Theater company open to all

Dear Editor:

SoL Theatre Company, or Stage of Life Theatre Company, is partnering up with the Carbondale Council on Arts and Humanities to launch a new nonprofit theater company for children to be based in Carbondale. Their goal is also to offer their program at the lowest possible cost to the participants, as well as scholarships for children who would not otherwise be able to afford participation in theater in this valley, while still putting on high-quality productions.

The first production they are doing to kick off the company is “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” – set to open on June 21 in Carbondale (at the Carbondale Middle School auditorium). Auditions are coming up on April 28 and 29 at the PAC3 in the Third Street Center in Carbondale.

The production team consists of Marisa Post, choreographer (a longtime local and theater director and choreographer who has worked for Aspen Community Theatre and Theatre Aspen), and Dory Light as musical director (also a longtime local who is currently music directing for “Rocky Horror” up at Colorado Mountain College and has worked with several companies in the valley). The director and founder is Logan Carter, who has worked with children for the past four years with Jayne Gottlieb Productions as well as taught for Theatre Aspen, Thunder River Theatre, Aspen Community Theatre and Hudson Reed Ensemble.

Tuition for “Joseph” is set at $350 per child, which is half the cost of the current theater companies for children in the valley. Scholarships also will be available to those who qualify. SoL is able to offer their program at a much more reasonable cost due to the support from the community in terms of fundraising and sponsors.

SoL Theatre’s mission is to build a healthy community and nurture our youth to their greatest potential through the performing arts. Through the use of theatrical training and production in a fun, safe and supportive setting, SoL Theatre Company helps children and young adults expand their self-concept, inspires them to lead by example and educates them to build the social and emotional tools in order to live meaningful lives.

SoL Theatre also is partnering with Thunder River Theatre on its conservatory program for children, with classes starting in July. For more info on SoL Theatre’s beginning and how it is collaborating

with organizations in the valley to offer theater to children from all walks of life, visit http://www.soltheatre or contact Carter at 720-936-9732 or
