Equinox Theatre, which performs at The Bug Theatre in Denver, announced its 2020 season featuring two regional premieres, one returning favorite and one “new-to-us-show that has been highly requested!” Here’s the lineup:
Jan 24 – Feb 15 – Bubble Boy*: Jimmy Livingston was born without immunities and has spent his entire life confined inside a plastic bubble room. Enter Chloe, the girl next door, who becomes his friend and steals his heart. When she leaves town to get married, Jimmy travels cross-country in a homemade bubble suit in order to stop the wedding and finally tell her how he feels. Along the laugh-filled journey he deals with a crazy cult, a biker gang, a dead cow, and a controlling mother who will stop at nothing to get him back in the bubble. Directed by Colin Roybal
Mar 27 – April 18 – Monty Python’s Spamalot: Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, MONTY PYTHON’S SPAMALOT retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people. Directed by Deb Flomberg-Rollins
June 5 – June 27 – TBA! We can’t announce this one yet – but we will soon!!!
Aug 7 – Aug 29 – Triassic Parq*: Religion, identity, sex… and raptors! Triassic Parq is a raucous retelling of that famous dinosaur-themed film, this time seen from the dino’s point of view. Chaos is unleashed on their not-so-prehistoric world when one dinosaur in a clan of females spontaneously turns male! Directed by Deb Flomberg-Rollins
Oct 9 – Oct 31 – Carrie, the Musical: Carrie White is a misfit. At school, she’s an outcast who’s bullied by the popular crowd, and virtually invisible to everyone else. At home, she’s at the mercy of her loving but cruelly over-protective mother. But Carrie’s just discovered she’s got a special power, and if pushed too far, she’s not afraid to use it… Directed by Colin Roybal
