Boulder Area Theater Highlights

The University of Colorado Department of Theater and Dance spring semester's production of “The Awakening of Spring” continues tonight through this weekend at the University Theatre, Mainstage. A tragedy of adolescence, “The Awakening of Spring” is a searing indictment of Victorian prudishness where well-meaning parents and teachers silence all discussion of sexuality with the teens in their care. Teenagers move from desire, idealism and exploration to unwanted sex, abortion, suicide and despair as they make the complicated, thrilling, frightening and confusing transition from childhood to adulthood without the adult guidance they so desperately need. Note that “The Awakening of Spring” is for mature audiences. March 11-14 at 7:30pm, March 15 at 2pm.

If you're looking for something lighter, Buntport Theater Company presents "Seal. Stamp. Send. Bang." which tells the story of four people and how the post office happens to connect them in surprising ways. It's an all-original musical with a Buntport twist, one that promises you'll never look at mail the same way! March 12-14 at 8pm. Check the website for additional dates and times through April 4.
