Milwaukee Ballet giving nearly 500 tickets away to families in 53204 zip code

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee Ballet will be giving away 490 tickets for this weekend's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream to their neighbors who live in the 53204 zip code.

This is to celebrate 49 seasons and the final show rehearsed at their 504 W. National Avenue studio.

“I couldn’t imagine a better way to thank this neighborhood for its support than to give the gift of this performance to students, teachers and families living in 53204,” said Artistic Director Michael Pink.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is Shakespeare’s classic tale, choreographed by Bruce Wells and brought to life by Milwaukee Ballet dancers, 40 children from Milwaukee Ballet School & Academy, the Milwaukee Children’s Choir and Florentine Opera Company singers.
