About Uprising Theatre Company
Channeling the energy and empathy created by theatre into concrete action through allowing marginalized communities to tell their own stories and through partnerships with community organizations.
Uprising tells powerful stories about important topics in a way that’s not preachy or strident, but is instead rooted in people’s lived experiences. From mental illness and suicide to transgender issues, we tell stories that come from people who have lived those experiences.
But we don’t want it to stop with just telling stories. We hope people are so inspired by stories that they want to make a concrete difference. So we partner with local organizations who are working on the issues presented in the show to funnel the energy and excitement generated by storytelling into action that will make the world a better place.
