Vintage Theater Productions in Denver, Colorado has the remarkable opportunity to be the first theater company in the state to produce the smash hit musical, Avenue Q. The most iconic element of this musical is the puppets that sing, dance, love, laugh, drink and curse like the rest of us! This element is also one of the costliest of the show, since our puppets are being custom made for Vintage Theatre. The goal of our Kickstarter project is to raise money to help offset the cost of construction, maintenance and care of the puppets over a seven week rehearsal process and a ten week performance run.

Founded over martinis in 2002, Vintage Theatre Productions began as a touring/rental company that brought affordable, quality theater to the masses.  In 2008, the company found a home at their current space on 17th and Vine Street in the heart of Denver.  Since moving into their current home, Vintage has produced over 30 plays and musicals, including two world premieres, over 10 regionally premiered shows and garnered audience and critical acclaim.  In 2009, the company was honored with 9 Colorado Henry Awards nominations for excellence in theater, and was honored again in 2011 with four Henry Award nominations, including one win for Best Actress in a Musical.
