The Third Annual UpStage Stigma

UpStage Stigma is a show in which performers of all kinds share experiences of human struggle on stage. In previous years we have had singers, dancers, speakers, storytellers, novel readings, instrumentalists, monologues, theatre pieces, slam poets, bands and more.

Performances: May 17, 2019
Doors at 7:30 PM, Show at 8:00 PM
Ticket Prices: Suggested donation of $10. Proceeds benefit Assertive Community Treatment

Auditions will be held on the following days:
Auditions are at Maven Vocal Arts, 1951 Winnebago Street, Madison, WI 53704, starting at 7:00 PM on February 15 and 3:00 PM on February 16. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions, or to sign up. (Do not contact Maven Vocal Arts)
Pieces should be 3-15 minutes in length; both original work and cover work will be considered. A main goal of our show is to reduce the stigma of mental illness, but we welcome pieces that depict any or many (intersectional) stigmatized identities or life challenges.
"We are more alike than different; we are all more human than otherwise."
