We are so excited to announce we’ve been selected by the City and County of Broomfield as the 2023 Curatorium Artist!
Join us for Terrestrail Aesthetics - A Pop-up gallery event April 28-30th. Visit the art gallery, explore interactive art, and enjoy a show in the 1st floor courtyard near Dick's Sporting Goods. Join us for an exploration through nostalgic americana and the mundane beauty of liminal spaces often overlooked. This is a free event for all ages with activities for kids and gallery hours for parents and care givers to shop while kiddos play. Friday night will be a gallery opening and invitation to view an open rehearsal of Extended Stay which will be performed as a stage reading April 29th @ 2pm & 5pm, April 30th @ 2pm.
Extended Stay, written by Jenny Stafford and Scotty Arnold, directed by Kelly Bidstrup-Graham, is a brand new musical theatre piece! Featuring a small cast and live piano and guitar accompaniment, this is a staged reading - meaning performers will be seated or standing with music stands and stage directions will be read out. A portion of Extended Stay was featured in Wellspring's 3rd annual CO New Musical Festival in July 2023. This reading, and audience feedback, helps the authors further develop this musical for stage-readiness.
