Sopris Theatre Company auditions @ CMC in Spring Valley
Sep 1 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Sopris Theatre Company logoSopris Theatre Company at Colorado Mountain College calls for actors for two productions

Sopris Theatre Company, formerly known as CMC Theatre, will hold open auditions for William Gibson’s “The Miracle Worker” and Tom Stoppard’s “The Real Inspector Hound” Sept. 1, from 6 to 9 p.m. Auditions will take place at Colorado Mountain College in Glenwood Springs-Spring Valley, and callbacks will be held the following day

“The Miracle Worker” is based on Helen Keller’s autobiography, “The Story of My Life.” Blind, deaf and mute since her formative years, young Keller, unable to communicate, is frustrated and violent. In desperation, her parents seek help from the Perkins Institute, which sends them a “half-blind Yankee schoolgirl” tutor named Annie Sullivan.

The cast consists of four male roles, four female roles and roles for five to 10 children of various ages. Performance dates at Spring Valley are Oct. 16-25, and at Aspen’s Wheeler Opera House Feb. 5 and 6. The play is directed by Brad Moore.

Those auditioning for “The Miracle Worker” are asked to prepare a dramatic contemporary monologue.

“The Real Inspector Hound” follows feuding theater critics Moon and Birdboot, who are swept into the whodunit they are viewing. In the hilarious spoof of Agatha Christie-like melodramas that follows, the body under the sofa proves to be the missing first-string critic. Performance dates are Nov. 28-29 and Dec. 3-6. The play is directed by G. Thomas Cochran.

Those auditioning for “The Real Inspector Hound” are asked to prepare a comedic contemporary monologue.


Call 947-8177 or email for more information.


Auditions for both performances will be held at the New Space Theatre, Colorado Mountain College in Glenwood Springs-Spring Valley, 3000 County Road 114.

Jolene will present the basics on how to start beekeeping. Not a fan of beekeeping? Learn how to support and be a guardian for these important pollinators in other ways.

Sopris Theatre Company presents “The Miracle Worker” @ CMC in Spring Valley
Oct 16 @ 7:00 pm

thumbnail of The Miracle Worker production posterThe Miracle Worker dramatizes the volatile relationship between the lonely teacher and her charge. Trapped in a secret, silent world, unable to communicate, Helen is violent, spoiled, almost sub-human and treated by her family as such. Only Annie realizes that there is a mind and spirit waiting to be rescued from the dark, tortured silence. With scenes of intense physical and emotional dynamism, Annie’s success with Helen finally comes with the utterance of a single, glorious word: “water”.  Samuel French

Curtain is 7 p.m. on Oct. 16-17 and 22-24, and 2 p.m. on Oct. 18 and 25, at the New Space Theatre at Colorado Mountain College in Glenwood Springs-Spring Valley, 3000 County Road 114.

Wolves are one of the most misunderstood and persecuted animals, but there is more to their story. Wolves affect ecosystems in a variety of ways and have the ability to help restore balance and sustainability to the landscapes of Colorado. Many studies have been done about wolves over the last twenty years revealing their family structure to be paramount in maintaining their influence as a keystone species. Studies have also established proven methods for livestock producers to better coexist with wolves. By explaining the bigger picture of wolves in their historic ecosystems we hope to impart the importance of restoring wolves to Colorado’s wilderness.
