DUUversity is a UUCW Affinity group of members and friends who support diversity in the Milwaukee community by attending theatre productions that feature different cultural and ethical themes. After the performance all those who are interested, get together for dinner and stimulating conversation about the performance and its meaning for us as individuals and as members of the greater Milwaukee community.  This group is open to everyone who enjoys theatre and interesting discussion.

Read through the schedule for our season and choose the ones you would like and are able to attend.  You are responsible for purchasing your own tickets. Then before the performance let Kristin Fewel know so appropriate restaurant reservations can be made and carpooling can be facilitated, if desired.
