The Stewart Auditorium at the Longmont Museum is hosting the Bunport Theater’s The Rembrant Room on Friday, March 8 and Saturday, March 9 at 7:30 p.m.
“I believe this may be the first time we’ve done any theater in the space,” says Justin Veach, auditorium and events manager for the Longmont Museum.
The museum have installed curtains in the Stewart Auditorium for future programming arts programming that will include theater pieces and amplified concerts.
The Rembran Room is described as “a dark comedy featuring one woman standing next to one masterpiece for God knows how long.”
Patrons can expect a “solo performance weaves together real events from the lives of legends such as Rembrandt and Catherine the Great, mythological tales of Zeus and Danaë, and a fictionalized story of a museum security guard,” according to the Buntport Theater.
The play won the Colorado Theatre Guild Henry Award for Outstanding New Play in 2015.
Tickets for the performance are $20 for general admission, $18 students/seniors and $15 for museum members. The performance will take place in the Stewart Auditorium at the Longmont Museum, located at 400 Quail Road.
