Winner of two Pulitzer Prizes, the 2004 New York Drama Critics Circle Award, and the Outer Critics Circle Award, Lynn Nottage’s beautifully written and intensely personal story weaves a delicate tapestry of the joys and sorrows of an African American seamstress in 1905 New York City.

Esther sews elegant intimates for socialites and prostitutes alike as a vibrant cast of characters plays part in her determined search for love and respect in a world that seems to overlook her.

” … a deeply moving portrait of Esther, a middle-aged African-American woman … Nottage’s play has a delicacy and eloquence that seem absolutely right for the time she is depicting … New York has no richer play … ” –NY Daily News
” … thoughtful, affecting … The play offers poignant commentary on an era when the cut and color of one’s dress – and of course, skin – determined whom one could and could not marry, sleep with, even talk to in public.” –Variety
“ … a near-perfect balance between content and execution … ” –Associated Press

Recommended for ages 14+

Election season. Nebraska. Francine, a silver-tongued campaign manager, is recruited by Penny, a candidate for lieutenant governor who talks a lot, says little, and means even less. As Francine helps Penny rise in the polls, Francine’s marriage suffers. Her husband Jeffrey, a doctor, finds himself lying to a dying patient, Ben, who opens Jeffrey’s eyes to Penny’s nefarious plans for the Cornhusker State, convincing Jeffrey that Penny must be stopped. The Totalitarians is a raucous dark comedy about the state of modern political discourse, modern relationships, and how easy it is to believe truths without facts.

The Totalitarians is directed by SET President Matt Radcliffe. Sarah Sheppard Shaver plays Francine, the ambitious campaign manager who catapults candidate Penny Easter, played by Holly Haverkorn, to the top of the polls. Taylor Geiman portrays Francine’s luckless husband, who finds himself as one-half of a two-man coup with a rebellious young man named Ben, played by Danté Finley.

Please be aware this production contains adult language and sexual themes.

[more+]

The Iron Springs Chateau presents its first show of 2018, “A Precious Bit of the West…or…She Was Simply a Delight!” which opens on Friday, February 9.

This show, written by local actor and playwright Vicki Kelly, is a side splitting western melodrama where our heroine, Precious Delight, has traveled from England with her Aunt Ima Delight to claim the Buffalo Chips ranch, which she inherited from her uncle.

The evil Ralph Rancid, though, intends for the Buffalo Chips Ranch to become part of his spread, and will stop at nothing to make sure he gets it. Can Harry Hotline, the editor of the local paper, and his best friend Grizzly Jack help Precious and her Aunt Ima stake their claim before the Buffalo Chips Ranch goes up for auction?

The melodrama is followed by a sing-along intermission and a Mardi Gras themed Vaudeville style musical revue that will keep you laughing with songs, dances, jokes and crazy costumes! It’s a blast for the whole family! The show runs through August 11.

The show is directed by Rebekah Ratterree, musical direction by Bruce Littrell and Bonnie Hausknecht, costumes by Stephanie Bradley and choreography by Daisya Dowen and Rebekah Ratterree.

The Iron Springs Chateau has been bringing family-friendly entertainment to the Pikes Peak Region for over 50 years, and is a great way to spend the evening... whether for the entire family or a memorable date night.

Winner of two Pulitzer Prizes, the 2004 New York Drama Critics Circle Award, and the Outer Critics Circle Award, Lynn Nottage’s beautifully written and intensely personal story weaves a delicate tapestry of the joys and sorrows of an African American seamstress in 1905 New York City.

Esther sews elegant intimates for socialites and prostitutes alike as a vibrant cast of characters plays part in her determined search for love and respect in a world that seems to overlook her.

” … a deeply moving portrait of Esther, a middle-aged African-American woman … Nottage’s play has a delicacy and eloquence that seem absolutely right for the time she is depicting … New York has no richer play … ” –NY Daily News
” … thoughtful, affecting … The play offers poignant commentary on an era when the cut and color of one’s dress – and of course, skin – determined whom one could and could not marry, sleep with, even talk to in public.” –Variety
“ … a near-perfect balance between content and execution … ” –Associated Press

Recommended for ages 14+

Election season. Nebraska. Francine, a silver-tongued campaign manager, is recruited by Penny, a candidate for lieutenant governor who talks a lot, says little, and means even less. As Francine helps Penny rise in the polls, Francine’s marriage suffers. Her husband Jeffrey, a doctor, finds himself lying to a dying patient, Ben, who opens Jeffrey’s eyes to Penny’s nefarious plans for the Cornhusker State, convincing Jeffrey that Penny must be stopped. The Totalitarians is a raucous dark comedy about the state of modern political discourse, modern relationships, and how easy it is to believe truths without facts.

The Totalitarians is directed by SET President Matt Radcliffe. Sarah Sheppard Shaver plays Francine, the ambitious campaign manager who catapults candidate Penny Easter, played by Holly Haverkorn, to the top of the polls. Taylor Geiman portrays Francine’s luckless husband, who finds himself as one-half of a two-man coup with a rebellious young man named Ben, played by Danté Finley.

Please be aware this production contains adult language and sexual themes.

The Iron Springs Chateau presents its first show of 2018, “A Precious Bit of the West…or…She Was Simply a Delight!” which opens on Friday, February 9.

This show, written by local actor and playwright Vicki Kelly, is a side splitting western melodrama where our heroine, Precious Delight, has traveled from England with her Aunt Ima Delight to claim the Buffalo Chips ranch, which she inherited from her uncle.

The evil Ralph Rancid, though, intends for the Buffalo Chips Ranch to become part of his spread, and will stop at nothing to make sure he gets it. Can Harry Hotline, the editor of the local paper, and his best friend Grizzly Jack help Precious and her Aunt Ima stake their claim before the Buffalo Chips Ranch goes up for auction?

The melodrama is followed by a sing-along intermission and a Mardi Gras themed Vaudeville style musical revue that will keep you laughing with songs, dances, jokes and crazy costumes! It’s a blast for the whole family! The show runs through August 11.

The show is directed by Rebekah Ratterree, musical direction by Bruce Littrell and Bonnie Hausknecht, costumes by Stephanie Bradley and choreography by Daisya Dowen and Rebekah Ratterree.

The Iron Springs Chateau has been bringing family-friendly entertainment to the Pikes Peak Region for over 50 years, and is a great way to spend the evening... whether for the entire family or a memorable date night.
