Golden, CO – Miners Alley Playhouse this week announced the 2020 Main Stage and Children’s Theatre Seasons . The season will be the 16th main stage season at Miners Alley Playhouse in Golden and the 6th season for Miners Alley Children’s Theatre.

Len Matheo, Executive and Artistic Director said, “2020 continues our commitment to producing great playwrights that tell compelling stories. Our lineup of shows is designed to leave theatre goers with a great evening of theatre that has “all of the feels”!”

Here’s the lineup:

Frankie and Johnny in the Claire de Lune

By Terrence McNally
January 24 – March 1, 2020

A play that is as raw as it is romantic, as visceral as it is vibrant, and as funny as it is breathtaking. When a diner waitress and a short order cook meet for a night of fiery passion, they expect a return to loneliness. But as desire turns into the possibility of love, they realize that true connection means being unafraid to reach for the moon.


Moon over Buffalo
By Ken Ludwig

March 20 – April 26, 2020

In the madcap comedy tradition of Lend Me a Tenor, the hilarious Moon Over Buffalo centers on George and Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1950s. At the moment, they’re playing Private Lives and Cyrano De Bergerac in rep in Buffalo, New York with five actors. On the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George’s dalliance with a young ingénue, they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom: Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee, and if he likes what he sees, he might cast them in his movie remake of The Scarlet Pimpernel. Unfortunately for George and Charlotte, everything that could go wrong does go wrong, abetted by a visit from their daughter’s clueless fiancé and hilarious uncertainty about which play they’re actually performing, caused by Charlotte’s deaf, old stage-manager mother who hates every bone in George’s body.


Hope and Gravity
By Michael Hollinger

May 15 – June 21, 2020

When an elevator falls in a major city, nine lives intersect in surprising ways, both comic and tragic—through love and sex, poetry and dentistry; in offices, homes, and hotel rooms. By turns hilarious and profound, Hope and Gravity traces the barely perceivable threads that connect us all.


The Crucible

By Arthur Miller
June 10 – August 16, 2020

Set during the Salem witch trials of the 1690s, The Crucible is a timeless parable of morality, a scorching indictment of intolerance, and a central work in the canon of American drama.


Once on this Island

September 4 – October 11, 2020

Once on this Island is the Winner of the 2018 TONY AWARD FOR BEST REVIVAL OF A MUSICAL. Once on this Island is the sweeping, universal tale of Ti Moune, a fearless peasant girl in search of her place in the world, and ready to risk it all for love. Guided by the mighty island gods, Ti Moune sets out on a remarkable journey to reunite with the man who has captured her heart.


A Christmas Carol

By Josh Hartwell
November 27 – December 23, 2020

This hilarious, fast-paced adaptation uses only five actors to bring Dickens’ most beloved characters to life. From Scrooge and Tiny Tim to Bob Cratchit and Mrs. Fezziwig, A Christmas Carol uses nothing more than simple props, fun physicality, and the power of imagination to convey this timeless story of redemption. Witness Ebenezer Scrooge’s transformation from a stingy miser to a man who generously celebrates the spirit of the season all year long, in this brand-new adaptation that is destined to become your favorite holiday celebration! Our yearly tradition is back and it’s better than ever! With new casting and new characters, Miners Alley’s A Christmas Carol is the perfect antidote to holiday stress!


Also announced on Monday was the 2020 Children’s Theatre Season. Rory Pierce, Director of Children’s Theatre said, “We are so excited for our sixth season of the Miners Alley Children’s Theatre! It is a great
