StageQ has openings for directors for QUEER SHORTS 9, our ninth annual shorts playfest, running June 13-21, 2014 at the Bartell Theater in Madison.

Are you Queer identified or an ally? Do you love theater?
And… Are you an experienced director who wants to participate in a fun, queer community celebration?
