The Telling Project (TP), Veteran Artist Program (VAP), Campus Compact of the Mountain West
(CCMW), and the Bob Woodruff Foundation will present an original production of Telling:
Denver July 30th – August 3st, 2014 at Saint Cajetans on the Auraria Campus, in conjunction with
the Colorado Veterans in Higher Education Summit. Nine participants, consisting of Veterans
and military family members, will tell their own stories on stage in front of a Denver audience
under the direction of The Romero Theater Troupe. The Auraria Campus is hosting Telling:
Denver through the support of Metropolitan State University of Denver’s Veteran and Military
Support Services Office, in partnership with the SECond Mission: Service|Education|Careers
Initiative for student Veteran success through CCMW.
In preparation for this one-of-a-kind production, Telling: Denver participants will undergo
interviewing and performance training, acquiring tools to activate their community through the
arts. Delta Force, Marine Corps combat correspondents, Vietnam special operations, combat
nurses – these are a few of the perspectives this performance affords, all from Denver and
Colorado-based Veterans and military family members. Telling: Denver will be the 16th
production by The Telling Project. The Telling Project has been featured by the New York Times,
Washington Post, NPR, CNN, MSNBC and others, and performed at The Guthrie Theater
(Minneapolis), The Library of Congress, Portland Center Stage, Maryland Center for the
Performing Arts and others.
