Community Center. They also offer Girl
Scout Workshops and free “How to
Audition” workshops which are held prior
to each audition.
