ABOUT US

Here at THEATREWORKS, we like to play. In fact, we take our play very seriously. We've studied it religiously and we practice it daily. The result? Really good plays. Turns out that when you bring a group of highly creative and unbelievably talented dreamers together, they can make magic.

 

So that's what we do, we play and we make magic.

MISSION

 

THEATREWORKS is a professional, regional theatre company dedicated to creating challenging and innovative productions of classic and contemporary theatre for the enjoyment, education and stimulation of our community, including the Pikes Peak Region, the University of Colorado, and, on occasion the larger world.

HISTORY

THEATREWORKS was originally founded in 1975 as an outreach program of the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs. Through the decades it has grown into what is today the region’s premiere professional theatre company, remaining located on the campus in central Colorado Springs.

 

In 2003, we opened the Dusty Loo Bon Vivant Theater, our primary performance space. This flexible space theater typically seats up to 200, and you will rarely ever see it configured the same way twice. We produce about 7 shows a year that range from classic to experimental, and we are constantly trying new things to keep ourselves and our audiences engaged and excited.
