Titanic will be staged in the large, yet intimate Quadracci Powerhouse Theater. Information and photos about this unique theater venue.
Directions to the Quadracci Powerhouse Theater: From the Milwaukee Rep’s Wells Street entrance, walk straight ahead under the atrium dome. The Quadracci Theater is located on the Mezzanine Level. Take the elevator or walk up the white marble stairway. From the Mezzanine Level elevator exit, walk around to the right into the Powerhouse Theater entrance.
The Quadracci Powerhouse Theater is handicapped accessible. There is handrail support on each row as you descend and ascend the aisle.
Accessibility Policy: On the bus, you must be able to climb steps to board and exit the bus. If you need assistance, we require that you bring a friend to give you a hand.
Pre-Show Discussion: Optional, but free and highly recommended. It starts at 1:15 PM, but you can enter at any time.
Free Time: From 11:00 am until the show begins at 2:00 pm there will be free time for lunch, shopping, and exploring. Lunch is on your own, but there is a Group Lunch Option 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. Please note that the cost of lunch is separate and as such is not included in your registration fee.
Our Group Lunch is at Onesta. Italian for “honest,” Onesto puts a modern twist on Italian cuisine that’s fresh and flavorful. Located in the heart of the Historic Third Ward, Onesta's elegant service and a unique menu that has been frequently named among the best Italian in Milwaukee. Our bus cannot use the street in front of Onesto, so diners must be able to walk a city block to the restaurant. We will be in the intimate second-floor event space, a warm and inviting urban loft. There is no elevator to our dining room so diners must be able to climb the steep stairs. Each diner is responsible for their own dining costs. We will be emailing registrants to find out your meal choice. We have a large group and that is necessary to save time. Again lunch is not included in your registration.
Our bus will also drop-off and pick-up at the Milwaukee Public Market for lunch alternatives. There are nine unique eateries contained within the Milwaukee Public Market. There are also many nearby Third Ward restaurants from which to choose.
Historic Third Ward Official Restaurant List - Check to see if they are open.
Historic Third Ward Official Shopping List - Check to see if they are open.
There are also a number of restaurants within easy walking distance of the Milwaukee Rep located on both sides of the Milwaukee River and between the Milwaukee Public Market and the Milwaukee Rep. Again, check to see if they will be open. Many restaurants are limiting hours due to Covid.
Bear in mind that our boarding bus route is like Madison Metro or any other municipal bus service. Please arrive early at your boarding stop so you don’t miss the bus. When everyone is aboard and seated, we leave.
Don’t be late. We can wait just 5 minutes at any one location.
