New name, new season for theater company at CMC

Sopris Theatre Company at Colorado Mountain College, formerly known as CMC Theatre, is preparing another new season of dramatic fare for audiences up and down the valley, including shows at Aspen’s Wheeler Opera House in January.

The season, produced by Jim and Connie Calaway, of Carbondale, consists of four productions that will run from Oct. 17 through April 19. All performances will take place at the New Space Theatre at Colorado Mountain College in Spring Valley near Glenwood Springs. One of this season’s productions also will enjoy a run at the Wheeler Opera House in Aspen.

Opening the season is “The Rimers of Eldritch,” Oct. 17-19 and Oct. 23-26, a play that focuses on a murder trial in a small Midwestern town.

Next, Dec. 4-7 and 11-13 at Spring Valley, and Jan. 23-24 in Aspen, is the 2007 musical “The Glorious Ones,” which follows a theater troupe’s antics during the Italian Renaissance.

“The Women of Lockerbie” runs Feb. 13-15 and 19-22 and tells the true story of the aftermath following the bombing of Pan Am flight 103 in 1988.

The season closes with the French farce “A Flea in Her Ear,” a 1907 play set in Paris and full of belle epoque fun, April 10-12 and 16-19.

Following the season’s offerings, a free student workshop on April 23 is open to the public.

Season tickets are on sale for the four-production series for $60, or $40 for students, seniors and CMC employees. All season ticket holders receive one additional ticket voucher, good for any one of the productions. Call 970-947-8177 or email for tickets and more information.
