Drop Off- Parents should drop off their children at the front of The Pabst Theater, 144 East Wells Street. Parent volunteers will wait in front of the theater to greet your child(ren). Therefore, there's no need to park your car at this time.

Drop off your child at 5:00 p.m. Please do not be late, as this may preclude your child(ren) from participating in the event. Dress rehearsal will begin promptly at 5:30 p.m.

Dinner Information- The Milwaukee Children's Choir will provide a simple dinner for the kids and parent volunteers: assorted sandwiches, chips, fruit, and bottled water. Parents of choristers with allergies or food restrictions are encouraged to pack their child(ren) a dinner.

Parking- Families who are attending a concert at The Pabst Theater for the first time, please visit their webpage or click HERE for information about parking.

Pick Up- Regardless of whether you are attending the performance, please pick up you child(ren) from the rotunda that connects the Intercontinental Hotel, The Rep, and The Pabst Theater.

If you are seeing the show, please just wait in the first-floor rotunda for your child(ren). If you will not be in the audience, we must ask you to park and wait for your child inside the rotunda for safety and logistical ease.

We estimate that by 9:45 p.m., the audience will have cleared, and we will then travel to the rotunda to meet parents.

If there are any emergencies during pick up, please call or text Darcie at 608-216-6181.
