Theater and Theology brings members of Rocky Mountain Synod congregations in and near Denver to productions of the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. After viewing a play, we do a talk-back discussion with cast members on theological issues raised in the play. The plays and these discussions can challenge and stimulate our faith, and, therefore, the mission of the Church, in a unique way. For more information, contact Augustana’s office at 303-388-4678 or by email.
Tuesday, October 24, 6:30 p.m., Ricketson Theatre, Tickets: $35
Registration with check payable to Rocky Mountain Synod and footnoted “T&T Augustana: Smart People” must reach Augustana’s office by Tuesday, October 3.

But no matter how hard they research, question and confront the issue, their own problems with self-awareness make it difficult to face the facts of life. Fiercely clever dialogue and energetic vignettes keep the laughs coming in a story that Variety calls “Sexy, serious and very, very funny.”
