Miners Alley Playhouse presents
January 26 – March 4, 2018
Miners Alley presents the Regional Premiere of FUN HOME (Music by Jeanine Tesori, Book & Lyrics by Lisa Kron, Based on the graphic novel by Alison Bechdel) January 26th through March 4th, 2018. When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile, brilliant, one-of-a-kind man whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life. Moving between past and present, Alison relives her unique childhood playing at the family’s Bechdel Funeral Home, her growing understanding of her own sexuality, and the looming, unanswerable questions about her father’s hidden desires.
Director Len Matheo and Musical Director Mitch Samu has cast Susannah McLeod (Adult Alison), Abigail Kochevar (Medium Alison), Sophie Dotson (Small Alison), Hazel Kachline (Small Alison Understudy), Rory Pierce (Bruce), Heather Lacy (Helen), Chloe McLeod (Joan), Marco Robinson (Roy/Mark/Pete/Bobby Jeremy), Jack Eller (Christian Bechdel) and Brody Lineaweaver (John Bechdel).
Based on Alison Bechdel’s best-selling graphic memoir, Fun Home’s beautiful and compelling score made history when Tesori and Kron became the first female writing team to win the Tony Award for Best Original Score. It is the first Broadway musical with a lesbian lead character and covers themes of realization, forgiveness and empowerment, sexuality and mental health. Colorado’s Beth Malone was nominated for a Tony Award for her work in this groundbreaking musical in the role of Alison Bechdel.

Performances are Thursday, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m; Sundays at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are available by calling 303-935-3044 or online at www.minersalley.com.
