Milwaukee Chamber Theatre

Tell Us Your Story Competition

For more than 40 years, Milwaukee Chamber Theatre has been telling great stories onstage. But this summer, we're excited to look to a new place for great stories -- YOU!

MCT Branding Brochure CoverWith our first-ever "Tell Us Your Story" Competition, we searched for true stories of 500 words or less, encouraging writers to find inspiration in this year's season theme: The Mysteries of Life. After a panel of judges reviewed the stories, we selected a winner and two finalists.

We're excited to announce that the winner of our contest is Barbara McLaughlin! Barbara won with her story "The Sin List,"  which you can read here. As our winner, Barbara will receive a free, private preview of MIRACLE ON SOUTH DIVISION STREET (before anyone else!) later this season.

In addition, we have named Imy Schley and Jacqueline Rice as our two finalists. Imy's story "Families Can Have Mysteries" can be found here, while Jacqueline's story "Cloud Nine"  can be found here. Both of them will receive two 5-play subscriptions of the 2017-18 season.

We'll be celebrating all three of our awardees during the opening night party for DEATHTRAP on Friday, August 11. For more information, call 414.276.8842.
