Celebrating their 12th season, Stories on Stage creates programs from the belief that literature is a rich source of powerful stories and actors enhance the impact of literature on people's lives. The Mile High Chapter of the American Red Cross awarded Stories on Stage its first-ever Leadership in Inclusiveness Award. In being the Community Inclusiveness Hero, Stories on Stage was cited for giving audiences "an experience of identifying with people and situations outside of their own worlds."
