StageQ is a not-for-profit community theatre–primarily volunteer run–whose mission is to celebrate and advance queer representation through theatre written by and about LGBTQ+ persons. StageQ was founded in 2001 in order to provide a stable home for gay and lesbian-themed plays in the broader Madison community. StageQ is a resident of the Bartell Community Theatre where we produce 3-5 productions annually. We serve as a home for queer artists to tell their stories on stage and allow queer audiences the ability to see themselves and their lives represented on stage.
