Arvada Announces 2013-2014 Season

The Arvada Center has announced its seven-play season of which three are regional premieres. The four musical, three play package is filled with popular titles and includes an ongoing collaboration with Creede Repertory Theatre.

In the past several months, two very important decisions were made. One was to poll the Arvada Center patrons about possible shows to present in the upcoming year. Audience members voted for their favorites, and two of those titles – Camelot and Tarzan, were selected as a result. It was also decided that subscription ticket prices would stay at the same level as the previous year. Both these moves are reflected in what the Center is calling its 2013-2014 Patron Appreciation Season.

Subscription packages range in price from $182 to $400 and go on sale to Arvada Center subscribers and the general public on March 21.  Single tickets for the 2013-14 theater season go on sale August 5. Subscribing donors giving at the $150 level or above by June 3 will receive a free guest voucher for each subscription. These vouchers can be used for theater performances in the 2013-14 season. Orders can be made by phone at (720) 898-7200, online at http://www.arvadacenter.org/subscribe or in person at the Arvada Center box office.

“I’m very, very excited about next season.” Philip Sneed, Arvada Center Executive Director stated, “I think it’s our most diverse lineup in years, and I’m especially pleased that our patrons had a voice in this year’s play choices.’ Sneed went on to say, “Camelot is one of my favorite musicals, and while I can’t claim any credit for its selection, I couldn’t be happier that we will be producing it during my first full season on the job.”

“We are pleased to once again have the pleasure of a coproduction with Creede Repertory Theatre.” said Rod A. Lansberry, Arvada Center Artistic Producer, “Their staging quality and style is a perfect complement to our Season.”
