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!

Veronica's Room photo

Just in time for the Halloween season, this chilling mystery thriller by the author of Rosemary’s Baby explores the thin line between fantasy and reality, madness and murder. Students Susan and Larry find themselves as guests enticed to the Brabissant mansion by it’s dissolute caretakers the lonely Mackeys.Struck by Susan’s strong resemblance to Veronica Brabissant, long- dead daughter of the family for whom they work, the older couple gradually induce her to impersonate Veronica briefly to solace the only living Brabissant, her addled sister who believes Veronica alive. Once dressed in Veronica’s clothes, Susan finds herself locked in the role and locked in Veronica’s room. Or is she Veronica, in 1935, pretending to be an imaginary Susan?

“Like being trapped in someone else’s nightmare…jarring and (with a) surprising climax…a neat, elegant thriller.” - Village Voice
