Friend student cast members are invited to assist Milwaukee Ballet's Development Department in funding efforts for the Angel Program, which allows academic students attend The Nutcracker Student Matinees at reduced rates.
During intermission at each show (except for student matinees and sensory-friendly performance), Friends remain in full costume and make-up to collect cash donations from audience members in the Marcus Center atrium/lounge. Friend cast members will have angel ornaments to give to those who make a donation to the Angel Program. While the suggested donation is $20, audience members can donate any amount they desire.
Friend student cast members can sign up to volunteer for as many performances as they choose within their cast.
The time listed below is the performance start time. The 20-minute intermission will be after Act I, which is approximately 47 minutes long.
Friends will be overseen by development staff; no parent volunteers are needed.
