Performing Arts Programming Underway at Lone Tree Arts Center

Image
With the Lone Tree Arts Center's (LTAC)  anticipated opening in August, convenient access to professional performing arts is just around the corner for all Coloradoans and those of us in the SoHa region, especially residents of South Metro Denver (a major part of SoHa). LTAC Executive Director Lisa Rigsby Peterson is collaborating with some of the Front Range’s premier performing arts companies to present their productions in Lone Tree. And, LTAC will be a leading presenter of smaller national and regional touring artists and productions; a new provider of arts education programs for children; and an important new meeting and event rental site for corporate, civic and private groups, and community arts groups including the Lone Tree Symphony Orchestra.
Free parking and concierge-level services are just two of the amenities the new Arts Center plans to offer. Look for the inaugural season to be announced in April with subscription ticket packages going on sale in May.

Chris Wiger :: Best Theater Marketing Maven - 2011

Image
Chris Wiger, Marketing & PR Director for Lone Tree Art Center, is Denver's loss and SoHa's gain (as seen on westword.com)...
""After fifteen years as publicity director (and, briefly, head of patron relations) at the Denver Center Theatre Company, Chris Wiger left in February for a spiffy job as director of marketing and public relations at the new Lone Tree Arts Center. We started missing things about him even before he left. His extraordinary efficiency, for example: Wiger responded to requests for seats, photographs and information in record time... His thoughtfulness: Get caught in a traffic jam, and you were likely to find Wiger standing in the middle of the lobby when you finally raced in, holding out your tickets; find yourself seated next to a loud drunk and he'd get you another seat, pronto....While we look forward to seeing him at Lone Tree, evenings at the Denver Center will never be the same."See the complete story at: [2011 marketing maven]
