By A colloborative brainchild of Perfect Harmony Men's Chorus, StageQ and Proud Theater

Directed by Tara Ayres; Music Director: Ken Fornay

StageQ, Proud Theater and Perfect Harmony Men’s Chorus are proud to announce ‘RIOT ACTS, A Commemoration of Stonewall’. RIOT ACTS will be performed July 16 through 18 on the Drury Stage of the Bartell Theatre, 113 East Mifflin Street. There will be an audience talk back after the Saturday matinee performance with the writers and cast of RIOT ACTS.

RIOT ACTS is a new and original theater work, accompanied by music of the day, and follows a core cast of characters whose lives intersect at the Stonewall Riots of 1969. On June 27-28, 1969, riots began at the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, following a routine police raid. Continuing for three days, the Stonewall Riots are commonly considered the birth of the contemporary gay rights movement in the United States.

RIOT ACTS will contain a healthy amount of comedy, satire, and community self examination, along with projected images of the time and a timeline of real events. It is a show intended to entertain and educate audiences of all ages and orientations. Perfect Harmony Men’s chorus is the recipient of a Wisconsin Arts Board Local Communities Grant for partial support of this production.
