February 11 - February 26, 2022
WISCONSIN PREMIERE

By Taylor Mac

Directed by Michael Rebekah Fleishman

After a dishonorable discharge from the military, Isaac returns home from Afghanistan, expecting to confront his abusive father, protect his mother and sister, and relax into his old bedroom. His expectations are dashed, as he walks into a different kind of chaos. Father Arnold, having suffered a stroke, has turned into a helpless, childlike creature. Mother Paige, excited by this overthrow of the patriarchy, refuses to clean, and treats Arnold like a baby. And little sister Max, having come out as transgender, has begun to grow a beard. When waning male privilege and PTSD collide with clown makeup, acceptance of gender neutrality, and radical Faerie commune dreams, the result is explosive.

Priscilla: Queen of the Desert
April 8 - April 30, 2022

Book By Stephan Elliot & Allan Scott

Directed by Jay Gile

Music Direction by Dr. J Adam Shelton

Choreography by Craig Schlagel

Based on the smash-hit movie, PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT is the heartwarming, uplifting adventure of three friends, Tick, Bernadette and Adam, a glamorous Sydney-based performing trio who agree to take their show to the middle of the Australian outback. They hop aboard a battered old bus (nicknamed Priscilla) searching for love and friendship and end up finding more than they ever imagined. With a dazzling array of outrageous hit parade of dance floor favorites including “It’s Raining Men,” “I Will Survive,” “Hot Stuff,” “Boogie Wonderland,” “Go West,” “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” and “I Love The Nightlife,” this wildly fresh and funny musical is a journey to the heart of FABULOUS!
