LUNCH is on your own*
Our bus will make two neighborhood lunch stops:
First, at Milwaukee Public Market for the Historic Third Ward, and
Second, at the Milwaukee Rep for downtown areas surrounding the theater.
*Group Lunch Option is available to those who want to register, but may be hesitant...not knowing anyone and uncomfortable eating alone. The group option lunch addresses this concern and is a good way to make new theater trip friends. Just answer "Yes" to Group Lunch questions on the registration form and we will take care of the rest. The Group Lunch will be attending the Rep Speaker Luncheon (see below).
