BACKSTORY YOUTH THEATRE PRODUCTIONS
We are thrilled to announce the return of our annual summer youth theatre spoof with a production of Mankind & Co.! We thought we'd be producing this fun show in 2020 but, alas, our plans were put on hold. In 2021, this show provides wonderful opportunities to laugh at the antics of nefarious (and hilarious) villains in several short stories as they vie to defeat favored Greek heroes. Run time is approximately 90 minutes, presented in two acts. Appropriate for audiences of all ages!
All performers have auditioned for their roles and are ages 9-18.
LOCATION: Broomfield Auditorium, 3 Community Park Rd.
DATES: July 9 @ 7pm and July 10 @ 2pm
Presented by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama, Inc., Englewood, CO.
Wellspring is delighted to become the permanent home of the Colorado New Musical Festival, now in its second season! Sponsored by Equinox Theatre, this festival reviews submissions of new work from artists locally and globally with a focus on bringing forward historically marginalized voices to tell new stories on stage.
Selected works, in part or in whole, are developed for publicly staged readings. Authors and composers, seeing their works interpreted by new creative teams, develop an understanding of how audiences are responding to their storytelling, how songs and dialogue are being interpreted by casts and directors, and how their work might benefit from new edits. Creative teams thrive in collaboration, seeking understanding and playing an important role in originating new characters. Audiences engage with inspiring new work, spark conversation from diverse stories, and connect through shared experience. Bring a blanket or lawn chair and join us at McIlvoy Pavillion! $10 suggested donation at the "door" for this outdoor event.
