NOW PLAYING: Miners Alley Playhouse Presents THE BELLE OF AMHERST thru 8/26

10:43 PM 2012


Miners Alley Playhouse presents THE BELLE OF AMHERST playing now through August 26th. This play by Willian Luce and directed by Rick Bernstein is based on the life of Emily Dickinson. THE BELLE OF AMHERST stars Paige Lynn Larson as Emily Dickinson, delicately explores the life of America's greatest woman poet at various stages in her experience from the age of 15, when she was full of hope and success, until she died at 56, a virtual recluse with her door closed against society. Her life is recreated with liberal excerpts from her poetry and by the method of her playing the roles of her father, teacher and friends. Julie Harris played the role on Broadway to great acclaim and won the 1977 Tony Award for Best Actress.

Miners Alley Playhouse presents THE BELLE OF AMHERTS engaging audiences now through August 26th. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m.; Sundays at 6 p.m. *(Sunday, August 19 is at 2 p.m.; no 6 p.m. performance that day). Tickets are available by calling 303-935-3044 or online at

On Saturday, August 4 at 7:30 p.m., Miners Alley holds its "Second Saturday Members Appreciation Night" and conversation with the director, cast and crew after the performance. Miners Alley Playhouse is located at 1224 Washington Avenue (13th and Washington, 2nd floor entrance on 13th) in Golden, CO.
