Colorado New Play Summit <p>Our stories start with you</p> <p>Watching a play spring to life on stage might make you believe in magic. But before a story can sweep you off into another world, it takes a whole lot of humanity to make it possible. After coaxing an idea into a script, playwrights can rely on the eyes of dramaturgs, directors and other writers to guide and edit. But nothing compares to presenting a piece to a live audience, where the real-time reactions of theatre lovers elevate words into something more.</p> <p>At the Colorado New Play Summit, it's your time to shine as you meet some of theatre's most ambitious writers while helping them fine-tune their newest works. Listen to play readings by fabulous actors and give your feedback on where you think the story should go, and enjoy fully-produced Theatre Company world premieres of Last Night and the Night Before (a featured reading at the 2017 Summit) and The Whistleblower by Tony Award winner Itamar Moses (The Band's Visit). Plus, be a part of a special concert reading of Rattlesnake Kate, a concept-album-turned-musical by The Lumineers' Neyla Pekarek and playwright Karen Hartman.</p> <p>The inspiration doesn't stop with the performances. Talk with the featured playwrights, directors, actors and other creatives about their plays over tasty meals and at special events like the Summit Party. It's your chance to meet the brightest minds in the craft and play an integral part in the future of Colorado theatre.</p> Speer & Arapahoe in downtown's Denver Performing Arts Complex Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center
