Art & Soul Innovations proudly presents Proud Theater Sun Prairie in ‘NuQueer Reaction’, the latest theatrical production from Sun Prairie’s very own youth-driven Lesbian, Gay, Transgender, Bisexual, Queer/Questioning and Allied theater troupe. ‘NuQueer Reaction’ promises an explosive evening of original theater, spoken word, poetry, and dance written by and starring youth from in and around the Sun Prairie area, and is part of the statewide Proud Theater LGBTQ+ youth theater organization.
Proud Theater Sun Prairie uses theater and the theater arts to explore the complex and often difficult lives of the youth it serves. The innovating programming encourages youth to share their own stories through the creation of original theatrical works, which they actively present to the community at large throughout the school year. This year’s production 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, transphobia, relationships, micro-aggressions, bullying, and the world at large.
The show runs April 28 and 29, 2017 – 7 p.m. at the Sun Prairie United Methodist Church, 702 North Street, in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin. The run-time of the show is 75 minutes and will be followed by a talk-back and special meet-and-greet with the members of the Sun Prairie Troupe. Doors for ‘NuQueer Reaction’ open at 6:30 p.m., and tickets are available at the door for a suggested donation of $10 for adults and $5 for students with I.D. Reservations for the show can be made by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org. All proceeds from the show go to support Proud Theater Sun Prairie.
