CapitalQ Theatre Festival 2023

Written & Directed by Various Local & National Artists
Produced by StageQ

Join us for our annual Pride Month celebration when StageQ takes over both Bartell Theatre stages for one weekend to present brand new play readings, 10-minute shorts, and one-act plays by up-and-coming queer playwrights from around the country. Along with FREE workshops and masterclasses where you can learn about all aspects of theatre, we will celebrate Pride the best way we know how: highlighting new, queer voices telling their stories.
