Timbergriffen Theater Company Announces Spring Production

Local School Community theater overcomes tragedy to put on their spring production of Guys and Dolls.

Denver, CO, April 13, 2017 --(PR.com)-- The Timbergriffen Theater company is working on its spring musical Guys and Dolls. May 4, 5, & 6 at the Event Center at Pinnacle students from Early College of Arvada and The Pinnacle Charter school will dazzle and tell this classic story. This story about two couple's journey is truly timeless; Adelaide and Nathan have been together a long time, but his gambling just won’t let him get married. While Sarah and Sky have just met, because of a bet, and fall in love despite odds not in their favor.

Putting up this production has been a momentous undertaking for this theater company. The regular challenges of a large cast, crew, multiple staff members, and two student bodies would be hard enough. But this production is special. In January, an ECA student, Izak Luna, was cast as Sky Masterson. Izak however will not be gracing the stage in May because he was tragically taken from us way too soon. This incredible cast of students has pulled together and overcome one of the hardest things any young person can deal with. This production is dedicated to Izak and his family. They can’t wait to put this show up, but still feel the loss of his presence every day. This is the largest production yet for both schools and the directors, Kelly Bidstrup Graham and Zachary Vaughn are so excited to share it with the community. This production has over 70 students from both schools involved on stage, off stage, designing, and in the pit orchestra Starring Amber Hall and Alex Baca as Adelaide and Nathan, with Maria Nguyen and Dylan Carter as understudies, alongside Antonette Delgado as Sarah and now Logan Seabolt as Sky. The pit orchestra will be conducted by Zachary Garcia and the crew is directed by Eleanor Moriarty of the Wonderbound internship program. One of the greatest things about this theater company is how similar it is to actual community theater, students, staff, and parents, all come together to make this show a reality. From staff in the pit to parents sewing, from students creating the poster to staff hauling furniture from home, every person is this production has put countless hours of blood, sweat, and tears into this show.

Theater is such a wonderful tool for storytelling, bringing people together to share in a common experience. There is nothing else like it. The Timbergriffen Theater Co hopes you will come share in the experience this May. For ticket information call 720-473-4400, tickets will also be sold at the door. Evening performances begin at 7:00pm and Saturday matinee begins at 2:00pm.
