About Proud Mary

Our Mission: LGBTQIA+ Advocacy through the Arts

The mission of the Proud Mary Theatre Company, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit and non-professional theatre, is to present LGBTQ+ voices and stories in Spartanburg and the entire Upstate region through theatrical plays: compelling dramas, rib-tickling comedies, campy musicals, and local original works and avant-garde pieces that celebrate diversity and acceptance. These stories and pieces are needed now more than ever.

Proud Mary Theatre Company was founded in 2017 and has won several awards from the South Carolina Theatre Association and the Southeastern Theatre Conference including Best Production, Best Actor and Best Director.

Proud Mary would not have been possible without the unwavering dedication, hard work, and relentless kindness and patience of Sandy Staggs. Proud Mary continues in his spirit, elevating LGBTQIA+ stories and performances, and dedicating ourselves to his unmatched heart and vision.
