Tenth Street Theatre

Welcome to the Tenth Street Theatre, home to In Tandem Theatre.

Our spacious 99-seat theatre has comfortable seating, air-conditioning, a large lobby with a bar, fireplace and piano, multiple restrooms, and is fully accessible. Theatre seating is unassigned - please let us know at the time of your reservation if we can accomodate a wheelchair or reserve special seating due to a medical condition.


Conveniently located in downtown Milwaukee near Marquette University and across the street from the Wisconsin Club, the Tenth Street Theatre resides in the lower level of the “big red church” (Calvary Church) on the corner of 10th and Wisconsin. We are easy to get to from the freeway and by surface streets.


In Tandem Theatre’s entrance is on 10th Street between Michigan Street and Wisconsin Avenue (note: 10th Street is one way, heading north).
