Proud Theater Madison is back in action with an exciting new opportunity for LGBTQIA+ and allied youth between the ages of 13 and 18 to explore themselves and their identities through theater, music, dance, and spoken word in a safe, fun, welcoming, and supportive environment.
The organization will begin enrolling 13‐ to 18‐year‐old youth for their upcoming 2022‐2023 season who identify as part of the LGBTQIA+ community. Rehearsals will be held at Trinity Lutheran Church, 1904 Winnebago Street, Madison, starting Wednesday, September 14, 2022, from 5:30 ‐ 9 p.m., and run every week during the school year. Youth interested in being part of Proud Theater need only show up to rehearsals before open enrollment ends on November 16, 2022. No audition or experience is required, and snacks will be served.
Founded in 1999, Proud Theater is an award‐winning, exciting, and innovative youth theater program whose mission is ‘to change the world through the power of theater and the theater arts, and to make a positive difference in the lives of LGBTQIA+ youth through the tenets of art, heart, and activism’. Empowering and creative, Proud Theater encourages youth to share their personal stories through the creation of original theatrical works, which they then present to the community at large throughout the school year. Traditionally, the group ends each season with a culminating showcase production.
