Programs: In 2014, bedlam produced 10 major mainstage productions including queertopia, the beast, the big lowdown, kaboom, you, aka:fathers/sons, beaverdance, and three disntict short town showoffs. Additional programming included the continuation of the outdoor concert series "collective noise", the theatre craft education program "technical tools of the trade", and the scenic design work of "bedlam for hire".

The Bedlam has really grown by leaps and bounds over the past few years. It is unique in its community focus and support of theater, music, and performing arts that some might consider a bit out of the ordinary. I am proud that Minneapolis is home to such a unique and wonderful organization!
