(Press release)

Like many small local venues, we had to close our doors when the pandemic hit Colorado in March 2020. Rather than closing the door on artistic endeavors, we decided to forge ahead. Over the last two years, our network of Colorado playwrights and theatre artists has grown to include creative artists in poetry, fiction, non-fiction, film, video, audio, and visual art. We are experimenting with new ways to connect audiences with theatrical and creative art. Our expanding vision and use of new platforms, collaborations, and immersive art began out of creative necessity and will continue as we open again in June.
