Welcome to Spark Theater!

Spark Theater is a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing you a unique, intimate and inspired theater experience. Good storytelling is all about the sparks: When you see that spark and two people connect, when sparks fly and the whole stage is alive and buzzing, and the fact that good theater sparks something inside of you, that changes you and doesn’t leave you the same, that spark of life. We put you front and center so you may experience live theater as it should be, up close and personal, not sitting rows back separated from the story. We’re excited to share the magic of theater with you, and spark your passion for creative and original theater right here in Denver!

The Enduring Hit Comedy

 Blithe Spirit

July 10 – August 1, 2015

Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays @ 7:30 p.m.

No shows on Friday, July 17th or Thursday, July 23rd

Tickets are $15 for Thursdays, $20 for Fridays and Saturdays

Written by Noel Coward, Directed by Maru Garcia. Starring: Lizzi Bennett, Marq Del Monte, Cathy Heine, Karen Kargel, Christin Mason, Randy Moorman, and Genevieve Price

The smash comedy hit of the London and Broadway stages, this much-revived classic from famous playwright Noel Coward offers up fussy, cantankerous novelist Charles Condomine, re-married but haunted (literally) by the ghost of his late first wife, the clever and insistent Elvira who is called up by a visiting “happy medium”, one Madame Arcati. As the (worldly and un-) personalities clash, Charles’ current wife Ruth is accidentally killed, “passes over”, joins Elvira and the two “blithe spirits” haunt the hapless Charles into perpetuity.
*Please Note: a strobe light and fog machine will be used during the performance. 
Spark Theater is pleased to continue our tradition of bringing you wonderful plays, that were turned into  movies, and are back again for you to experience and enjoy on Spark’s intimate stage!
