QUEER PROM: Back in the Closet presented by Sacred Circle Theatre Company

Sacred Circle Theatre Company presents


Back in the Closet

at Catland Books


Have you had enough of the world around you? Is being out and proud just too much work these days? Do you long for sideways glances, awkward teenage stares, and stolen forbidden kisses?


Well join Sacred Circle for our second annual Queer Prom where we will go...

Back in the Closet


A party is happening in the mystical closet of your past. Knock on the door and say "Aunt Sally is here," and be greeted by Aunt Sally herself, welcoming you back in time. As your celebrate deep amongst the forgotten relics of queer yesteryear, you will encounter two ill-fated lovers, trapped in the closet forever.


Travel back in time to awaken these statues. Come dressed as your past gayby self, a tragic closeted hero(ine), or the secret you of a bygone era, whether from 1950s lesbian pulp novels, on the shores of Fire Island, or at an underground club in Weimar Berlin. 

Dance the night away, free from judgmental eyes. Meet a new "special friend" or "close companion." Unlock these lovers from their cruel fate.


And, remember, it's a prom. The best dressed of the evening will be named Prom Closet Monarchs and be crowned with diadems handmade by Sarah Michelle Bedrick.


Featuring performances by our living statue lovers Mia Longenecker and Becca Travis

Commentary from Raymond Arnold as Aunt Sally and Denali Thomas as Lavender Violet
