The Lighting Design Class is at it again. Each student designed their own lights and projections to some of their favorite music. This year they even stepped up on their costume design (Rock and Roll Scientists?). Thanks for another great quarter!
We learned and had so much fun this year at Thescon! We saw the productions of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee and Harvey. We attended workshops that included swing dancing, mime and illusion, accents, improv, monologue preparation, playwriting and more! And we were inspired by our keynote speaker, Ali Stroker from GLEE and Spring Awakening on Broadway. We had 7 acts from DA students that competed against 2000 other students from around the state. Congratulations Joel, Noah, Andrew, and Jack for qualifying for nationals!

Congratulations cast and crew on a hilarious production of Play On!. Thank you so much for all the laughs and hard work!
Thank you so much for attending Denver Academy’s production of Play On!. When I ask students why they enjoy theatre, I receive many different answers: they like the stories, they like to see what actors do when they mess up, and they think theatre is fun! Play On! highlights all those things. The joy of theatre comes from the playwright’s words, the director and actors’ interpretation, and the fun of working together to put on a show. And what a blast we had: we laughed at every rehearsal!
We are excited to share a behind the scenes look of the hilarious happenings during theatre rehearsals and performances. May you have just as much fun watching the show as we did putting it all together!
I am very grateful and want to express a very warm thank you to our community for your support of Denver Academy Theatre and theatre education. I thank the students for being part of the process of making theatre, and for your bravery and for your passion. It is a privilege to work with you. Congratulations, cast and crew, on a hilarious romp of a show!"
