Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center announces theater season lineup | Arts & Entertainment

Tony Award-winning holiday classics and a diverse and inclusive programming effort form the new theater season at Colorado College’s Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center.

“The spirit of the season and the vision of the theater is one of richness,” said Pironne Yousefzadeh, FAC’s Producing Artistic Director.

“A place where everyone is welcome and everyone can be seen represented on stage in some way. That’s reflected in this season’s diverse writers, directors, performers and stories.”

Kicking off the season in November is the FAC’s first exclusive concert. “Songs From the Border” features original music about immigration and identity by Brian Quijada, who created his one-man hip-hop show “Where Did We Sit on the Bus?” last year at FAC .

In FAC tradition, the holiday season brings comfort travel. This time, we’re dressing up as a 1940s radio broadcast-style version of “It’s a Wonderful Life.” And in the spring, we’ll see Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Tony Award-winning In the Heights, followed by Madeline Sayet’s solo exhibition Where We Belong. The work addresses her journey to London where she studied Shakespeare and understood what it means to live in a globalized world.
