Moving Traditions is thrilled to announce an afternoon of theatre, conversation, and connection at the acclaimed Denver production of Dear Evan Hansen.

This bold musical explores the stresses and challenges that teens face today as they internally and externally navigate a complex, confusing contemporary world. Join us for the show and a talkback discussion with Moving Traditions educators about our work to empower and engage healthy teens and support this journey they travel.

A letter that was never meant to be seen, a lie that was never meant to be told, a life he never dreamed he could have. Dear Evan Hansen is about to get the one thing he’s always wanted: a chance to finally fit in. Both deeply personal and profoundly contemporary, Dear Evan Hansen is a new American musical about life and the way we live it.

More about Dear Evan Hansen

Hailed by critics and audiences alike, this bold new musical moved Peter Marks of The Washington Post to declare it “A heart-piercing trip to the place that musical theater can sometimes take us to.” And Charles Isherwood of the New York Times calls it: “a fresh, vibrant new musical that opens the heart and the mind.”

Tony Award® nominated director Michael Greif (Rent, Next to Normal, Grey Gardens) with the Tony-nominated composing team of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (A Christmas Story, Dogfight, NBC’s “SMASH”) and award winning playwright Steven Levenson (Showtime’s “Masters of Sex”)
