What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Education

School Tours: Vintage’s touring productions allow children to experience live theatre in an intimate setting, many for the first time. These shows are selected for young audiences with the goal of engaging students’ imaginations and building a curiosity to see more theatre. This season, Vintage will be touring Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka in local schools.
Youth Program: Vintage offers children ages 9 to 17 an opportunity to immerse themselves in theatre arts through an in-house program offered throughout the season. Children sign on for intensive 8-week sessions that can include classes on acting, directing, production concepts and evaluation, set design and theatrical criticism. Classes are designed to meet individual goals and culminate with a performance before friends and family. In some cases, students are offered an opportunity to perform or work on Vintage main stage productions. Although the program is fee-based, scholarships are available and we work closely with applicants requesting financial assistance to allow them to participate, in some cases, for free on a work/study basis.

Vintage has a strong commitment to invest in the community it serves. Although Vintage Theatre will be relocating from our current location at 2119 East 17th Avenue, we will remain in downtown Denver. Vintage recognizes that growing a community that values live theatre requires experimenting with new ways to present theatrical events apart from a traditional theatre season. Vintage supports programming that addresses these needs while providing valuable revenue for the company and introducing new audiences to our theatre.Collaboration:
The largest collaborations that Vintage worked on this year were with the Aurora Fox and the Aurora Cultural Arts District. Both presented ways to share marketing dollars to help grow and stretch current budgets while maintaining each organization’s unique voice. The City of Aurora provided the initial conversations with “anchors” of the district to come together at monthly meetings and offer assistance with areas of technical supervision, marketing, and special events. Although much of these discussions and programs happened late in 2012, we now have the beginnings of multiple events scheduled for 2013.
Other major cultural organizations Vintage collaborated with were The Parker Arts Guild and The Aurora Arts Guild with the assistance of Joanne Nelson. The wonderful artists present both Guild's paintings and artwork at all vintage events through the expanded lobby and gallery space. The artists wanted a place to showcase and sell their work, and Vintage provided the home for these groups. The guilds rotated six different art showings from June through December and sold many pieces to Vintage patrons attending our events.
For 2013 the collaboration with Theatre Espirit Asia (TEA) on Snow Falling on Cedars will also commence for both of our cultural organizations. TEA is relatively a new organization and Vintage is proud to call them a collaborating partner, with casting, funding support, and artistic input on the production.

Educational Programs:
This past season Vintage Theatre offered and exciting performance of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, adapted by local Colorado playwright Mark Sbani. Although the interest in the project was very minimal, Vintage will continue to work toward reaching schools and young audience moving ahead. We have consciously been mindful of our neighbor The Aurora Fox, and have specifically tried to not be in direct competition with their youth base.Beyond school programming is where VTP made huge strides in assisting other organizations in offering programs to youth at Vintage Theatre. Some specific examples were the Rocky Mountain Theater for Kids who performed The Wiz on the Jeffrey Nickelson Auditorium, the assistance of acting workshops for the Pinton Foundation, and the involvement with the 5280 Talent Showcase. The latter two organizations both were talent-based groups that raised money and scholarships for young performers under age 18 to receive cash scholarships to continue their training with live performance.
The largest Vintage-run involvement of youth programming was with the utilization of students as actors and technicians in our productions with The Cider House Rules – Parts I and II.The Peter Parnell script offered wonderful roles for children to be part of the St. Cloud Orphanage. The five actors ranging in ages from 8 to 14 years were able to enjoy sixteen performances with seasoned acting veterans from the community. This was a wonderful way for this group to learn about the acting process as part of this amazing ensemble. All students were paid and treated as equals alongside veteran actors such as Paul Page, Chip Winn Wells, and Kelly Reeves.
Vintage also continued our class offerings in the beginning of the season with Benjy Dobrin Studios and our own Artistic Director Craig A. Bond, who taught both youth actors (ages 10 to 14) and adults during Monday evening summer sessions. This past season offered a continued opportunity for high school students to work on our productions as crew. Students took on the roles of running crew for The Joy Luck Club, Drowsy Chaperone, and Kiss of the Spider Woman. All of these students were able to work side by side with professionals in set design, costumes, stage management, and lighting design to help foster their growth in technical aspects of live theatrical performance.
Two last examples of how Vintage engaged youth this past season was with the start of our Vintage Classic Movie Series. This program was brought to us through patron feedback and has a suggested donation as an admission. The movies are open to any audience members who love classic film. The intention of the program is to unite youngsters and parents alike to watch movies such as King Kongor Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory at Vintage. We provided talk backs where students could share in the conversations about what the film meant to them and the experience that they had just seen.
