Theater scene in Springs expanding

This weekend serves as a poignant reminder of the tragedy of abundance.

There are too many cool music events, festivals, art openings to hit them all up. This is true most weekends, but this weekend in particular features an abundance of theater. Our theater scene, all of the sudden, is thriving!

This weekend, count 'em:

Broadway Bound at the Fine Arts Center

Our Town at Theatreworks
The Arte of War presented by Theatre 'd Art
Ten Minutes Max at the Manitou Art Theatre
Face The City at Venue 515

and the newly resurrected Star Bar Players are performing The Weir in a warehouse space.

Plus, in two weeks, the new theatre troupe, Springs Ensemble Theatre will launch with a fundraiser.

Whilst perusing the blogs this morning, I stumbled upon this blog about audience development in the theatre. As our theatre community grows (and I, for one, believe a population of almost half a million can support a lively and diverse theater scene), we might do well to heed the advice of our peers in the industry. Make sure you read the comments at this blog.

My favorite comments from PARABASIS blog:

"If you think of your online presence like a bank, then every time you write something that people think is interesting or funny, you are making ' deposit, and every time you write "Come See My Show' you're making a withdrawal. Unlike banks, you can't withdraw the same amount you've deposited."

"...all arts-in-ed should be participatory. Fund arts in schools for young people to Do It, not see it. When they grow up, this will pay bigger dividends, cuz they’ll know more about it and feel more connected to it."
