Event Details

From March 7th through 22nd, THEATREdART is proud to present our new production of the 1962 Anthony Burgess classic, A Clockwork Orange, with a fresh promenade style staging at the Subterranean Nightclub. This production is directed by THEATREdART artistic member Michael Lee, starring Christian O’Shaughnessy in the iconic role of Alex and an all-star ensemble featuring Dylan Mosley, Ashley Crockett, Dastan Harrison, Sallie Walker, Micah Spiers and more.


Playing Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 6:30pm at the Subterranean Nightclub

128 ½ E. Kiowa St. Tickets for this production are $15 general admission and $5 for students with valid ID. Our opening Sunday performance, March 9th, is entirely pay-what-you-can. 

 

In adapting his own work for the stage, Burgess cuts to the core of "A Clockwork Orange"--fear, power, morality, free will and the harsh dichotomy of right and wrong. In a not-so-distant future, Alex takes the audience on his journey of extreme violence and brutality, prison, reform through scientific over-conditioning, and a return to the modern world where he must pay for his past decisions. This version also includes the narrative of Burgess’ infamous 21st chapter, omitted from the film and initial printings of the book. An explosion of youth disaffection and promenade staging in the Subterranean (reminiscent of TdA's "Reservoir Dogs" and "Paradise Lost"), this production is a far cry from the familiar Kubrickian imagery.

 

“It is a strange future, though not too hard to imagine, a confluence of Cold War powers, youth culture uninhibited, an all-consuming state and an apathetic populace... I want to stray from Kubrick’s iconography and re-contextualize this story for a post-cyberpunk, post-Grand Theft Auto, post-9/11 world.” – Director, Michael Lee. 

 

Limited admission available. Tickets are paid for at the door. Group rates are available. Cash, checks and all major credit cards accepted. 

 

A Clockwork Orange is for mature audiences and contains adult themes, strong language, drug use and excessive violence.

THEATRE SPELLED WITH A LITTLE d

Theatre 'd Art (or TdA, for short) is dedicated to enriching the arts community in Southern Colorado by staging bold and challenging works that won't be seen anywhere else in the region.  Furthermore, TdA believes theatre to be a vital and relevant part of the cultural landscape of our region and works diligently to bring a new audience to this vibrant and engaging art form; it hopes to challenge preconceived notions of what theatre is and can be and also continually works to bring new and original plays, written and performed by local artists, to the stage.  TdA values diversity in art and all other forms of expression and does not discriminate based on sex, race, age, creed, religion, or sexual-orientation. We continually strive to improve ourselves and the artistic environment of Southern Colorado and will continue to produce theatre that is engaging to us and our audiences, old and new.


HISTORY

TdA was founded in 2003 by Brian Mann and Jonathan Margheim with the intent to bring a new audience to the theatre and specialize in experimental, absurdist, and surrealist forms of the avant-garde tradition.  TdA makes it a goal to perform plays with unconventional presentation that challenge an audience by bringing to light controversial and complex social issues.  War, politics, human relationships—nothing is off-limits. 

Todd Wallinger of the Colorado Springs Gazette has called TdA productions some of the most provocative works ever produced in this citywith “staggering ambition and depth."  Tracy Mobley-Martinez of ColoradoSprings.com says of TdA, "The risks it consistently takes — whether with material, setting or tone — typically succeed or fail in spectacular fashion."

AWARdS

2012 -- TdA director Crystal Carter received a 2012 Special Accomplishment "True West" Award from John Moore (culturewest.org) for her work on TdA's immersive stage adaptation of Quentin Tarantino's RESERVOIR DOGS. 

2008 -- TdA was pronounced “Best New Theatre Company” by the Colorado Springs Independent. TdA also won the Colorado Springs Independent’s award for “Best Use of an Overweight Guy on a Toilet” for Jonathan Margheim’s adaptation of Alfred Jarry's “UBU.”
