Beyond the Ingenue: Trailblazers Preview

Friday, Oct 9, 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Join Music Theatre of Madison for a special online preview of Beyond the Ingenue: Trailblazers.

Women deserve better stories! In this second iteration of Beyond the Ingenue, Music Theatre of Madison looks at women from history who paved a path for greatness for women to come, illuminating their stories through original musical theatre songs by local composers, performed by local singers. 

Hear songs about climate change activist Greta Thunberg, pioneering pilot Amelia Earhart, and more trailblazers from history. Learn about their lives and achievements through short videos, enjoy the songs, and participate in a discussion with the composers and performers about the importance of telling more complex womens' stories in musical theatre and other mediums. After viewing selections from the show, audience members are encouraged to participate in a virtual talk back with the creative team. Type in your questions about what it takes to create new theatre, share how the songs made you feel, or join in the discussion about what female representation means to you.
