CUTTING ROOM FLOOR
An immersive ghost tour of the Aurora Fox, through a world of spectral regrets and paths not taken…
Join Control Group for a journey into the depths of this historic theater, as we unearth resonant histories and unnerving fictions built from the building’s past. In this haunt-inspired immersive performance, the ghosts of the Fox come alive around us… but no jump scares or splatter gore here! These lost souls are consumed by something scarier than any monster: regret, and the remembrance of lost things.

THE IMPROVISED SHAKESPEARE COMPANY
Based on one audience suggestion (a title for a play that has yet to be written) The Improvised Shakespeare Co. creates a fully improvised Shakespearean masterpiece right before your very eyes!
Nothing has been planned out, rehearsed, or written. All of the dialogue is said for the first time, the characters are created as you watch, and if ever you’re wondering where the story is going…so are they! You’ve never seen the Bard like this before!
Germinal Stage presents

Boulders’ Dinner Theatre presents
This jukebox musical features hits of the wildly popular ‘70s Swedish pop/dance group ABBA.
Sophie is ready to get married to her fiancé Sky, except for one thing – she has never met her father and wants him present for the big day. She invites three men that she discovers in her mother’s diary and believes to be candidates, but when they all arrive, Sophie’s mother Donna becomes distressed. As Sophie, Sky, Donna, her friends, and the three potential fathers prepare for the big day, emotions run high and surprises abound.
ABBA’s hits tell the hilarious story of a young woman’s search for her birth father. This sunny and funny tale unfolds on a Greek island paradise. On the eve of her wedding, a daughter’s quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother’s past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago.
The story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs propels this enchanting tale of love, laughter and friendship, creating an unforgettable show. A large cast, non-stop laughs and explosive dance numbers combine to make Mamma Mia! a smash hit first on London’s West End, then on Broadway, on national tour, and now right here in Boulder!
