Mission

The mission of Stories on Stage is to nurture empathy and understanding among individuals as well as groups through performing arts programming that combines theater with literature.

History

Stories on Stage began in June of 2000 with a pilot performance at the Acoma Center in Denver.  We formed a nonprofit corporation in 2001 and our board of directors adopted our mission. We initiated and continue our LoDough program which allows anyone who wants to attend our program to purchase tickets on a name-your-price basis.  In addition to our standard programming of actors in dramatic reading of short fiction, we create special shows at the request of citizens on topics of interest to our community, including slavery in America (The Slave Narratives), mental health (The Mind's Eye), Latino culture (Beyond the Border), addiction (Addiction-Free: The Road From Hell and Bill W. and Dr. Bob) and autism (Autism Chronicles). In November 2009, Stories on Stage created an actual book about cancer caregivers. Based on interviews with 40 caregivers from Exempla's Comprehensive Cancer Center, the book became the basis of The Calling to Care, a performance designed around the interviews.


In 2008 Stories on Stage was selected by the Mile High Chapter of the Red Cross for its Breakfast of Champions “Everyday Heroes” Award for our efforts to increase inclusiveness in arts programming and audiences and for our emphasis on programming that addresses issues of importance to our community.


In spring, 2010 founder and Artistic Director Norma Moore retired and Anthony Powell became Stories on Stage's second artistic director. We currently perform our season shows at Su Teatro Cultural and Performing Arts Center, The King Center, and in various venues in Boulder.
