Theatreworks Plays and Events
CURRENT PLAYS & EVENTS
Traditionally, Theatreworks presents a six-show subscription season, as well as our Free-For-All program and associated events including panels, chats, and Prologues. Our season plans for 2021-2022 will be announced later in 2021.
Prior to a season announcement, we have wonderful, in-person programming planned for May, June, and July of 2021.
- An Iliad, directed by Max Shulman and featuring one actor and one cellist for the return of our production from March 2020, outdoors at the Ent Center and virtually May 6-23,2021.
- Free-For-All: Midsummer Night’s Dream held outdoors and free of charge at community sites around the Pikes Peak region in May & June 2021.
- Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill, starring Cheerish Martin as Billie Holiday, featuring her most beloved songs, in July 2021 at the Ent Center for the Arts.
Throughout 2021, we’ll continue our virtual chat series:
- Monthly Artist Coffee and Cocktail Chats, third Wednesdays at 7p (currently limited to patrons who subscribed to the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 seasons; please reach out to email@example.com with questions)
- Monthly Directors Circle Play Club, second Thursdays at 11a (limited to members of our Directors Circle donorship giving level; please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with questions)
How did we support art and artists during the coronavirus pandemic? In March 2020-April 2021, Theatreworks employed over 130 artists on a wide variety of programs. We returned to live in-person experiences in a totally new way with The Mitten, a world-premiere 35-minute shadow puppet play, co-produced with KatyWilliams Design and JParkerArts, outdoors at the Ent Center February 19-27, 2021.
We also explored the digital world:
- virtual costume tutorials, sneak-peek videos and artist interviews, now all archived on our YouTube channel.
- full-length virtual documentary theatre House Arrest and ‘Elections at Altitude’,
- Our December Month of Joy, offering 31 nights of performance including world-premiere toy theatre commissions.
- A four-play free virtual Sunday reading series.
Thank you to our audiences and donors who supported us and the theatre community throughout this time.
