History

Stories on Stage is a nonprofit performing arts organization founded in 2000 by Norma Moore. Our format of bringing together great actors reading great literature by exceptional authors is inspired by the work of Arts & Letters Live in Dallas and Selected Shorts, a program of New York’s Symphony Space. Founded in 1978, Selected Shorts became so successful that their programs were carried by radio broadcast when sell-out crowds prevented all audience members from attending the live readings.

 

Stories on Stage began with a pilot performance at the Acoma Center in Denver in June 2000 under the sponsorship of the Rocky Mt. Harvard University Club. We incorporated in fall 2000 and launched our first season at the King Center on the Auraria Campus, Denver, in February 2001 with the co-sponsorship of the Department of Theater, Film and Video Production, University of Colorado at Denver. Stories on Stage Stories on Stage became a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organization in August 2001.

From our second full season, we experimented with reader's theater, programs for students and young children, and a variety of special shows. By 2003-2004, our growing reputation and attendance enabled us to relocate our primary venue to the Denver Performing Arts Complex, where we continue to perform our core series, Always on Sundays.


While Always on Sunday continues to feature the nation's top actors and writers, we have formed partnerships and collaborations with other community groups and our alternative programs increasingly serve more diverse audiences.
