Madame Curie developed radium in the 1920’s and “radium water” was quickly marketed as a miracle drug. But other uses were found for its luminosity such as on the dials of clocks and watches. The “radium girls” who painted those dials soon were getting ill and started to die. One worker – Grace Fryer – fought against the working conditions and the harmful effects of radium. A truly empowering tale of the fight for improved, less dangerous working conditions for all.

Shows in the Black Box theatre often sell out quickly. Please get your tickets early to avoid disappointment.

Every year the Denver School Of The Arts presents an original Black History Show written, directed and performed by students. WHEN WE GET HOME, this year’s show, originated with the idea of telling a story of gentrification. The story has developed into a tale of love, faith, unity, religion and community which follows the lives of six people living in Denver in 2019 and how the effect of gentrification impacts their lives, either as a contributor to the system or as victims of the negative outcomes.
