Proud Theater-Madison Presents ‘Fearlessly Queer’

Madison, WisconsinThursday, May 4, 2017 — Art & Soul Innovations, in collaboration with Stage Q, presents ‘Proud Theater: Fearlessly Queer’ – an exciting evening of theater, music, spoken word, poetry and dance written by and starring the talented youth of Proud Theater Madison, the city’s premier Lesbian, Gay, Transgender, Bisexual, Queer/Questioning and Allied youth theater troupe.

‘Proud Theater: Fearlessly Queer’ opens May 25, 2017, at the Bartell Theatre, 113 East Mifflin Street, in Madison, Wisconsin, and runs through May 27 with shows at 7:30 p.m. There will also be a special matinee showing on May 27 at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 for Adults and $10 for students with ID and can purchased in advance by calling the Bartell Theatre Box Office at (608) 661-9696, or by visiting the Bartell Theatre Ticket Page at bartelltheatre.org. Tickets can also be purchased at the door before each show.

As with acclaimed shows ‘Anthology’, (2014), ‘Fired Up!’ (2015), and ‘Sky Full of Stars’ (2016), ‘Fearlessly Queer’ tackles many of the issues affecting young people 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, politics, body image, transphobia, and the world at large.

Proud Theater is a program of Art and Soul Innovations (artandsoulinnovations.org), and enjoys generous financial support from the Mukti Fund, The LaForce Family Foundation, By Youth For Youth, and from many other community organizations around the state. Trinity United Methodist Church hosts the organization throughout the rehearsal season.  This will be Proud Theater’s 6th collaboration with Stage Q since 2005.
