Curious and Curiouser

Among its many outreach programs, Curious Theatre Company’s Curious New Voices curriculum for youth is one of the strongest, and certainly one of the coolest: In progress since 2004, the program matches young playwrights ages 15 to 21 with guest mentors, under the auspices of Curious founding member Dee Covington, often culminating in performances of student works. In conjunction with current Curious production Circle Mirror Transformation, Annie Baker’s well-written comedy acted out under the guise of a community drama class, the present batch of budding dramatists will be showcased in Inside Out, a series of three performances, each featuring a separate program of ten-minute student plays inspired by the Circle Mirror theme of looking at characters and storylines from a private point of view.

The first is tonight at 7 p.m. at Curious Theatre, 1080 Acoma Street; consequent dates follow at the same time tomorrow and February 20. Admission is by donation at the door; for details, visit www.curioustheatre.org or call 303-623-0524.
Sun., Feb. 6, 7 p.m.; Mon., Feb. 7, 7 p.m.; Mon., Feb. 21, 7 p.m., 2011

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
