FAC announces new theater season

Posted By on Thu, Apr 5, 2012 at 10:26 AM

Last night, Scott RC Levy and the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center announced its 2012-13 theater season, which not only includes six plays on the schedule — plus one from last year — but the unveiling of a second stage in the upstairs music room.


Here's the lineup for the main theater:

Gypsy (Sept. 27 to Oct. 21)
A Christmas Story (Nov. 29 to Dec. 23)
Prelude to a Kiss (Jan. 31 to Feb. 17)
Other Desert Cities (March 21 to April 7)
The Drowsy Chaperone (May 16 to June 9)
Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris (June 20 to July 1)

The FAC had originally planned Next to Normal instead of Other Desert Cities (as you'll see in our InSider performing arts story); however, it went with the latter instead when the opportunity came to stage the Colorado premiere. (We'll get to it before the Denver Center.)

In the music room, the FAC has planned festival called Rough Writers, which will likely take place over a two-week period. Levy says it's "an opportunity to do readings of new scripts and development." He'll accept submissions of scripts (many of them for children's theater) from around the world, and the chosen scripts will be performed in a dramatic reading. Ideally, the playwright will be in attendance to receive feedback.

Happily, Levy's ambitious new schedule doesn't come with a bump in prices for season subscription tickets. They've also added "B-seating" passes, which cover the first four rows on the sides of the theater.
