New COVID-related protocols announced.

Sept 16th - Oct 10th

When actual guitarist Nina enters an air guitar competition, she thinks the whole thing is pretty silly, but she soon discovers that it takes real talent and charisma to become the champion. Does Nina have what it takes to do more than play pretend and seriously rock it? Airness is a comedy about "being authentic to your true self, letting go of your inhibitions and accepting others for who they are."
– Onstage Colorado
