From an audience suggestion, Newheart builds scenes with strong characters and points of view — allowing relationships to drive the discovery of concepts and connections throughout each show. From the absurd and playful, to the real and ridiculous, shows often tackle complex themes such as renewal, loss, hope, stagnation, death and other hilarious tragedies that define the human spirit. Newheart strives to bring love, honesty and passion to the world, one set at a time.
Newheart was born in 2011, the lovechild of Torch Theater graduates Clifton Gray, Bryan Gerdes, Lauren Shellenbarger and Rachel Tullio. Newheart was an official selection of the 2014 Red Rocks Improv Festival.
