Volunteer Guide

Bravo, Next Act!

An annual celebration and fundraising event which brings together Next Act supporters, artists and Board Members to recount the successes of the current season and anticipate the highlights of the next. The party is replete with lots of opportunities to win unique gift packages, exciting and competitive auctioneering and, of course, delicious hors d’oeuvres, flowing champagne and specialty libations. Festivities are dedicated to supporting the theatre and education missions of Next Act Theatre.

UPAF Ride for the Arts

The UPAF Ride for the Arts is Wisconsin’s largest one-day recreational bike ride. Event proceeds ensure the 14 Member Groups can focus their time on what they do best – creating, performing, educating and inspiring.


Next Act holds general auditions for actors each year in cooperation with many other professional Wisconsin theatre companies. These auditions usually take place in early February; a specific date is chosen in December. Next Act casts its shows from these auditions, and by callbacks and readings with each show’s director.
