“This season our three Main Stage musicals look at the magic of dance, music, and art,” said Rod Lansberry, Producing Artistic Director of Musicals. “Each production will bring the high quality and fresh originality that continues to make the Arvada Center unique.  Our musical theatre selections are One Singular Sensation after another."

 “We’re excited to step into our second season with an artistic ensemble and plays in repertory,” said Lynne Collins, Artistic Director of Plays. “This season in the Black Box is all about secrets. These four plays hilariously, theatrically, magically and tragically explore secrets kept and secrets revealed. Our acting and design Ensemble will continue the conversation with our audiences as we share these four very different stories that span three centuries, showcase four very different acting and design styles, introduce two regional premieres, and present just the right balance of laughter and tears.”
