Reimagine The Magic

Help bring our New Nutcracker to Life!



About the Campaign

Milwaukee Ballet worked with 100 families and organizations to raise more than 26 million dollars to build the Baumgartner Center for DanceWe now turn our attention to continue raising funds to give back to the community and further our mission, with the creation of a new production of The Nutcracker.  

Michael Pink’s vision for a new Nutcracker combines the tradition, nostalgia and magic of today’s production, with the excitement of an expanded imaginary world. New spectacular sets, choreography and costumes will bring the vision to life!

The Design & Build

Milwaukee Ballet has engaged a team of talented, world-class designers to create sets and costumes, to produce a magical new Nutcracker.

Give Back to MKE

A continuation of the fund established during Milwaukee Ballet’s recent Capital Campaign, the Give Back to MKE fund, will further develop outreach programming around the annual production of The Nutcracker such as subsidized and reduced-cost Student Matinees, Sensory Friendly productions, and new initiatives that will bring the magic of The Nutcracker into the community through mini performances and workshops.

Legacy Fund

Funds allocated to the Legacy Fund will provide a stable and continuous source of investment income to preserve and sustain The Nutcracker and Milwaukee Ballet for generations to come.

Join in the Magic

Your gift will enable us to support not only a new production of The Nutcracker, but provide more roles and opportunities for local children to participate in the production and increase our ability to connect with our community through sensory-friendly performances and student matinees. This supports our philosophy of “ballet without boundaries”, breaking down traditional barriers so more people can experience the beauty of ballet in Milwaukee. 

Help us keep the tradition of The Nutcracker alive for generations to come. Join us and be part of the magic!
