Proud Theater Wausau presents 'The Laramie Project' by Moises Kaufman and the Tectonic Theater Project, presented at the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Wausau, 504 Grant St. in Wausau, WI Friday and Saturday February 7 and 8, 7PM. The show is being produced as a fundraiser for Proud Theater-Wausau. A silent auction and bake sale will accompany the event, and all proceeds will go toward supporting Wausau's chapter of Proud Theater. A suggested donation of $10 dollars will be collected at the door to help support the organization.
'The Laramie Project' explores one of the most seminal moments in the LGBTQI civil rights movement, and is widely considered one of the most important and influential works of our time. On October 7, 1998, a young gay man named Matthew Shepard was discovered bound to a fence in the hills outside Laramie, Wyoming – savagely beaten and left to die in an act of brutality and hate that shocked the nation. While Matthew Shepard's death opened up a national dialogue about intolerance, for the people of Laramie the event was deeply personal. Over 200 interviews were conducted, and the results can be heard loud and clear in this stunningly effective theatrical piece. Time Magazine calls The Laramie Project "A pioneering work and a powerful stage event" and the New York Times declares the show to be "Deeply moving....this play is OUR TOWN with a question mark, as in 'Could this be our town?'
The Gay Straight Veterinary Alliance (GSVA) is hosting its annual drag show this Friday, December 6, 8PM, at Five Nightclub located at 5 Applegate Court in Madison, Wisconsin. All proceeds from this year’s show are going to benefit Proud Theater. The cover charge is $5 at the door, but tips for the performers are encouraged!!! People 18 and up are welcome due to the adult nature of the show, however those under 18 must be accompanied by a legal guardian or parent in order to enter.
The GSVA (Gay Straight Veterinary Alliance) is an independent student organization that strives to promote awareness and acceptance of all individuals associated with the UW’s School of Veterinary Medicine. The GSVA has been around since 2007, and this year is their 4th annual drag show. While proceeds from the event have in previous years gone to assist the AIDS Network’s pet food pantry, this will be the first year Proud Theater is spotlighted. As in the past, the show promises to be a rollicking fun evening of adult music, dance and drag performances.
Please join is there!
