Announcing our 36th Season (2015-2016)

MisallianceGeorge Bernard Shaw
Deirdre of the SorrowsJohn Millington Synge
The Taming of the ShrewWilliam Shakespeare
Our TownThornton Wilder

Due to the upcoming Dairy Center renovations we will be moving a bit next season.
Misalliance and Deirdre of the Sorrows will be performed at The Dairy Center.
However, the theater spaces at The Dairy will be closed for renovation in early 2016
and The Taming of the Shrew and Our Town will have to be performed elsewhere.
We are currently exploring options for performance space but do not yet have
locations or dates for those shows. We'll let you know as soon as we have
more information.
We expect to return to the Dairy for fall of 2016.
We apologize for the inconvenience.

All performances of The Upstart Crow are at
The Dairy Center for the Arts
2590 Walnut Street . Boulder . Colorado
Parking at the Dairy Center for the Arts is limited! On nights when the Dairy Center is hosting mutiple events demand for parking can greatly exceed capacity.
Please plan accordingly.

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.
