In the dark days of the Depression, Charles Ault Sr. opened a little theater called the Festival Playhouse in  Denver. Seventy-five years later, some of the kids, grandkids..even great-grandkids of those first audiences still come to the playhouse.  And it’s remained in the Ault family. Charles Ault Jr.-- Charley -- runs the theater today. It’s now in Arvada.  On a recent night a friend sold cash only tickets in the lobby  while Charley and his wife joined actors getting into costume for their latest production - “P.S. Merry Christmas.” Ryan Warner speaks with Charley Ault.
