Original Theatre

CONTACT THE THEATRE WITH YOUR STORIES AND THOUGHTS

THE Theatre is in the process of devising an original piece of documentary theatre about the current Political landscape in Central Wisconsin including the Black Lives Matter movement and its relationship inpredominantly white communities.
It's important to have an authentic representation of all Central Wisconsin voices and their views on the issue.

WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU:

  • Who are you supporting in the November election? 

  • If you attended a BLM Protest or counter rally

  • If you actively chose not to go to any rallies

  • If you disagree with the need for BLM events or protests

  • If you have a new understanding of BLM or your role within the movement

  • If you have become more or less politically actve than you've been in past years.
