Our History


Encore opened its doors on September 6th, 2000. Only weeks later on October 14th, Encore premiered it’s first production, “Not Stubborn… Not Strong-Willed” at the world-class Monona Terrace convention center to an uproarious standing ovation. It’s been full steam ahead ever since. Encore has since traveled all over the state of Wisconsin and beyond with a full performance schedule. The original work Encore has produced has garnered local, regional, and national attention. With a troupe of 15 actors and 4 staff, Encore has produced 30+ original works to date, with many more to come.
