Have you ever been tempted to flee your own life? Becky Foster is caught in middle age, middle management and in a middling marriage. One night Becky is offered nothing short of a new life…and the audience is offered a chance to ride shotgun in a way that most plays wouldn’t dare. Becky’s New Car is a thoroughly original comedy with serious overtones, a devious and delightful romp down the road not taken.

Regarded by many as the greatest musical ever created, GYPSY is the ultimate tale of an ambitious stage mother fighting for her daughters’ success… while secretly yearning for her own. Set all across America in the 1920’s, when vaudeville was dying and burlesque was born, Arthur Laurents’ landmark show explores the world of two-bit show business with artful humor, heart, and sophistication.

In the summer, the educational outreach program of Taste of Shakespeare offers a full Shakespeare show, in venues around the northern Front Range. This summer, we offer Tempest, Shakespeare’s final show.
Prospera, the exiled duchess of Milan, has been living on a deserted island with her daughter Miranda and the half-human Caliban. Possessing magical abilities to control the many spirits of the island, including Ariel, Prospera causes a ship carrying the men who exiled her, including her own brother Antonio, the King of Naples Alonso, and his sister Sebastian, to wreck on the shores of her island. Alonso’s son Ferdinand finds himself falling in love with Miranda; Antonio and Sebastian plot to murder Alonso; and Caliban, with the help of two fools Trinculo and Stephano attempt to take over the island. With the spirits, Prospera wrestles within herself to decide if she will use her magical powers to exact revenge on her enemies or begin a new life back in Milan.
