The Arvada Center presents
The Electric Baby
February 9 – May 4, 2018
The Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities continues the 2017 – 2018 Black Box Season with the regional premiere of THE ELECTRIC BABY, directed by Rick Barbour on Friday, February 9, 2018. The Electric Baby, by Stefanie Zadravec, is a darkly comic story that combines folktales and folklore to explore the unlikely people that get you from one place to the next. The play contains strong adult language and is best enjoyed by young adults to adults. The Electric Baby continues the Arvada Center’s spring theatre season, three plays that will be performed in repertory until May. The 2017 – 2018 Theatre Season is sponsored by Lutheran Medical Center.
A folktale for adults, The Electric Baby combines magic, myth, and humor to explore devastating loss and hopeful healing. Six strangers’ lives collide after a tragic car accident, forcing them to confront the secrets, hopes, and fears that haunt their lives.
At the play’s center is a mysterious baby that glows like the moon and draws the characters together as they open their hearts and rediscover that human connection, laughter and stories shared can redeem sorrow.
Directed by Rick Barbour the cast includes Abner Genece, Kate Gleason, Emelie O’Hara, Lance Rasmussen, Jessica Robblee, and Greg Ungar.
Running in repertory with Sense and Sensibility and All My Sons, performances are Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m., with matinées on Wednesdays at 1:00 p.m. and Sunday at 2:00 p.m., through May 4, 2018.
