A mix of Broadway powerhouses and traveling productions will mark the inaugural season of the Denver metro area’s newest arts center.
The Lone Tree Arts Center announced the titles in its debut season today, and the roster varies from proven musicals like “Irving Berlin’s White Christmas” to visiting productions of Terrence McNally’s “Ragtime” by the Arvada Center crew and the Creede Repertory Theater’s take on “Unnecessary Farce” by Paul Slade Smith.
Other highlights include an anecdotal show by Broadway veterans Adam Pascal and Anthony Rapp that will kick off the season in September; a pair of productions from the “Stories on Stage” series; and the Arvada Center’s production of “Chess: The Musical” by Tim Rice as a final production in April, 2012.
The debut season of the new facility off E-470 and Yosemite Street will also see performances by the Lone Tree Symphony Orchestra, the Colorado Chamber Players, the Denver Concert Band and other local arts groups.
The new, 43,000-foot complex – built with green technology and energy efficient construction standards – is set to open its doors in August.
