First look: Denver Center's fire and 'Lord of the Flies'


Rehearsals have not yet begun for Lord of the Flies, but Theatre Company technicians are already hard at work on creating a safe (and cool!) way for the production to depict the essential ritual fire the boys build on the beach. That’s Shop Foreman Bob Orzolek, left, working on the apparatus with Albert “Stub” Allison. We’ll be closely following the making of fire for this show, and we will be making a video to show you how it all gets done. We are working with the Denver Fire Department to make sure it is safe. Stay tuned! Lord of the Flies plays from Sept. 26 through Nov 2 in The Space Theatre. Information: Call 303-893-4100 or click here. Photo by John Moore.
