Vintage Theatre presents

Harold and Maude

by Colin Higgins
Directed by Pam Clifton
October 3- November 8*, 2014

Harold, dear, stop playing with your food.

Harold is the proverbial poor little rich kid. His alienation has caused him to attempt suicide several times, though these incidents are more cries for attention than actual attempts. His peculiar attachment to Maude, whom he meets at a funeral (a mutual passion) is what saves him and what captivates us.

This highly anticipated play, based on the hit 1971 film, features Director Pam Clifton and stars Debbie Persoff as Maude and Jose Zuniga as Harold.

Vintage Theatre presents “Harold and Maude” - Oct. 3- Nov. 8* - Fri/Sat at 7:30 p.m.; Sun at 2:30 p.m.; Thurs. Nov. 6 @ 7:30 p.m.; Sat., Nov. 8 @ 2:30 p.m. $26 ($21 advance); Groups of 6+ $18. 303-856-7830 or online at www.vintagetheatre.com - Vintage Theatre, 1468 Dayton St., Aurora 80010. *Please note Date Change from (Oct 17- Nov 16)

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by James Lapine
Directed by: Bernie Cardell
Music Directed by: David Wohl

Into the Woods humorously combines a number of classic fairy tales into one hilarious, touching, over-arching narrative. A baker and his wife are assigned a number of tasks by a nearby witch; only after completing these duties will they be able to bear children. During their quest to fulfill the witches' demands, they encounter Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Cinderella and numerous other fairy tale figures. The traditional stories are parodied and altered at will, yet the original fairy tale's sense of wonder and, at times, darkness remains intact.

“Goin’ courting” has never been as much fun as in this rip-roaring stage version of the popular MGM movie, adapted by Lawrence Kasha and David Landay. Music is by Gene de Paul and lyrics are by Johnny Mercer. Milly is a young bride living in the 1850′s Oregon wilderness whose plan to civilize and marry off her six rowdy brothers-in-law to ensure the success of her own marriage backfires when the brothers, in their enthusiasm, kidnap six women from a neighboring town to be their brides. Bursting with the rambunctious energy of the original film, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is all boisterous fun and romance that harkens back to the glory days of the movie musical.

Regional Premiere! It's 1969. The world is changing and the ladies of the church prepare for changes of their own below the House of God.

The Betsy Stage presents


An original adaptation of William Shakespeare's "Hamlet" by The Betsy Stage

Directed by Samantha McDermott

October 3 - November 8, 2014

"Make mad the guilty, and amaze indeed..."

The Betsy Stage presents "Hamlet" October 3 through November 8 at 1133 S. Huron St. Denver, CO 80223. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. Monday, Oct. 13 and 23 at 8 p.m. and one Sunday matinee on November 2 at 2 p.m. All performances are FREE, donations are accepted. Reservations are required by email: Hamlet@BetsyStage.com or by calling 720-328-5294. More info at http://www.betsystage.com/

Set in the summer in a pine forest in Eastern Europe, behind the circus tent sits the gypsy camp with its family of performers and musicians; the perfect place to tell our version of Hamlet.

Hamlet is in mourning. Hamlet is angry. Hamlet sees the ghost of a father wronged. But, in this version, everything else we know about Hamlet is uniquely different.

"Hamlet" brings the return of Patti Murtha (Hamlet), Michael Vasicek (Claudio), Gina Walker (Gertrude), Tim McGrath (Horatio), Mallory Vining (Laratess), Michal Meyer (Guilde Stern), Kaitlyn Althoff (Rosen Crantz) and Jaycee Sanchez (Marcellus). New to The Betsy Stage are Zach Brown (Ophelio), Dave Cuomo (Francisco), Liliana Franco (Cali), Chris Wells (Osrick) and Adwin Galo (Taloche).

As for the gypsies... they are a people cursed to roam yet caged when held in place, misunderstood, and under served in every possible way. The unacknowledged Johnny Appleseed of music, their journey across the globe (which began in Rajasthan, India) resulted in the cross pollination of sounds and styles from everywhere. The wailing oboe, the mournful violin, the passionate flamenco guitar, they all tell the story of the gypsies and it’s the story and history of world music.

The [innovative] Betsy Stage 2013 production of "Juliet & Romeo: The Panopticon" took place in an Orwellian environment under the watchful eye of panopticon cameras that followed citizens’ every movement. In November 2013, The Betsy Stage adapted Shakespeare’s "King Lear" and put his three favorite "working girls" to the test as he divided his kingdom in "The Travesty of Lear." A nightmare journey that starts as a model of innocence descends into destruction and despair for the painter "Beth" in their April 2014, all female adaptation, of "Macbeth."

The Betsy Stage presents "Hamlet" - Oct. 3 - Nov. 8, Fri./ Sat. @ 8p.m.; Mon., Oct. 13 & 23 @ 8 p.m.; Sun. , Nov 2 @ 2p.m. *No Performance Oct 31. Cost: FREE (donations accepted). Reservations required by email Hamlet@BetsyStage.com or 720-328-5294 - The Betsy Stage, 1133 S. Huron St. Denver, CO 80223. http://www.betsystage.com/

Jordan Kelley and Jason Huber take their fun very, very seriously. The pair behind the ambitious and emphatic Nashville duo Cherub craft hooky electro-pop that lyrically captures the risque, pleasure-seeking impulses of their youth, while their studio expertise results in grooves so alluring, even your parents can dance to them. Which is their exact goal on Antipasto EP, the precursor to their highly anticipated Year of the Caprese debut LP.

OMAHA DINER is many things: the world's definitive virtuoso of the seven-string guitar, the pioneer of saxophonics, a recipient of the 2012 Guggenheim Fellowship for composition, and a Grammy nominee. Omaha Diner is at home in all situations in and beyond the world of music - not only scoring one of the films of legendary director Robert Altman, but performing in another one as well.

Sitting in a diner in Omaha, Nebraska in 1954, Todd Storz noticed that a teen-age waitress selected the same song on the jukebox over and over. At that moment, Top 40 radio was born, joining the TV dinner, the Reuben sandwich, the bobby pin, the ski lift, and (some claim) fuzzy dice on the list of famous and infamous inventions from the city that sits atop the Strategic Air Command.
