Rita is a working-class hairdresser who wants to learn. Frank is a failed poet and professor who wants a drink. When they are thrown together, they embark on a journey that neither expected.

Elf

ELF – The Musical

November 20 – December 23, 2018

Genre: Broadway Musical, Family Friendly

One of the most beloved holiday movies in recent years is live on stage! ELF – The Musical is the uproarious tale of Buddy, who as a child, mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole where he is raised among elves. Unaware that he is actually human, Buddy’s enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to question where he came from. With Santa’s blessing, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. By spreading his unfailing holiday cheer, Buddy helps people discover the true meaning of Christmas, and finds the human family he never knew he had. This modern day Christmas classic is sure to make audiences of all ages embrace their inner Elf!

The Diary of Anne Frank

February 1 – May 17, 2019

Genre: Drama, Biographical

Thirteen-year-old Anne Frank wrote to understand herself and the horrors of being Jewish in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam. In doing so she created one of the most powerful stories of the 20th century. Her diary was the one place for privacy in her attic hiding place. It holds her fears, her hopes, her laughter, her grief. Her belief that “in spite of everything, people are truly good at heart” has moved readers for more than seventy years. In Wendy Kesselman’s adaptation we meet the full Anne; imperfect, funny, longing to become a woman and hopeful for a future she will never see.

TheMoors

The Moors

February 22 – May 18, 2019

Genre: Dark Comedy
Adult & Sexual Content

Two sisters and a depressed Mastiff dog live out their lives on the bleak English moors. The women spend their days dreaming of love and power until the arrival of a hapless governess and a moor-hen set all three on a strange and hilarious path. With the passion of a Bronte sisters’ novel, Silverman puts a modern spin on this dark comedy about love and desperation paired with a sharp sense of the absurd.

Sin Street Social Club

March 15 – May 19, 2019

World Premiere
Genre: Restoration Comedy
Adult Content

This flirty, fun, feminist comedy is a bold new take on Aphra Behn’s restoration classic, The Rover adapted by Denver playwright Jessica Austgen. Helen, a novice nun, and Florie Mae, her nightclub singing sister, have taken to the streets of 1916 New Orleans in a last-ditch effort to save their departed daddy’s dance club. The going may be rough, but the St. Claire sisters won’t let a host of dingy Storyville denizens—an overly-protective older brother, a rakish rover, and a disgruntled gangster’s moll—stand in their way as they discover their destinies and ultimately find love.

Travlin

Trav’lin – The 1930s Harlem Musical

April 9 – April 28, 2019

Regional Premiere
Genre: Musical, Jazz
Young Adult – Adult Audiences

Travel back to the Harlem Renaissance – music was swinging, bands were big, and the jazz scene continued to rise. Women embraced their independence yet still desired the convention of marriage.

A funny and heartfelt look at love, Trav’lin rediscovers the music of Harlem Renaissance songwriter J.C. Johnson. His songs were recorded by legendary artists such as Billie Holliday, Ella Fitzgerald, Louie Armstrong, Fred Astaire, Duke Ellington and Count Basie. Trav’lin is an energetic evening of 1930s jazz combined with an engaging story that will captivate audiences of all ages.
