Romeo & Juliet
Madison College Performing Arts in Theater is committed to a diverse, inclusive, and equitable environment for all artists, at all levels of the process. Everyone, no matter their gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, age, body, sexual orientation or identity, education, or ability, is valued and respected. We strive to represent diverse heritages, life experiences, and perspectives to ensure that all stories are shared.
Madison College Performing Arts in Theater is committed to bringing socially relevant work to the professional experience and academic curriculum. Specific examples include the productions of To Kill a Mockingbird (spring 2013), Permanent Collection (spring 2014), Clybourne Park (spring 2015), The Grapes of Wrath (fall 2016) and columbinus (spring 2018). Our production of Student Body (fall 2018) focused on the pain and responsibility of sexual assault on a college campus, as well as The Empty Table (winter 2018), a devised theater project theatricalizing real stories of food insecurity and poverty on the Madison College campus. We confronted working conditions in These Shining Lives (spring 2020) and hate in The Laramie Project (spring 2021). Also during the pandemic, we were very proud to partner with Dana Pellebond, T.S. Banks, and Broom Street Theater to produce our first black theater festival “Loud & Unchained.”
