Birdland Theater is proud to present Queering The Stage: Introducing Ring of Keys, which will take place on Thursday, November 15 at 9:45pm.

Ring of Keys, making its Birdland debut, is a national network of queer women+, trans, and gender non-conforming professional artists working on and offstage in musical theatre. Queering The Stage is a celebration of Ring of Keys Members - aka “Keys” - and their work. Audiences can expect to hear gender identity and sexuality norms turned on their heads - queering songs, characters, and the stage! Backed by a 3-piece band, Queering The Stage is an opportunity to create visibility at the intersection of gender identity, sexuality, and musical theatre. Ring of Keys strives to kick (ball-change) the closet door open to create a vibrant, diverse musical theatre landscape for the future.

This evening is directed by Janelle Lawrence. Music direction by Anessa Marie, featuring Rebecca Marquardt on guitar and Lindsey Augusta Mercer (Hundred Days) on drums. Stage management by Laura Malseed (Afterglow). Produced by Jenn Maley (Be More Chill, Indecent) and Andrea Prestinario.
