When: July 31-Aug. 3 2014
It's all about that limelight. Two o'clock today brings the last performance of Applause at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center (30 W. Dale St., csfineartscenter.org). The Tony-winning musical follows an aging theater star and her apprentice through the cutthroat world behind the curtain. What makes this production special is the cast and crew: This show was assembled and acted by the FAC's Youth Repertory Ensemble, a group of local 14- to 18-year-olds brought together for only five weeks. The show opened July 31, with evening performances through Saturday at 7; all tickets are $10. — Griffin Swartzell.
