BOULDER, CO – The Boulder County AIDS Project and Out Boulder are teaming up to host one of the largest LGBT and ally events in Boulder, a special benefit night of The Wizard of Oz at the Boulder Dinner Theatre, on Saturday, June 8th.

“This has been such an exciting year for the LGBT community, with the passing of civil unions in Colorado and the progress towards marriage equality across the country.  June is Pride month in Colorado, and this special night of theater comes at the perfect time to celebrate!” said Aicila Lewis, Executive Director of Out Boulder.  At the show, there will be a special acknowledgement of the couples who became parties to a civil union on May 1st, the first day that civil unions became available to gay and lesbian couples.

Like all girls her age, little Dorothy Gale of Kansas dreams of what lies over the rainbow. Come join Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tinman, Cowardly Lion and Toto as they travel the yellow brick road in search of the almighty Oz. With all your favorite songs: Over The Rainbow, Munchkinland (Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead), If I Only Had A Brain, If I Only Had A Heart, We’re Off To See The Wizard (Follow The Yellow Brick Road), The Merry Old Land of Oz, and more.

Attendees on June 8th will choose from the Boulder Dinner Theatre’s expanded menu selection (including prime rib and salmon), receive complimentary beer and wine and their choice of three dessert options, and will enjoy being part of this special night for the LGBT and ally community.  Proceeds from ticket sales will be split between BCAP and Out Boulder.

Tickets are available at, and are $95 or $115 each.  Please call Elissa at BCAP at 303-444-6121 with any questions.
