Carte Blanche Studios is a multi-purpose creative space that hosts gallery evenings, theatre productions, workshops, various rentals, movies, and live music. It was founded in March of 2008 by Jimmy Dragolovich, a professional actor, director and filmmaker along with his partner Adam White, who has an extensive background in small business and theater.
Dragolovich began his training at Milwaukee High School of the Arts and went on to earn a Fine Arts degree from CalArts. He has performed in numerous off-Broadway shows in New York City, and also has produced and directed a variety of short films, documentaries, and music videos for his own independent production company. Upon returning to Milwaukee Dragolovich founded Carte Blanche Studios with the goal of promoting and cultivating talent in Milwaukee’s arts community.
Adam White has performed in over 25 productions and has directed and written shows. After attending the Milwaukee High School of the Arts he went on to persue a career in business and also owns Sunshine Sounds, a sound rental business, and is co-owner of Isis Imaging, which specializes in personalized photo gifts.
What began as a tiny theatre in a loft above an antique store on 1st Street has evolved into what is now a newly renovated 65-seat theatre, gallery, and lounge on Milwaukee’s affluent 5th Street Row.
