We had difficulties with casting The Taming of the Shrew and we have changed our next show to Twelve Angry Jurors (A.K.A. Twelve Angry Men). We apologize for any inconvenience.

We have also added a second matinee performance on Sunday, February 28.

If you have any questions, contact us at 303-442-1415 or

Due to the Dairy Center renovations the dramatic theaters at the Dairy are now closed. Twelve Angry Jurors and Our Town will be performed at
The Nomad Playhouse,
1410 Quince Ave, Boulder.
We apologize for the inconvenience.

Actor's Benefit

The first Name-Your-Price Night of each production is now an Actor's Benefit performance. Our actors give up their weeknights for 6 weeks of rehearsals and then 3 weekends of performances. Our crew (which includes the actors) gives up their weekends during that time to build sets and costumes. Although The Upstart Crow needs the money, the receipts from this night will be divided among the cast and crew to provide some compensation for their time and effort. It probably won't rise to the level of slave wages, but it will help ease the burden on struggling artists. If you'd like to show your appreciation to the people who make our shows happen, this is a good time to do so.

The Upstart Crow, a classical theatre company, constantly strives to find and produce those works that speak to the contemporary experience from a historical perspective with the highest respect for the actor's craft, the playwright's intention, and the audience's intelligence.

Our scripts for Shakespeare
and other classic plays are
provided by Armado & Moth;
scripts arranged for actors.
