Dinner and first-rate entertainment, right here in downtown Brighton. One of our goals is to provide opportunities for cultural entertainment that appeal to the entire family, and that won't break your pocketbook. The heART of Brighton is working hard to bring a taste of entertainment and culture to families in our community.
Face it, the cost of gasoline makes a Friday or Saturday-night trip into Denver less than enticing, especially when you add the Denver-size costs for dinner and a play or concert. Try to provide that opportunity for your entire family, and the cost can be staggering.
Think about a short drive or a summer-night walk to a downtown restaurant, then attending the Armory, catching an evening of entertainment by the Bright'N Jazzor the Platte Valley Players, Prairie Playhouse, or a show by Hazel Miller, Robin JoLeady or T-Shirts are 4Ever.
The Armory features top-notch performance lighting and the best acoustics of any building in the surrounding area. The original proscenium stage has an added thrust stage that is moveable and can be a stage in its own right. Many different configurations can happen to accomodate different programs, including concerts, dinner theater or conferences.
What does the heART of Brighton do?
The heART of Brighton solicits and distributes donations for the Armory. The committee is charged with making decisions about how the funds they collect are spent, with the goal of enhancing the facility, upgrading equipment, and helping to attract and fund community performances. Since the committee is composed of volunteers from the community, dollars are used to directly benefit the mission.
Through the efforts of the heART of Brighton, donation dollars have helped to add tables, chairs, lights, art boards and backstage equipment to the Armory. The committe works in tandem with the Brighton Urban Renewal Authority and the City of Brighton to maximize the dollars through matching grants and commitments from local groups.
The heART of Brightonhas created several unique ways you can support the arts locally, and have your donation publicly acknowledged.Your dollars can buy you a brick at the Armory's front entrance that allows you honor a valued family member or just contribute a hearty, "Well Done". Your dollars can buy you a name on our ceiling to floor wall of plaques inside the Atrium of the Armory - a centerpiece that everyone in the community sees when they enter the facility. You can memorialize your donation by having a room dedicated to you at the Armory. Rest assured that all of your dollars will go to creating a more beautiful and wonderful place for performances, art shows and celebrations for the entire community to enjoy today and well into the future.
