Thingamajig & Pagosa Springs Center Set Summer 2014 Season: LES MIZ, A CHORUS LINE & More
Thingamajig Theatre Company and Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts have announced their 2014 Summer Season, bringing professional theatre to the Four Corners region in Colorado.
"This year, we're offering four very big Broadway favorites, performed by professional actors from all over the country, in repertory throughout summer," said Tim Moore, Producing Artistic Director and Director of Thingamajig Theatre Company. "Once again, we've rented original props and costumes and brought in national talent to perform. It's a very rigorous production schedule, but the results are always outstanding. Audiences are in for a real treat at a great price."
Their 2014 Summer Season includes the following four performances:
Beauty and the Beast (June 13 - August 24, 2014)
The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee (June 26 - August 20, 2014)
LES MISERABLES (July 5 - August 9, 2014)
A Chorus Line (July 17 - August 22, 2014)
Beauty and the Beast is directed by Pat Payne, with choreography by Ryan Hazelbaker and music direction by Boni McIntyre. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is directed and choreographed by Ryan Hazelbaker, with music direction by Boni McIntyre. LES MISERABLES is directed by Tim Moore with music direction by Venita Burch. A Chorus Line is directed and choreographed by Ryan Hazelbaker with music direction by Boni McIntyre.
"The sense of community that arises in any town, but particularly a small town like Pagosa Springs, by the presence of an Arts Center and Theatre is astounding," said Tim Moore. "Often those individuals use the Arts Center and Theatre events as a place to gather and get together - bars and pubs don't hold the same appeal. We're so pleased to have the patrons we do in Pagosa Springs. The best part is, we see new faces at each event and those folks then get a chance to meet and gather with new-found friends thereafter. It's a strong community asset that we're proud to have been a part of establishing."
Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts' mission is to present professional theater created for the entertainment and enrichment of the diverse Pagosa Springs, CO, community. Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts offers performing arts from dance recitals and concerts that range from opera and world music to jazz and bluegrass, popular musicals and dramas, children's theater camps and art gallery exhibits.
"Donor support allows Thingamajig Theatre's artistic and community programs to thrive. As registered a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, our work is only possible because of donors," said Tim Moore. "We've been very fortunate to come into this small community and be widely accepted by the local population so quickly and with such love. Never could we imagine such a reception possible in such a small amount of time. It's all been a whirlwind, but we're incredibly grateful for the support."
