Fall Theater Preview: The show must (well, maybe) continue

The curtain rises. (Or the laptop is warmed up and connected to a properly sized monitor.) The audience gathers together, wearing masks, face to face. (Or sitting at home with feet on the coffee table and no agreement to track.)

Combining face-to-face and virtual products, the drama season this fall will look different-but much better than 2020. (At least at the time of writing, because it still feels a bit fragile.)

Here are some products that will be available in theaters or online in the coming weeks.

(Note: These are the latest updates to shows with the latest theater agreements; all content is subject to change. Please check the requirements for each theater.)

Arvada Center

Marco Robinson and Adriane Leigh Robinson rehearsed the first main stage musical at the Arvada Center in more than a year, “I do! I do!” (provided by the Arvada Center)

The musical played “I do! I do!” with the marriage of the two, who followed Agnes and Michael through 50 years of marital happiness, and then some. Favorite fact: Carol Burnett and Rock Hudson starred on the national tour in 1973. “I’m glad we can spend this time together”, indeed. (September 10 to October 10)

The black box in the center opens with AR Gurney’s comedy “Sylvia”, which is about love, marriage and a dog (not necessarily in this order). (October 1st to November 7th) Arvada

Before departure: All public places need to wear a mask. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided.

Aurora Fox Art Center

Before “One Hundred Days,” Fox had been touting the creative team that would bring musicals to the intimate stage-and for good reason. Director Nick Sugar and music director David Nehls combined Fox’s exciting “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” together. Of course, this autobiographical love story created by the new folk duo Bengsons (Abigail and Sean) and Sarah Gancher (Sarah Gancher) is another beast, but Sugar and Nehls will surely shock their intimacy , Joyful and irritable moments. (September 16th to October 10th)

Different intimacy, different swing, different duo, and duel pianist Barton Brothers’ “Playing My Memory: Tribute to Billy Joel and Elton John” launched the Fox cabaret series. (October 15-17)

Before departure: Customers who have not been vaccinated should wear masks in the building and throughout the performance. Customers who are vaccinated after sitting can choose to wear a mask.

This clever creative team-emphasizing “wise”-stayed strong during the worst period of 2020, placing talkative grasshoppers in their parking lot and later providing the same (safe) space for other theater companies. This fall, Buntport will bring “Cabaret De Profundis: Or How To Sing while Ugly Crying” into his beloved black box, which is loosely based on Caria’s Artemisia II (continue to find). (October 28th-November 13th)

Prior to this, the company will hold some one-off events in the parking lot: The Great Debate (September 14), “Narrators: Inside Out”. (September 15) and “Sausage and Skewers” (September 25). In response to the challenges of 2020, Buntport has formulated a “whatever it takes” policy for this year’s show. It is also opening its theaters to other arts groups, giving priority to those who work for historically underrepresented communities for free.

Before departure: Outdoor activities need… a chair. (You thought we would say “masks.” Please continue to pay attention to the indoor agreement.


The Boulder-based ace company kept the theater running during difficult times, most recently in the “land of milk and honey” in the summer. Now, the costumes labeled “Adventure Palette Theater” will go to Aurora and the People’s Building in East Colfax in early November, when Amy Staats’ Eddie and “Eddie and Dave” (Eddie and Dave) will premiere in the region. The championship titles are rock singers Eddie Van Halen and David Lee Roth. This may be enough to entice you, but there is more: this gender adjustment contemplates friendships about troubles, awesome musical talents and acting actors play male roles, male roles. (November 6-21)

Before departure: Catamounts follows the Denver Center COVID-19 protocol. see below.
