Note From Jamie

“Hi, my name is Jamie Schwaba and I just read your recent Theatre News issue. First off, thanks for the fun articles and second of all, I think I have a newsworthy story. I am currently working for Milwaukee Youth Theatre as an office manager/theatre instructor. MYT is a small but wonderful organization that could use some press. First Stage is obviously the most well known children’s theatre company, and they are a wonderful organization (I know – I taught for them for two summers and have seen many of their productions). But MYT offers something different – our classes are smaller (offering more attention), more affordable and we focus on the whole production – kids get the chance to help write, work on props, scenery and costumes. We also do three productions a year that give performance opportunities and directing opportunities to young directors (often, 20 somethings).”
