Free HIV Screenings

Wed October 4 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

StageQ is excited to announce that we will be partnering with the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin (ARCW) to provide free HIV screenings prior to the Wednesday night performances of our fall musical, “Falsettos!”

Doors will open to the Bartell lobby at 5:30pm and screenings will be on a first come, first serve basis until 7pm. The show will begin soon after that at 7:30pm. Those who come to get tested are encouraged to stay for the show. Tickets are $25. Dates for the screenings are October 4th and 11th. Screenings take about 20 minutes each and will be kept confidential and private in keeping with ARCW’s high standard of client care and privacy. ARCW staff will be on hand those days to talk with attendees about HIV prevention and the new anti-HIV drug, PrEP.

During the show, “Falsettos,” one of the main characters contracts the then-deadly AIDS virus during the eruption of the HIV epidemic of the early 1980s. After fracturing, the non-traditional family in the show comes together in order to help one of their own cope with this then-unknown disease.

We couldn’t be more pleased at StageQ to have ARCW on board. They have been so supportive and just as excited about providing this service to our community as we are. In uncertain times, StageQ looks to become a safe-space to our community, queer and ally alike. With this aim, StageQ is excited to offer this service to our amazing Madison community along with the amazing story of family, love, and bravery that is “Falsettos”.
