Opening night of the Denver Fringe Festival at the Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Theater features three outstanding performances including an aerial dance production, a solo show by a winner of multiple international Best-of-Fringe awards, and a world premiere of a new play. Your ticket gets you into any or all of these shows on Thursday, June 8th! 

  • 5:00pm | Un/classica(erial) is a full-length aerial dance performance performed by Denver Aerial Dance Collective. This show is inspired by timeless classical music, remixed to give these beautiful melodies a new sound and perception. Professional aerial dancers will amaze you with their strength, beauty, and grace as they spin, leap, and drop from great heights.
  • 6:30pm | Magical Mystery Detour is a solo show by 20-Time ‘BEST-OF-FEST’ WINNER Gemma Wilcox. This show is an enchanting, shape-shifting, comedy-drama exploring the unexpected twists and turns of life, love and being on the road! ONE WOMAN, 23 CHARACTERS — human, furry, feathered, mythical and steel!
  • 8:00pm | A Lady’s Guide to Mountains is a new play celebrating the outdoor culture of Colorado and featuring the stories of real-life Denver native Erin, a trans climber making it a unique fit for Denver audiences. This world premiere workshop is brought to you by Producing Artistic Director of Breckenridge Backstage Theatre Jacqueline Stone (Director) and acclaimed Chicago Playwright MT Cozzola (Writer/Performer).
