This episode is all about the ground breaking and remarkable proud theater. Brian Wild about the newest show coming this December and the amazing journey that the theater has been on for the last 15 years.
Proud Theater: Anthology
Proud Theater is gearing up to celebrate 15 years with an anniversary extravaganza highlighting the best of their work over the years from all three existing Proud Theater chapters in the state of Wisconsin. A new version of the group, Proud Theater Beyond, started in Madison May of 2014 and targets young adults between the ages of 18 and 24, an underserved part of the LGBTQI and allied community. Proud Theater Beyond will be making their debut at the 15th anniversary show as part of the celebration.
The show, ‘Proud Theater: Anthology – Celebrating 15 years of Proud Theater’, will open on December 5, 2014 and run for two nights at 730PM and a special Saturday afternoon matinee at 2pm on December 6. The event will be presented at the Overture Center, 201 State Street in Downtown Madison on December 5th and 6th, 2014.
In conjunction with the shows, present and former Proud Theater members and volunteers are being invited to the December 6th, 2PM matinee for a special alumni celebration, to be followed by a reception at the Overture center before the 730PM show that evening. Community supporters, activists and sponsors are also invited.
