Germinal Stage Denver has been in operation presenting plays to the greater Denver, Colorado area since 1974. The play venue is located at 2450 West 44th Avenue in Denver approximately five blocks east of the Federal Boulevard, at 44th Avenue and Alcott Street. Germinal Stage is a nonprofit organization and donations are gladly accepted. The venue was founded by four Denver actors named Ed Baierlein, Sallie Diamond, Ginger Valone, and Jack McKnight. The mission of the Germinal Stage is to provide plays of substance amidst an intimate and exciting atmosphere.
Season tickets are available through the box office at Germinal and can also be ordered via email or phone. The best seats are assigned on a first come first serve basis. Reservations can be held until noon on the day of the performance when no payment is put down. Cancellations can be made up to 24 hours in advance; otherwise the policy is all sales final.
Open auditions are ongoing for upcoming plays. The venue is set for amateurs and all auditions are conducted at the theatre. Most auditions are in the evenings, by appointment, and actors are informed to bring well prepared material. Five minute auditions are typical to display acting skills or potential.
