‘The Glorious Ones’ promises rollicking good time
Sopris Theatre Company (formerly CMC Theatre) gives you a peek behind the curtain when it presents “The Glorious Ones,” a fun and bawdy musical that follows a 16th century Commedia dell’arte troupe backstage, onstage and offstage during the Italian Renaissance.
Colorado Mountain College adjunct instructor Brad Moore directs seven archetypal characters to carouse and cavort their way through this rousing performance. Silly and utterly comedic one moment, surprisingly tender and moving the next, the performance involves CMC students, theater professionals and community members to create entertaining and provocative dramatic fare for adult audiences.
The musical features book and lyrics by Lynn Ahrens and music by Stephen Flaherty. Producers for this performance are Carrie and Jeff Hauser; associate producers are Jim and Kelly Cleaver. Season producers are Jim and Connie Calaway.
Tickets are $20/adults; $15/CMC students, staff, faculty and seniors. Curtain is 7 p.m. on Dec. 4, 5, 6, 11, 12 and 13, and 2 p.m. on Dec. 7 at the New Space Theatre at Colorado Mountain College in Glenwood Springs – Spring Valley, 3000 County Road 114.
Upbeat jazz sets the stage. Classical nuances add drama. A touch of pop adds zest and spunk, while French undertones and Brazilian beat give the music an exotic flare. Free and open to the public, a free post-concert reception generously provided by Grand River Health.
