September is Performing Arts Month


EDEN: SEPTEMBER IS PERFORMING
ARTS MOM, AND HERE IN MILWAUKEE,
THE UNITED PERFORMING ARTS FUND,
OR UPAF, IS CELEBRATING ALL THE
ORGANIZATIONS THAT ARE INVOLVED
IN THE ARTS HERE IN OUR AREA. I’M JOINED NOW BY UPAF CEO AND
PRESIDENT DEANNA TILLISCH. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR COMING BY. THIS IS THE THIRD YEAR YOU GUYS
WERE PUTTING THIS ON. HOW HAS IT GROWN OVER THE YEARS
AND WHAT DO YOU HOPE PEOPLE TAKE
AWAY FROM THIS?>>IT IS IMPORTANT TO SPOTLIGHT
THESE INCREDIBLE ASSETS WE HAVE. WITH 14 MEMBER GROUPS THAT
DELIVER THE BEST IN MUSIC,
DANCE, AND THEATER, AND WHAT
BETTER WAY THAN TO SHOWCASE BY
GIVING THE PUBLIC, FOR FREE,
LITTLE SAMPLINGS OF THE UPCOMING SEASON FOR THE 2019-2020 SEASON. EDEN: THEY GET A LITTLE TASTE OF
WHAT TO EXPECT THIS COMING
SEASON. WHAT PERFORMANCES CAN THEY
WATCH?>>STARTING NEXT MONDAY, WE WILL
BE PERFORMING AT THE ARK THEATER
AT THE SAME KATE HOTEL, WHICH IS
AN INCREDIBLE FACILITY. IT IS WORTH COMING DOWN TO SEE
THAT. WE WILL HAVE SKYLIGHT MUSIC
THEATER DOING LITTLE SNIPPETS OF
WHAT THEIR SEASON WILL LOOK
LIKE. AND SO, THE DOORS OPEN AT 5:30
AND THE PERFORMANCES ARE AT 6:00
FOR AN HOUR, IT IS A GREAT WAY
TO HAVE FUN, GRAB A DRINK, AND
BE ENTERTAINED. EDEN: THERE ARE SEVERAL DATES?>>FOR THREE MONDAYS IN A ROW,
WE WILL BE DOING IT AT SAINT
KATE AND CLOSE OUT THE MONTH AT
DOORS OPEN MILWAUKEE WHERE WE
WILL HAVE FOUR PERFORMANCES AT
THE NORTHWESTERN MUTUAL TOWER. STARTING A 10:45 THROUGH 1:30,
COME DOWN. IT IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE
PUBLIC. EDEN: THERE’S SO MUCH TALENT
HERE IN THE MILWAUKEE AREA. WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO YOU TO GIVE
THESE PEOPLE A PLATFORM TO
SHOWCASE THAT TALENT?>>THAT IS AN IMPORTANT POINT
BECAUSE ALL OF THESE GROUPS ARE
MILWAUKEE MADE IN MILWAUKEE
OWNED, SO WE WANT TO KEEP THE
TALENT HERE IN MILWAUKEE, AND
PART OF THAT IS FOR PEOPLE TO, AND ENJOY THE ARTS. THEY ARE INCREDIBLE. WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT THE TALENT
THAT WE HAVE, THE PRODUCTIONS,
THE TALENT NOT ONLY ON STAGE,
BUT BEHIND THE SCENES, IT REALLY
IS SECOND TO NONE. WHEN PEOPLE, FROM CHICAGO, THEY
TO — THEY SAY THIS IS A GREAT
PERFORMING ARTS COMMUNITY. EDEN: THAT IS SAYING SOMETHING. FOR PEOPLE INTERESTED IN COMING,
WORK AND THEY GET INFORMATION?>>THEY CAN GO TO TWO DIFFERENT
PLACES. THERE IS A WHOLE MENU AND
SCHEDULE FOR ALL THE UPCOMING
PERFORMANCES AND WHAT GROUPS
WILL BE PERFORMING WHEN. ED
