William Shakespeare’s TWELFTH NIGHT

November 15th – December 22nd

The Space Theatre

Hilarious hijinks. Unrequited love. Gender-bending disguises. The struggle is real in this Shakespearean comedy, where the clumsiness of romance is on display in every way. Separated from her twin brother after a shipwreck in Illyria, Viola disguises herself as a man to work in the local household of Duke Orsino. The closer they become, the more Viola gets acquainted with Orsino’s crush, the beautiful noblewoman Olivia. Much to their dismay (and to your delight), the trio is inevitably thrust into a love triangle of mistaken identity and wanton foolishness.

Overflowing with quick wit and titillating trysts, this standout play by The Bard is sure to please with its captivating characters and one of his most dynamic heroines.

LITTLE WOMEN

November 8th – December 29th

Parker, CO

Kristin Laurence’s frequently performed adaptation of the novel Little Women features an eight-member all female cast and takes us through a portion of Alcott’s novel from the introduction of the March sisters to the return of their father from the war as Beth’s health begins to fail her. We see them learn to become independent, work their way through the perils of navigating society as young women, and most importantly, take care of one another through multiple joys and sorrows. Above all else, we learn to appreciate Jo’s sentiments expressed in the novel – “I could never love anyone as I love my sisters”.

THE THANKSGIVING PLAY

November 2nd – December 15th

Ah, Thanksgiving, that most American of holidays: when families gather to bask in the bounty of the harvest, football, giant balloons — and a legacy of genocide and violent colonial expansion. Good intentions collide with absurd assumptions in this wickedly funny satire as a troupe of terminally “woke” teaching artists trip all over themselves to create a politically correct, yet historically accurate, yet dramatically revolutionary, yet accurately represented and responsibly cast Thanksgiving play for elementary schools…all the while navigating aspirations to be successful actors – but not commercially successful – and overall unproblematic white people.

Vintage Theatre Productions presents

LOOPED

November 1st – December 15th

Aurora, CO

Based on real events, “Looped takes place in the summer of 1965, when Tallulah Bankhead needed to redub – or loop – one line of dialogue for what would be her final movie. What starts out as a friendly visit to the studio quickly dissolves into a hilarious battle of wits and wills between the divine diva and the film’s editor.

And Toto Too presents
