BACKSTAGE SUMMER JAM IS COMING!
JUNE 27, 2015 - 12:00pm - 6:00pm
We're having a party and you're invited!
SET is blocking off our parking lot and opening our theatre to the Colorado Springs community on June 27th from 12pm to 6pm. We want people to join us for a mini live music and play festival with food trucks, kid’s activities, and loads of fun for people of all ages! We’re excited to bring this free event to our space featuring Ben Pratt’s “Aggressive Dinner Music” which consists of original tunes, cover tunes, jazz, folk, rock and children’s tunes; The Rogue Spirits, an alternative folk band hailing from Colorado Springs with Travis Duncan (concertina, banjo) and Jeremiah Walter (baritone ukulele); and Alpha, a local group ready to get your feet moving.
Along with music, we will have activities for kids and adults, a mini play festival in our theatre featuring a variety of different types of performance, coffee from Euphoria coffee, and alcohol for people 21 years old and up.
SET’s Backstage Summer Jam Sessions will take place at Springs Ensemble Theatre, located at 1903 E. Cache La Poudre Street, Colorado Springs, CO 80909. The event happens Saturday, June 27th from 12pm to 6pm.
This event is free and we invite people to come for all or part of the day. Mini play festival shows will cost $2, with tickets for those shows available day of the performance only. People 21+ who would like to consume alcohol at the event can pre-purchase a wristband for $10 by clicking on the TICKETS tab (these will also be available in person the day of the event).
We will check IDs before issuing a wrist band.
NEXT AT SET: CIRCLE MIRROR TRANSFORMATION
PLEASE NOTE DATE CHANGE: CIRCLE MIRROR TRANSFORMATION will perform July 10-26, 2015
Have you ever wondered what all it takes to learn how to act? Ever walk by a classroom of actors and wonder just what the heck is going on in there? Wonder no more. Season Six at Springs Ensemble Theatre continues with one of the great new American plays, CIRCLE MIRROR TRANSFORMATION.
A small group of people of all ages and types sign up for a six-week acting course at a community center in Vermont. What starts with a collection of theatre games between strangers, it's not long before the participants begin to see themselves and each other for who they really are. What unfolds is a story about love, loss and self-realization through the power of art. A love letter to the theatre and actors, CIRCLE MIRROR TRANSFORMATION has been called "absorbing, unblinking and sharply funny...an unheralded gem" by the New York Times and won the 2009 Obie Award for Best New American Play. If you have a passion for theatre, either in front of the lights or in the seats, this show will speak to you!
CIRCLE MIRROR TRANSFORMATION runs July 10 - 26, 2015.
