This year the success of the Telluride Playwrights Festival exceeded all our expectations, due to the generosity of this community. We'd like to thank all our SPARKy Act 1, 2, and 3 members and all our volunteers, interns and donors for their help and support. In particular we'd like to give a big thank you to Silver Star Lodging, Bottleworks, Steaming Bean, Telluride Coffee Roasters, Telluride Brewing, Gigi Spitzer, Sheridan Chop House, Sutcliffe Vineyards, The Village Table, The Golden Crumb, Nevasca Realty, Two Skirts, Over the Moon, KOTO, The Daily Planet, The Watch and Telluride Ski and Golf Company. We'd also like to thank everyone who came to the shows, as without an audience, there is no show.
SPARKy Productions produces the Playwrights Festival in July but also brings exciting theatrical and film programs to the community. On Tuesday, Aug. 20, SPARKy will be presenting Audience with Helen Mirren at the Palm. This is a film of a current hit play in London by the National Theatre of Great Britain. Hope to see you all there.
– Jennie Franks, Artistic Director, SPARKy Productions
