Book by Jon Hartmere, Jr., and Damon Intrabartolo Lyrics by Hartmere, Music by Intrabartolo
Soulstice proudly presents the Wisconsin professional premiere of BARE: A POP OPERA,
a contemporary rock musical that follows a group of five high school seniors in a co-ed Catholic boarding school
as they struggle to understand their identity, sexuality, and religion.
Knowing their stay in this insular world is drawing to a close, each of these characters in turn questions
where they are in their lives and what the future holds in store. Answers are sought in the church confessional
as readily as on a stage, at a rave, and in a well-locked dorm room.
The story zooms in on the love relationship between two boys: Peter, a socially awkward loner, and Jason, the "golden boy" popular jock.
We see them struggle to keep their relationship alive and hidden, and how their love affects their friends and the people around them. Meanwhile, their peers confront unrequited affection, strained relationships with family, battles with body image,
desires to be more than a label placed on them by society… the need to lay their secrets bare and just be who they truly are,
regardless of others’ opinions. These struggles take their toll, and young lives are irrevocably altered in the aftermath.
Performances for BARE are on Fridays & Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., and on Sundays at 2:00 p.m.

Why did Beethoven write 33 variations
on "an insignificant little waltz” when
his publisher, Diabelli, wanted just one?
Musicologist Dr. Katherine Brandt, beset by
her own challenges with an insidious disease,
is driven to discover an answer.
