Page to the Stage: DCTC @ the TC with Helen Thorpe & Karen Zacarias

Historic LoDo: Page to the Stage is part of the CONNECT ( program by the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, a series of free events designed to enrich your theatre experience and spark a conversation. The series opens with the bestselling local author of Just Like Us, Helen Thorpe, and playwright Karen Zacarias in conversation with host John Moore, former theatre critic for the Denver Post. They’ll offer an inside look at the journey from the page to the stage as the world premiere of Just Like Us readies to open the 2013-2014 Denver Center Theatre Company season. Join the conversation with Helen Thorpe as she tells about documenting the lives of four Latina girls in Denver whose opportunities hinge on their immigration status. Commissioned by the DCTC to adapt Just Like Us for the stage, Karen Zacarias will share her experience of bringing this powerful true story to life.
