TheatreWorks founder and former artistic director Murray Ross continues to inspire the company's work.
The 2018-2019 season pays homage to the William Shakespeare connoisseur, who died early last year, with an expansion of its popular annual Shakespeare production at Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site. Beginning July 26, the professional theater company will showcase an additional production under the big tent, as well as pop-up performances by summer camp students. "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)" and "Macbeth" will run for a month.
Murray's adaptation of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" also will come alive in the Dusty Loo Bon Vivant Theater at Ent Center for the Arts during the holidays.
Next year's offerings feature new work by award-winning playwright, rapper, essayist and poet Idris Goodwin, who's also an assistant professor in Colorado College's Department of Theatre and Dance. The season will wrap up with the award-winning Broadway musical "Little Shop of Horrors" about everybody's favorite flesh-eating plant.
