THAC Proudly Presents Barefoot in the Park!

Written by Neil Simon.  Directed by Robert Wells.

Written by one of the greatest American playwrights, Barefoot in the Park follows a newlywed couple as they learn to live together in their first apartment.  He’s a straight-as-an-arrow lawyer and she’s a free spirit always looking for the latest kick.  The Broadway play was nominated for three 1964 Tony Awards, and Jane Fonda and Robert Redford starred in the 1967 adaptation.

THAC Proudly Presents Disenchanted!

Town Hall Arts Center (THAC) continues its 38th consecutive season with a hilarious hit musical that’s anything but Grimm—Disenchanted!  

And they lived happily ever after.  Well… not exactly. Snow White & her posse of wanton, defiant princesses are here to set the record straight in this hilarious irreverent musical. Forget the princesses you know—these subversive storybook heroines turn fairytales upside down in this clever, not-for-the-kiddies musical.  Disenchanted! puts a new spin on Disney classics and fairytale happily ever afters. Book, music, and lyrics by Dennis T. Giacino.  Directed by Nick Sugar. 

THAC Proudly Presents Cabaret!

Littleton, Colorado: Town Hall Arts Center (THAC) opens its 38th consecutive season with an iconic, classic show — Cabaret. Nick Sugar will be reprising his role as the Master of Ceremonies for the second time on the THAC stage, as well as bringing his signature edge to both the direction and choreography. In Berlin, during the 1930s, the sexy and decadent Kit Kat Klub hosted a cabaret full of colorful singers and dancers. An aspiring writer enters into the bohemian lifestyle of the Cabaret denizens, who appear unaware of the rise of the Nazi Party outside their doors, and how their lives would change forever. Musical numbers include “Willkommen,” “Maybe This Time,” “Money,” “Mein Herr,” “Two Ladies,” and “Cabaret.”

Featuring a book by Joe Masteroff. Based on the play by John Van Druten and Stories by Christopher Isherwood. Music by John Kander and Lyrics by Fred Ebb. Co-directed and Choreographed on Broadway by Rob Marshall. Directed on Broadway by Sam Mendes. Cabaret will delight you with high-energy song-and-dance numbers, and haunt you long after you leave the theater.

“Last seen on our stage 13 years ago, our uniquely-talented director, Nick Sugar, is also starring as the Master of Ceremonies!”

“Nick and his dedicated design team, actors, band, and crew are sure to transport you on an unforgettable journey.”

Denise Kato, President of the Board of Directors for THAC.
