|Acting up! A night out for CVA||
March 9, 2005
One hundred years ago, Denver Mayor Robert W. Speer propelled Denver into the “City Beautiful” movement. He is credited with developing Denver’s tree-shaded streets, Civic Center Park, Sloan’s Lake Park, the Auditorium Arena and the Mount Evans highway. He was also driven from office amid allegations of corruption and election-rigging.
You can learn more about this part of Denver’s colorful history—and be royally entertained—at a unique theatrical fundraising event for Metro State’s Center for Visual Art (CVA). CVA and Curious Theater are teaming up for Acting up!, an evening of food, drink, art, music and theater on Friday, March 18. Tickets are $50, $35 of which is tax-deductible.
The schedule for the evening is as follows:
Act 1, 6 to 7:30 p.m.
Act 2, 8 p.m.
Act 3, After the play
The Curious Theater Company’s production of “Paris on the Platte” represents the first commission of an original play by the theater. Playwright Joan Holden, best known for “Nickel and Dimed,” wrote the script.
