Girls Only-The Secret Comedy of Women

Girls Only is an original comedy that celebrates the honor, truth, humor and silliness of being female. With a two-woman cast and audiences full of raucous, laughing women, the show has found quick popularity in its unique examination of all things girly.

Born out of the earnest and sweetly ridiculous writings the two authors discovered in their girlhood diaries, the GIRLS ONLY mix of sketch comedy, improvisation, audience participation, and hilarious songs and videos will remind you that underneath, women all have very funny and very charming feminine similarities.

We encourage women to come and bring their mothers, daughters, sisters and girlfriends. We promise you’ll leave laughing, ready to dig out your old diary.

Warning: This show contains feminine subject matter including teenage diaries, breast feeding, tampons, shadow puppets, pantyhose, menstrual cycles, slumber parties, menopause and maxi pads.

Something Rotten!

With 10 Tony Award nominations including Best Musical, Something Rotten! is a “big, fat hit!” (New York Post). Set in the ’90s — the 1590s — this hilarious smash tells the story of Nick and Nigel Bottom (Tony nominee Rob McClure and Broadway’s Josh Grisetti), two brothers who are desperate to write their own hit play while the “rock star” Shakespeare (Tony nominee Adam Pascal) keeps getting all the hits. When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world’s very first MUSICAL! With its heart on its ruffled sleeve and sequins in its soul, Something Rotten! is “The Producers Spamalot + The Book of Mormon. Squared!” (New York Magazine).

Macbeth

 This is not a conventional staging of Macbeth. This highly-visual, all-maleproduction sets Shakespeare’s plot and language in a ritualized world including stylized violence, minimal costuming (including exposed skin), some sexual content and pulsating music. It also contains theatrical fog/haze, strobe lighting effects, sudden loud noises and e-cigarettes.

Intelligence can only get you so far when it comes to navigating love, success and identity in the modern age. This biting comedy follows a quartet of Harvard intellectuals struggling to understand why the lives of so many people – including their own – continue to be undermined by race. But no matter how hard they research, question and confront the issue, their own problems with self-awareness make it difficult to face the facts of life. Fiercely clever dialogue and energetic vignettes keep the laughs coming in a story that Variety calls “Sexy, serious and very, very funny.”

Lauded as a “powerfully smart writer” (The New York Times), Playwright Lydia R. Diamond’s multi-award-winning plays have been produced throughout the country, including the 2011 Tony Award-nominated Broadway production Stick Fly.  DirectorNataki Garrett is the Associate Artistic Director for the DCPA Theatre Company.

Something Rotten!

With 10 Tony Award nominations including Best Musical, Something Rotten! is a “big, fat hit!” (New York Post). Set in the ’90s — the 1590s — this hilarious smash tells the story of Nick and Nigel Bottom (Tony nominee Rob McClure and Broadway’s Josh Grisetti), two brothers who are desperate to write their own hit play while the “rock star” Shakespeare (Tony nominee Adam Pascal) keeps getting all the hits. When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world’s very first MUSICAL! With its heart on its ruffled sleeve and sequins in its soul, Something Rotten! is “The Producers Spamalot + The Book of Mormon. Squared!” (New York Magazine).

Macbeth

This is not a conventional staging of Macbeth. This highly-visual, all-maleproduction sets Shakespeare’s plot and language in a ritualized world including stylized violence, minimal costuming (including exposed skin), some sexual content and pulsating music.

Intelligence can only get you so far when it comes to navigating love, success and identity in the modern age. This biting comedy follows a quartet of Harvard intellectuals struggling to understand why the lives of so many people – including their own – continue to be undermined by race. But no matter how hard they research, question and confront the issue, their own problems with self-awareness make it difficult to face the facts of life. Fiercely clever dialogue and energetic vignettes keep the laughs coming in a story that Variety calls “Sexy, serious and very, very funny.”

Lauded as a “powerfully smart writer” (The New York Times), Playwright Lydia R. Diamond’s multi-award-winning plays have been produced throughout the country, including the 2011 Tony Award-nominated Broadway production Stick Fly.  DirectorNataki Garrett is the Associate Artistic Director for the DCPA Theatre Company.

WAGNER Siegfried Idyll 
SIBELIUS Violin Conerto in D minor, Op. 47
MOZART Symphony No. 41 in C major, K. 551, "Jupiter"

This convivial concert brims with music as a celebration of life. Mozart’s final Symphony No. 41 — also known as “Jupiter” — is jubilant and vibrantly atmospheric, and was deemed by Woody Allen as something that makes “life worth living.” Wagner drew upon birdsong and sunrise to honor the birth of his son and namesake of the bucolic Siegfried Idyll, which is followed by violinist Karen Gomyo glorifying Sibelius’ decadent and gleaming Violin Concerto in D minor.

Love Letters

Two actors, one stage, and a love story spanning fifty years. Set in an intimate setting with simple staging, Love Letters takes you on a journey of every emotion from joy to sorrow. Andrew Makepeace Ladd III wrote his first letter to Melissa Gardner to tell her she looked like a lost princess. They were both seven years old. For the next fifty years, through personal triumphs and despair, through wars and marriages and children and careers, they poured out the secrets of their hearts to each other. They defied a fate that schemed to keep them apart, and lived—through letters—for the one most meaningful thing, their undying love for each other. Written by A.R. Gurney (SylviaThe Dining Room), Love Letters is a tender, funny, and nuanced examination of the shared nostalgia, missed opportunities, and deep closeness of two lifelong, complicated friends.

Love Letters

Two actors, one stage, and a love story spanning fifty years. Set in an intimate setting with simple staging, Love Letters takes you on a journey of every emotion from joy to sorrow. Andrew Makepeace Ladd III wrote his first letter to Melissa Gardner to tell her she looked like a lost princess. They were both seven years old. For the next fifty years, through personal triumphs and despair, through wars and marriages and children and careers, they poured out the secrets of their hearts to each other. They defied a fate that schemed to keep them apart, and lived—through letters—for the one most meaningful thing, their undying love for each other. Written by A.R. Gurney (SylviaThe Dining Room), Love Letters is a tender, funny, and nuanced examination of the shared nostalgia, missed opportunities, and deep closeness of two lifelong, complicated friends.

Love Letters

Two actors, one stage, and a love story spanning fifty years. Set in an intimate setting with simple staging, Love Letters takes you on a journey of every emotion from joy to sorrow. Andrew Makepeace Ladd III wrote his first letter to Melissa Gardner to tell her she looked like a lost princess. They were both seven years old. For the next fifty years, through personal triumphs and despair, through wars and marriages and children and careers, they poured out the secrets of their hearts to each other. They defied a fate that schemed to keep them apart, and lived—through letters—for the one most meaningful thing, their undying love for each other. Written by A.R. Gurney (SylviaThe Dining Room), Love Letters is a tender, funny, and nuanced examination of the shared nostalgia, missed opportunities, and deep closeness of two lifelong, complicated friends.

A Kantorei Christmas

"...One of Denver's foremost choirs...the full-bodied sound of the choir was stunning.” –The Scen3

Kantorei returns to the Arts Center after their sold-out holiday concert in 2016.  Kantorei, or singers, formed in 1997 under the leadership of six friends who decided to form a choir capable of singing a broad range of a cappella choral music. Now in its 21st full season of performing, the group has expanded into an auditioned ensemble of more than 50 volunteer singers under the direction of Artistic Director Joel M. Rinsema. From a mesmerizing rendition of "Silent Night" to the jubilant "Sleigh Ride," Kantorei celebrates the season with a special performance of holiday favorites.
