Theater presentations to feature local young actors

March 19, 20242 min read

The Platte Valley Players, Brighton’s nationally award-winning community theater, presents “101 Dalmatians Kids” and “Mary Poppins Jr.”, it’s annual theater presentation featuring local young actors in all key roles, on Friday, March 8th and 15th at 7pm and Saturday March 9th and 16th at 2pm and 7pm, at the Armory Performing Arts Center, 300 Strong Street in Brighton, Colorado.

These beloved Disney classics come to life on stage and star 60 local children ranging in age from 6 to 15. “101 Dalmatian Kids” is based on the animated Disney classic complete with larger-than-life villain Cruella De Vil and hero Dalmatians who work together to thwart Cruella’s plot to steal the puppies to make a new fur coat. With upbeat music and lovable characters, “101 Dalmatian Kids” is sure to charm audiences of all ages. “101 Dalmatian Kids” runs approximately 25 minutes and features child actors from grades 2-5.

Based on one of the most popular Disney movies of all time, “Mary Poppins Jr.” is a delightful stage presentation featuring an enduring story, unforgettable songs and spirited choreography. As a new nanny for the Banks family, Mary Poppins leads the children on magical and memorable adventures, teaching them (and the adults) important life lessons. As the family learns from Mary, “Anything can happen if you let it.” “Mary Poppins Jr.” runs approximately one hour and features child actors from grades 5-9.

“These productions are a ton of work and a ton of fun”, said Leslie Zirker, Executive Producer of both productions and board member of the Platte Valley Players. “We’re incredibly lucky to have so many talented, hardworking young actors and singers in these shows. We can’t wait for you to see them!”

Tickets for “101 Dalmatian Kids” and “Mary Poppins Jr.” are now available through the Platte Valley Players website at Both shows will be performed back-to-back with one ticket good for both shows. Tickets are limited so please reserve yours today.

The Platte Valley Players are thankful for funding partnerships of the Colorado Creative Industries, The SCFD Fund, the City of Brighton’s Lodging Tax Grant along with the support of many local businesses who sustain live performing arts.

I got a call from Susan at the Brighton Buzz asking if I wanted to advertise n the next issue. My response was that I either needed to keep my ad running or fold the business.

About 90% of the calls that I receive include a comment like, ”I saw your ad in the Brighton Buzz….

The majority of my calls take me inside a home, it is not unusual for somebody to pick up a copy of the Buzz and say they found me right there. The Buzz that they show me is frequently not the latest issue. The Buzz has great holding power! At the same time, I can always tell when The Buzz has hit mailboxes. My phone starts ringing. A lot of people seem to look through it right away.

The cost per home is low, the cost per response is reasonable. Am I going to continue to advertise in the Brighton Buzz? You can count on it!
