Gadfly Theatre Productions is gearing up for a third season of the queer, querulous GLBTQ* and feminist art you've come to know and love.
Gadfly Theatre Productions combines GLBT, feminist, and experimental art to create work that is uniquely universal. The troupe provides an artistic haven for audiences and artists alike, a place to explore, create, and open safe dialogues about GLBT and feminist issues. The company also zeroes in on inequities that queer and new artists face, providing one-of-a-kind opportunities for self-expression and exploration. Gadfly breaks binaries and establishes community, seeking to prove that all persons on the spectrum deserve a voice, a stage, and a story they can relate to. Gadfly Theatre Productions, rooted in Minneapolis and led by Cassandra Snow and Immanuel Elliott, produces four shows per year, with audiences coming from all walks of life to see the company's work.
Gadfly is growing steadily in both size and reputation, but we need some help to maintain this growth and get our uniquely universal performances seen by as many rockin' audience members as possible. With your donation we'll be able to rent space, pay artists, and cover the miscellaneous costs of shows as well as employ new and unique marketing techniques. Additionally, donating makes YOU a Gadfly by Association. GBA's are privy to insider info, promotional space on our website in our social media marketing and are able to request post-performance discussions to learn more about the queer, feminist, or artistic issues presented in our pieces. Plus, who doesn't love a tax deduction?
Our Rockin' Manifesto, For Your Perusal:
We shout the unspeakable + present the unpopular ...
The Queer. The Querulous. The uncomfortable Questions.
We pair ancient texts with rising talents,
And aspiring creatives with established icons.
There are no small roles, only small actors.
There are no small voices, only small minds.
We're building a playground for the Obscure, the Oppressed,
and the unapologetically Original.
Bring your best. Do your worst.
Create a catastrophe. Make it cathartic.
We invite you to be Dangerous, onstage & off,To share your story, as only you can,
With liberty and justice for arts.
