Craft Production Resource
A Poem on Valentine's Day
Performed by Phil Ginsburg; Video by Rick Zahradnik
Craft Production Resource is delighted to introduce Phil Ginsburg as he performs his original work, “A Poem on Valentine’s Day.” Phil is an award-winning, nationally known performance poet and playwright. This poem and many others can be found in his recently published book, “In Pursuit of the Almost” which can be purchased thru Amazon.
Craft Production Resource will present the 6 winning new SHORT plays from the 10th annual “Our Shorts Are Showing” Playwriting Festival Competition, on October 13 and 14, at The Cottonwood Center for the Arts. Watch the plays unfold as the actors perform them Live-on-Stage and Live-on-Tape. Front row “magic”! Free parking and elevator available. Reservations are encouraged as there is limited seating.
Dragon Theatre Productions
Dragon Theatre Productions, a program of Imagination Celebration, celebrates 14 years presenting community-inclusive community theatre for the Pikes Peak Region. And for our 14th year and 20th show – this year we want to go with you to the CIRCUS!
Our team keeps adjusting, rebuilding and evolving since 2019 when we did our first musical “The Pirate Ninja Cupcake Musical” by Ariel Baty at Cupcake Island, in 2020 when we did our first show over Zoom, and last year when we did our first film in Outer Space through a fun collaboration with the Space Foundation.
Our next show is “Patching the Circus,” a new story on rebuilding created by the Dragon Theatre team. The year is 1922, the 1918 pandemic has subsided, the first World War is over, theatres are starting to reopen, and the Dragon Theatre Vaudeville Circus “Everybody’s Got Talent!” finds they no longer have a theatre, or props, or any of their old supplies to make the show go on. So they decide to share a little bit of the magic they have left to reinvent their new reality with the audience: imagination.
Campfire Theater Productions
Campfire Theater produces live theatrical productions in the great outdoors. Go play outside! Campfire Theater is proud to present the world premiere of “Promise of the Garden” this summer at Bear Creek Park Colorado Springs! We’re working hard right now to put on the best show we can for you. Hope to see you in a few months!
Theatre Across Borders
Theatreworks Colorado Springs
Lumberjacks in Love, thru October 9
‘Lumberjacks in Love’ promises a heart of gold wrapped in layers of cross-dressing, mistaken identities, romantic entanglements, high-country hijinks, and of course more flannel than Breckenridge in September. The ensuing musical madness celebrates the flannels we wear, the families we choose, and the unexpected twists that just might change everything.
Featuring actors playing their own musical instruments, it’s the best musical you’ll see about lumberjacks this year, featuring perhaps the only song you’ll ever hear about “a buncha naked lumberjacks chopping down trees.” Don’t miss out!
Millibo Art Theatre
The Millibo Art Theatre (originally the Manitou Art Theatre) was founded in 2001 by Jim Jackson and Birgitta De Pree to provide new and original live performances in an intimate, accessible theatre for audiences of all ages in the Pikes Peak region. Having performed extensively internationally and throughout the U.S., Jim Jackson and Birgitta De Pree had experienced many successful theatre models in action. They recognized the powerful impact new work can have on a community as it engages audiences in relevant dialogue, challenges and supports artists in the creation of new work and invites audience participation and community participation in entirely fresh and dynamic ways. The MAT offers the community a unique opportunity to experience the best new theatre from around the nation; provides Colorado artists with a home where they are encouraged and challenged to create new work; welcomes children and adults into the creative process through dynamic workshops with professional performing artists and brings the work outside the theatre’s walls through extensive touring and arts residencies.
Funky Little Theater Company
Funky Little Theater will showcase the short play Sheep in Wolf’s Clothing by Rebecca Gorman-O’Neill, starring Cara Pearce and Sallie Walker, and directed by Gerrie Walker-Champe. This is one of ten micro-plays written (by a Colorado playwright) for Funky’s Play Crawl. Come see all ten plays in ten different locations within walking distance of each other tomorrow October 11 in Woodland Park, and on October 12 in Old Colorado City. Funky is happy to be part of the Give Campaign Class of 2022, and will be embarking on their first touring production this December.
