Act a lady
November 4 - 19, 2022

Written by Jordan Harrison

When the men of a small, Prohibition-era town decide to put on a play dressed in “fancy-type, women-type clothes,” the whole community is affected: gender lines blur, eyebrows raise, identities explode, and life is forever changed. A thoughtful and hilarious Midwestern fable about the woman in every man and the man in every woman.

Hedwig & the angry inch
March 10 - 25, 2023 

Book by John Cameron Mitchell

Music & Lyrics by Stephen Trask

Directed by Jay Gile & Shawn D Padley

Music Direction by Zach Busch

 

Brilliantly innovative, moving, and wickedly funny, Hedwig is out to set the record straight about her life, her loves, and the operation that left her with that “angry inch.” Part rock concert, part cabaret, part stand-up comedy routine, this one-of-a-kind musical proves time and again that an indomitable spirit can’t ever be tied down.

This production contains loud rock music, flashing lights, and strobe effects.

April 28 - May 13, 2023

Written by Samantha Mueller

Directed by Chris Diorio

 

After a successful premiere in Chicago in 2022, StageQ is excited to announce the Sophomore production of “Laced.” It’s the morning after the 2016 election. A gay bar in Florida has been vandalized. Three twenty-something bartenders gather to attempt to piece together the events of the night before. Fiery and poetic, Laced ferociously celebrates the spaces in which we find our truest selves and the spectrum of ways the LGBTQ community comes together in the face of hate.

This production contains loud dance music, flashing lights, and strobe effects.​
