*CapitalQ Theatre Festival is made possible by contributions from Jim Hartman’s State Farm Agency and the New Harvest Foundation.

StageQ is proud to present the inaugural “CapitalQ Theatre Festival.” A fresh, new spin on the perennial favorite, “Queer Shorts,” this festival runs a single weekend and is filled with new and original short plays and 1-Act Plays submitted from local and national playwrights. Along with FREE theatre workshops and masterclasses open to the public, this weekend will celebrate original queer stories told by up-and-coming queer writers and allow you to learn more about how theatre is made. Be a part of a new Pride Month tradition!

All performances will last about 60 minutes.

ALL MASTERCLASSES & WORKSHOPS ARE FREE!!! – NO TICKET NEEDED
