The Arvada Center Announces the 2014 - 2015 Theater Season

Arvada CO – The Arvada Center has announced its six-play season, an impressive line-up of plays and musicals that span a range of human experiences including self-discovery, romance, humor, imagination and intrigue.  The three musical, three play package is filled with popular titles and includes two regional premieres and an ongoing collaboration with Creede Repertory Theatre.  Subscription packages range in price from $99 to $440 and are now on sale to Arvada Center subscribers and the general public.  Single tickets for the 2014-2015 theater season go on sale Monday, August 4. Subscribing donors giving at the $150 level or above by June 2 will receive a free guest voucher for each subscription. These vouchers can be used for theater performances in the 2014-15 season. Orders can be made by phone at (720) 898-7200, in person at the Arvada Center box office or online beginning April 28, at https://arvadacenter.org/on-stage/subscribe-or-renew-2014-15.

“As one of the region’s largest professional theaters, we are committed to artistic excellence and to producing inspiring work that will engage our audiences’ hearts and minds,” stated Arvada Center Executive Director, Philip C. Sneed. “As we look to the future, we must also ensure our financial sustainability, so that we can continue to provide the quality our patrons have come to expect.  For these reasons, we have decided to return to a six-play theater season instead of the seven-play schedule of the last four years. We believe this is the most financially prudent approach to ensuring quality and growth.”

Artistic Producer, Rod A Lansberry, has created a season which will once again provide audiences with the quality and variety of plays and musicals they have come to expect.  “I’m looking forward to opening our 38th season with the Tony Award® winning musical Memphis,” said Lansberry. “With two regional premieres, including an intriguing drama from one of America’s premier playwrights, along with a much-loved American comedy and a charming musical for the holidays, this season promises to entertain, challenge and enlighten our audiences.”
