If you are with one of Wisconsin's many and varied theater, dance or comedy companies or schools and would like to have information about your group, your season, auditions, classes, workshops, or job openings on the site, I'd be delighted to hear from you. To get an idea of what other groups are submitting, glance through the site...

For each group, I create a page with a short description of the group and a list of shows in their current and/or upcoming seasons. This page could also contain information about annual meetings, volunteer opportunities, and so forth. Each show also has a page listing the title, author, director, description, venue, production dates, ticket information, audition information, etc. These are all cross referenced and linked to the Calendar page and the Theater Groups or Dance Groups pages.

How much does it cost?

There is no charge to have your information appear here, although contributions will be gratefully applied toward operating expenses and publicity for the site. We also have opportunities for sponsors to advertise theater, dance or comedy-related organizations on the site. Please contact us at webmaster@madstage.com for more information.

If you'd like to help spread the word, please tell your friends about us, include our URL in your season brochure and programs, and add a link to it if you have a web site of your own!
