Venture Theatre

353 Main Avenue
De Pere, WI 54115



Venture Theatre was born out of a dream Mike Eserkaln had a few years back. That dream was to provide a place for local playwrights to showcase their talents, and to give local theatregoers an intimate venue to enjoy live productions.

Mike has owned ComedyCity, a local improv troupe, for the last several years. A published writer himself, Mike's hope is to help cultivate local talent and provide a place for them to flourish. That place is Venture Theatre. Having visited several theatres throughout the country, Mike brought together various ideas from those places, along with his own creative flair.

An ever-growing legion of writers and theatre enthusiasts meets several times a month to share their work, give feedback and provide encouragement. This band of writing hooligans, known as "Write Club," developed the first 2005/06 season of productions and continues to generate 4-5 world premiere shows each season.
