Runaway Stage Productions - Ninsense A Men

Sacramento’s Theatre scene is so, so gay. And it’s not just because we have our very own gay theatre company. Many of the theatres in the area have put on gay-themed productions of late. And their non-LGBT stuff is usually pretty good too.

Here’s a rundown of the theatres you might want to check out when you’re in town.

The Closet Door Theatre Company

Various Locations

First there was the Lambda Players. When we moved to the Sacramento area in 2003, there was a gay theatre company called the Lambda Players. They put on a regular series of plays every year, and though they were sometimes a little amateur, we really loved having a gay theatre here. But after several location changes, the company closed down in 2011.

Our friend Rich stepped into the gap a couple years back and started up the Closet Door Theatre Company, and they now put on 3-4 shows a year. The company doesn’t yet have its own space – check their website for locations. Past productions include “The Normal Heart”, “The Little Dog Laughed”, and “The Last Sunday in June”. If you’re in town during their season, come support this great little gay theatre company.

We’ll also run down some of the other great independent theatres in the area, along with a brief explanation of why we think each one is a little light in the loafers.
