Saturday, August 9: Bolder Acts Triple Header Event. 7 p.m. Nomad Theatre, 1410 Quince Ave., Boulder, 303-443-7510.

Bolder Acts strives to set itself apart from other local theater companies through the cultivation of three different performance formats: presentations of classics, workshopping of new scripts, and 24-hour plays, in which a play is conceived, written, rehearsed and staged from scratch within a 24-hour timeframe.

To open its season on Saturday, Aug. 9, it will be presenting all three formats back to back. There will be two 24-hour plays from company members, followed by a reading of a new script, then an intermission and a production of Edgar Lee Masters’ Spoon River Anthology.
