Proud Theater Madison’s Fired Up!



Art & Soul Innovations, in collaboration with Edgewood College, presents ‘Proud Theater: Fired Up!’ – a fun and exciting evening of theater, music, spoken word, poetry and dance written by and starring the talented youth of Madison’s premier Lesbian, Gay, Transgender, Bisexual, Queer/Questioning and Allied youth theater troupe, Proud Theater. As with critically acclaimed shows ‘Fearless Hearts’ (2013), ‘Crystal Queer’ (2014) and their recent 15th anniversary show, ‘Anthology’, (2014) ‘Proud Theater: Fired Up!’ tackles many of the issues affecting youth today and does so with humor, heart and honesty.


Sometimes outrageous, sometimes profound, the youth share their voices with the community in a no-holds barred and uncensored way. This year the youth take a look at gender identity, racism, bullying, Transphobia and the world at large. ‘Proud Theater: Fired Up!’ opens May 28, 2015 at the Diane Ballweg Theater in the Stream Building at Edgewood College, 1000 Edgewood College Drive in Madison, Wisconsin, and runs through May 30 with shows at 7:30 PM. There will also be a special matinee showing on May 30 at 2:30 PM. Tickets are $12 and can be reserved via email at or by calling the Proud Theater Hotline at 608-222-9086. Tickets can be paid for only on the day of the show and must be picked up no later than 15 minutes before curtain, or the tickets will be made available for sale. The box office opens one hour before show time.


Looking forward to seeing you there!
