“Life without da arts is like Lake Winnebago without walleye. So go get the WD40 out of the garage and spray it on your wallet real quick so that credit card falls out. Then use that sucker to support da arts!”
–Charlie Berens, comedian and past Weill Center performer

“What a beautiful building and theater. I can remember coming to see movies here when I was growing up. The renovation is remarkable. As a fan of architecture, it's just great to see this theater restored to its original beauty. How could I not want to do my part to preserve a part of this area's history!” –Dave Kramer, volunteer and member
"Brittany's School of Dance is full of many dedicated dancers who either look forward to someday performing on the stage at the Weill Center, or who have loved performing there countless times over the past several years. One of the most rewarding parts of putting on a production at this incredibly special venue is seeing the students' hard work, excitement, and love of dance come to life! In these times we are currently living, it is even more important than ever to support the arts so that we can continue to provide opportunities for growth and experiences for the young members of our community. To provide them with an escape from daily stresses and give them something positive and exciting to look forward to and to focus on, is truly a priceless gift!" –Brittany Thomas of Brittany's School of Dance
In this time of uncertainty, there's a fundamental truth that gives us hope - together we can do extraordinary things. On behalf of artists, performers, dancers, comedians, Weill Center board of directors and staff - thank you for your generosity and support of arts and entertainment. #TogetherWeGive #SupportLocal
