Aspen Community Theatre provides quality theatrical performances and a vehicle for the community to volunteer their talents on and off stage. For 44 years, ACT's productions have been a highlight for the Roaring Fork Valley Community. Your donation will ensure our future for years to come.
"Aspen Community Theatre was the first place I performed in a show outside an educational setting. It was the first time I worked with a group of artists of all ages to tell a story, where there were older, more experienced actors I looked up to & learned from, & younger, less experienced actors who looked up to & learned from me. I loved being part of a team, creating something together, where each person did their part & contributed a piece to the puzzle. I learned what mascara was & how to put it on. I ate my first challah bread. I watched the results come in, on a TV backstage, for the first presidential election I was old enough to understand. I met my first boyfriend. A little kid sat in my lap for the first time & I felt so grown up. I worked backstage for the first time. I wore a microphone for the first time. I got those ugly white jazz shoes I still wear to dance class 12 years later. I remember walking into the theatre & immediately feeling a shift in energy; everything going on outside was left outside & I was somewhere entirely good. In the craziness of high school, this amazing group of people gave me a place where I felt safe & grounded, & where I could be a part of something bigger than myself." - Cynthia
"Acknowledging the great Aspen Community Theatre accomplishments is my small-town way to thank each person involved for gifting us with his or her labor of love. I could write paragraphs about this year's presentation of "Nunsense." It's phenomenal, over-the-top, poignant and funny. However, all that really needs to be said is, "Go see it." Don't miss this one - go see it, hear it, enjoy the laughter, witness the talent, be awestruck.With deepest appreciation and respect, we thank the talented and dedicated Aspen Community Theatre crew for raising the bar year after year on the pleasure factor of November in Aspen. What a treat; what a gift you all give. Thank you".- NANCY AND WOLF GENSCH
"ACT also gave me my confidence back. I had been thoroughly broken down in theater school and it was through performing with ACT that I started to believe in myself again. I wouldn't be were I am now without it."
