Organizational Profile

The origin of Skylight Music Theatre dates back to 1959 when legendary Milwaukee public relations man Clair Richardson pitched an idea to a friend to rent out an empty office space and produce an evening of Gilbert and Sullivan so that they could “have some fun.” That auspicious beginning was the spark that led to the creation of the Skylight Comic Opera Theatre which was housed in a converted space on Milwaukee’s Cathedral Square that had once served as an automobile garage.

That iteration of the company grew and thrived into the early 1990s, when the then retitled Skylight Opera Theatre moved into the 358-seat jewel box Cabot Theatre in Milwaukee’s Third Ward as the new tenants and owners of the Broadway Theatre Center.
