Historical Note:

Sari Szekely formed the Matinee Club of Milwaukee in 1953 with 8 charter members.  Its aim was to promote wider attendance at the local theaters, especially in the afternoons.  Scheduled luncheons preceded each matinee sometimes offering a chance to meet some of the performers who were invited to attend.  The club also continued its support of the theater by awarding two or three scholarships to pupils interested in theater.
