QUEENS GIRL IN THE WORLD
Come along on the misadventures of bright-eyed, brown-skinned Jacqueline Marie Butler! When Jacqueline is suddenly uprooted from her protective, middle-class lifestyle in 1950’s Queens, New York, and dropped into a progressive, predominantly-Jewish private school in Greenwich Village, comical confusion and plenty of chaos ensues. Lively and poignant—and punctuated with the irresistible sound of Motown—Queens Girl in the World tells the tale of one young woman’s journey through the fish-out-of-water feelings of adolescence, to a time of self-discovery at the onset of the Civil Rights-era’s social change.

THE GREAT GATSBY: A RADIO PLAY
Jay Gatsby, a self-made millionaire, passionately pursues the elusive Daisy Buchanan. Nick Carraway, a young newcomer to Long Island, is drawn into their world of obsession, greed and danger. Set against the glamour and excess of the Jazz Age, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s tale of triumph and tragedy brilliantly captures the disillusionment of a society obsessed with wealth and status.
This radio play adaptation of the Great American Novel captures Gatsby’s tragic pursuit of his impossible dream with original music and sound design by Zachary Andrews, performed by Andrews and Sydnee Fullmer.

THROUGH IT ALL
Colorado Ballet announces a celebratory return to live performances with its season finale Through It All at Lone Tree Arts Center. Marking Colorado Ballet’s first company performances in over a year, the dancers couldn’t be more excited to perform and share the culmination of their work and perseverance through all of the past year.
“While this year has presented unprecedented challenges, our dancers have persevered and have been back in the studios with us for the past seven weeks rehearsing in three smaller pod groups to prepare this mixed repertoire program,” stated Artistic Director Gil Boggs. “We are deeply grateful for everyone who has reached out and generously supported Colorado Ballet through these difficult times. We all know that much has been lost by the performing arts community this past year. Though we have grieved with our artists for the year of their careers which has been lost, we know that there is light at the end of this tunnel and feel incredibly blessed to be able to celebrate their return to the stage with this season finale.”
From choreography by Marius Petipa to new works choreographed by Colorado Ballet’s dancers, this program will feature a variety of repertoire including classical variations, pas de deux and contemporary ensemble pieces.
Performances will follow all health and safety guidelines, with an extremely limited amount of in-person attendance. Professionally produced live streams of each performance will be made available for those who are unable to attend in-person.
