A BiTSY Theater Intensive for Young Artists
 
Join us for a 3-day intensive exploration of the theatrical process of adapting a story for the stage.

Students of all experience-levels ages 4th-7th grade are invited to work alongside professional actors, directors, playwrights, and designers to create their own version of our upcoming production of The Fortune Teller’s Fortune.  They will then have the opportunity to watch a free, private performance of the show, including being able to watch the company warm-up and prepare beforehand and participate in a question and answer session afterward.
 
The workshop will run WednesdayThursday, and Friday, September 28-30 from 6:00pm-9:00pm.  Cost is $75 per student with scholarships available based on need.  For more information or to register for this creative opportunity, please contact patti@bitsystage.com.

Great Write-up by NigeriaTeller

"BiTSY Stage, the child-pleasant division of Denver’s Shakespeare-loving Betsy Stage, throws down some high quality youngsters’s theater with The Stone Coat Lady: An Iroquois Story, a play based mostly in Native American storytelling lore and finished up in a critical tone with lovely costuming, staging and a high quality forged — totally free. Introduce your little ones to the joys of the stage — and be swept away your self — at this tour de fource from director Patti Murtha."

We had a Fantastic Opening Weekend!

by Patti on 05/24/16

Our General Manager received this beautiful note from an audience member who was at our opening performance of The Stone Coat Woman. With her permission, here it is:

Hi Patti,

My family and I just wanted to say thank you so much for the amazing performance of The Stone Coat Woman! All 5 of the performers were amazing! We were blown away by the powerful and intimate setting and the rich story. We talked afterwards about all of the ways that the actors and props allowed our imaginations to soar. Our youngest, who was very shy after the performance said that he loved the singing. The two older girls agreed that the narrator, Mr. Sanchez, did a great job of bringing the whole story together. We were amazed at the diversity of the cast and the phenomenal thought that went into the adaptation. This kind of opportunity, for our family, is priceless!

The Bitsy is truly a gift to our community. We will definitely be spreading the word and plan to come back for each upcoming performance.

Thanks again for a great way to spend our Saturday morning and a new cultural addition to our family's life.
