Urinetown, The Musical

Nov 11-14, 2021

Urinetown, The Musical

When a 20-year drought creates a terrible water shortage, one city's government bans private toilets, forcing citizens to use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company. Amid the people, a hero decides that he's had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom! Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, "Urinetown" is a musical satire of politics, the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility and musical theatre itself.

From orchestras, bands and choirs to jazz, world music and opera to world-class faculty and guest performances, the CU Boulder College of Music brings hundreds of stunning performances to Boulder audiences throughout the academic year. Check back soon for more information about this event!

Music and Lyrics Mark Hollmann
Book and Lyrics Greg Kotis

"Urinetown" was produced on Broadway in September, 2001 by the Araca Group and Dodger Theatricals in association with TheaterDreams, Inc. and Lauren Mitchell

They Promised Her the Moon

Many people know the history of the space race and the Mercury Seven. But few have ever heard the ill-fated story of Jerrie Cobb and the Mercury 13: a group of women who underwent the same rigorous psychological and physical astronaut training as their male counterparts but were ultimately denied entry into the space program based on their sex. "They Promised Her the Moon" is a highly theatrical, stunning look at the forces that keep women grounded, for better or worse.

Kent Thompson directs a cast of CU Boulder Department of Theatre & Dance's talented student performers. Don't wait to purchase tickets! Due to limited seating, tickets sell fast. But in the intimate Loft Theatre, every audience member gets a front row experience to this performance.

The department welcomes Kent Thompson as this year's Roe Green Visiting Artist.

They Promised Her the Moon

Apr 15-24, 2022

They Promised Her the Moon

Many people know the history of the space race and the Mercury Seven. But few have ever heard the ill-fated story of Jerrie Cobb and the Mercury 13: a group of women who underwent the same rigorous psychological and physical astronaut training as their male counterparts but were ultimately denied entry into the space program based on their sex. "They Promised Her the Moon" is a highly theatrical, stunning look at the forces that keep women grounded, for better or worse.

Kent Thompson directs a cast of CU Boulder Department of Theatre & Dance's talented student performers. Don't wait to purchase tickets! Due to limited seating, tickets sell fast. But in the intimate Loft Theatre, every audience member gets a front row experience to this performance.

"They Promised Her the Moon" is a 2021-22 Roe Green Production. The Department of Theatre & Dance is grateful to donor Roe Green. The Roe Green Visiting Theatre Artist fund allows them to invite a professional guest artist to campus each year to work with students. The department welcomes Kent Thompson as this year's Roe Green Visiting Artist.

"They Promised Her the Moon" was developed and produced by Miranda Theatre Company in 2017. "They Promised Her the Moon" was developed at TheatreWorks Silicon Valley as part of their New Works Festival. "They Promised Her the Moon" received its West Coast premiere on April 11, 2019 at The Old Globe, Barry Edelstein, Erna Finci Viterbi Artistic Director, and Timothy J. Shields, Managing Director

Postcard from Morocco

Apr 21-24, 2022

Postcard from Morocco

Set in a Moroccan train station at the turn of the 20th century, a group of enigmatic strangers interacts with one another, revealing both the mundane and the miraculous in their lives. Colorful and modern, "Postcard from Morocco" explores the physical and emotional baggage we all carry from day-to-day, whether it be an unrealized dream, a mysterious secret—or even a lover in a hat box.

Great repertoire, lavish scenery, amazing voices and outstanding value—these are the hallmarks of the CU Boulder College of Music Eklund Opera Program. Director Leigh Holman and Music Director Nicholas Carthy bring you the best of classical and contemporary opera in these fascinating productions.
