Grundei, Michelle Hurtubise, Trina Magness, Jeremy Make, Jason Maxwell and Ryan Wuestewald, with Nina Rolle providing live various music (which includes a bell on her head). Directed by Amanda Berg Wilson. There are three remaining performances, Thursday, Friday and Saturday (Oct. 24-26) at the Dairy Center for the Arts, 2590 Walnut St., Boulder.
