Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

It's a brave proposition to start a new theater troupe, but Wit Theatre Company, an ensemble of eight that formed just a few months ago, is ready to put on its first show. Make that almost ready.

Theater veterans will tell you that money is the hardest thing to come by -- not just when you're starting out, but sometimes even when you're well-established. So Wit's supporters are hoping to cushion the company's debut by throwing a fundraiser, a variety show featuring a little improv and a little comedy, some music and some performance, along with a silent auction.

And it's easy to join this fun fundraiesr: The show runs from 6:30 to 10 p.m. tonight at Blake Street Tavern, and costs only $5.

And it all goes to a very good cause: Wit will open a production of Martin McDonagh's The Pillowman on June 22 at the Bug Theatre. Visit the company's Facebook page for details.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
