About the Miller High Life Theatre

Miller High Life Theatre (originally Milwaukee Auditorium) was extensively renovated between 2001 and 2003. It seats 4,086 people and can be configured into a more intimate venue that seats 2,500. The Milwaukee Auditorium was built in 1909, in a place formerly occupied by the Milwaukee Industrial Exposition Building. The cornerstone was laid on August 1, 1908, and the building was dedicated on September 21, 1909. Historical uses include concerts, circuses, political rallies and sports events. For decades the Milwaukee Auditorium boasted its own orchestra, and hosted touring concerts from such historic notables as John Phillip Sousa and Enrico Caruso.Sitting Presidents from Taft to Clinton delivered important policy addresses in the Auditorium.  Beginning in October 2001, the Auditorium was converted into a theater. The project, which cost $41.9 million, was completed on November 7, 2003. Since opening, The Milwaukee Theatre has hosted a wide range of convention, corporate, religious and political assemblies as well as Broadway musicals and other entertainment ranging from the Radio City Rockettes to the Milwaukee premier of Disney’s THE LION KING.
