Summaries for Plays in  THEATRE NIGHT OUT!

Spotlight Theatre presents Showtune: Celebrating the Words & Music of Jerry Herman
We are welcomed to the world of Jerry Herman, one of the Golden Age of Broadway’s pre-eminent tunesmiths.  Composer and lyricist for some of Broadway’s greatest shows, Showtune is sure to please audiences young and old alike with witty lyrics set to iconic tunes from shows that include Hello, Dolly!, Mame, and La Cage aux Folles .

Show time – Sunday, September 19, 6:30 p.m. John Hand Theater, 7653 E. 1st Place in Denver. www.thisisspotlight.org


Denver Victorian Playhouse presents the regional premiere of Woman and Scarecrow
Woman, mother of eight and wife to a faithless husband, lies in pain on snowy pillows. Around her stalks Scarecrow, a sharp-tongued female.  Ominous sounds emanate from the wardrobe. There’s something nameless and nasty in there, and soon Woman must surrender to it. Marina Carr’s play is partly a black comedy charting a passionate life stifled in a provincial Ireland.

Show Time – Friday, October 15, 7:30 p.m. at Denver Victorian Playhouse, 4201 Hooker St, Denver www.denvervic.com


Paragon Theatre presents the World Premier of (W)hole by Denver playwright Tracy Shaffer
In (W)hole, Ames is an artist whose life is shattered by the self-destructive model she hires. Yet amid the rubble of her relationships, Ames discovers what it means to become truly whole.

Show Time – Friday, November 12, 7:30 pm at Paragon Theatre, 1387 S. Santa Fe Drive, Denver  www.paragontheatre.org


Stories on Stage presents Making Merry

PHAMALY presents The Diviners at the Aurora Fox Theatre
In a small farm community during the depression, water and faith are in short supply. A charismatic but back-sliding preacher drifts into town and meets a gentle but misunderstood boy with the gift of divining or water-witching.  The  two outcasts find a common bond to help each other divine for truth, faith and hope.

Show Time – Friday, January 21, 7:30 p.m. Aurora Fox Theatre, 9900 E. Colfax Ave, Aurora.  www.phamaly.org
