Benefit Wednesdays

Benefit Wednesdays

Benefit Wednesday Previews allow the theatre program a chance to do something good for the Platteville community. For the suggested donation price of $6, audiences can help the people of Platteville by supporting the great work done by the Platteville Food Pantry and other local community organizations. These previews give people an opportunity to see quality theatre while also giving back to the community. What could be better than that!  Since 2010, with the help of our audiences, the theatre program has raised more than $6000 for local organizations!

This year, in addition to the Platteville Food Pantry, Pioneer Players will donate the proceeds to Wisconsin Badger Camp.

Benefit Wednesday Performances

  • Stupid F***ing Bird: October 12 at 7:30pm
  • Streetcar Named Desire: November 30 at 7:30pm

**There are NO Benefit Wednesday previews for How to Succeed in Business or the One Act Festival. However, a percentage of the proceeds from those performances goes to the community organizations.

Stage Reading Series

From time to time, Pioneer Players selects an important topic to highlight in our stage reading series.  Each performance in our stage reading series includes a talkback, encouraging the community to discuss the important issues highlighted by the reading.  All proceeds from these readings go to benefit a UW-Platteville student organization. In 2010, the Pioneer Players stage reading of The Laramie Project: 10 Years Later raised $1,000 for UW-Platteville's Alliance. In December 2013, UW-Platteville staff and faculty raised $500 for Engineers Without Borders with a special stage reading of A Christmas Carol.
