Highlights include the world premiere of ‘Rattlesnake Kate’ by Neyla Pekarek, Richard Thomas in ‘To Kill a Mocking Bird’ and a newly renovated Marvin and Judi Wolf Theatre

 The new DCPA Theatre Company season kicks off September 18 and will feature nine mainstage productions — including the world premiere of the musical Rattlesnake Kate by Colorado’s own Neyla Pekarek, former member of The Lumineers. The season will also feature the company’s first Edward Albee production in over 20 years, a new adaptation of Jane Austen’s Emma and the return of A Christmas Carol.

“I love that this season brings American classics back into the mix, that several of these stories give us an opportunity to speak immediately to the moment we are living in, and that we continue stretching our relationships across this region,” said Artistic Director Chris Coleman. “And, of course, I’m personally excited to be part of the team that is bringing a new musical about a Colorado legend to life here at the Denver Center.”

As previously announced, To Kill a Mockingbird, Aaron Sorkin’s new play, directed by Bartlett Sher and starring Richard Thomas, and based on Harper Lee’s classic novel, will play The Ellie Caulkins Opera House July 13-August 1, 2021 as part of both the Broadway & Theatre Company 2020/21 full season subscription packages. A public on-sale will be announced at a later date.
