If you stop to look at the Meyer Theatre logo, you’ll notice it’s adorned with two angels. The angels are actually images taken from ornate features within the building’s architecture.angels

Now, these two angels also have names—Melissa and Emily.

The angels have been named in memory of Melissa and Emily Schmeisser, sisters from Green Bay whose lives were tragically cut short in a 2005 automobile accident. At 17 and 14 years old, respectively, the sisters loved the performing arts and participated in drama productions at Notre Dame Academy.

Parents Steve and Mickey Schmeisser are friends of the Meyer Theatre, and Steve plays an integral role in helping to manage the theatre’s accounting and finances.

As a vital part of the community, the Meyer Theatre depends on the support it receives from families like the Schmeisser’s. What better way to thank the family and to honor the memory of their beautiful daughters than to name our angels after theirs. Visit their website.
