The Wolves follows a high school girls soccer team as they warm up for a series of games, preparing for battle. Amid warmups, passing drills, and the raw energy of girlhood, the undefeated Wolves psych each other up—and dive into rapid-fire, unfiltered conversations about the world and their places in it.

A collaboration with Colorado College’s Theatre and Dance department

Wed–Sun, June 1–26 at 7:30 p.m. | FAC Courtyard

Anyone Can WhistleAnyone Can Whistle

A Youth Rep Ensemble Production | Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim | Book by Arthur Laurents

With its circus-like atmosphere, Anyone Can Whistle features plenty of memorable, lovably cartoonish roles of all sizes. The dazzling, melodic Broadway-style score overflows with the youthful energy of experimentation, consisting of one showstopper after another, including two extensive ballets that provide opportunities for some inspired choreography.

Thurs–Sun, July 28–31
