Miners Alley Playhouse Theatre

A nonprofit organization

Support Miners Alley Playhouse, truly a "...theatre for the people." Miners Alley has an outstanding track record for high quality, affordable mainstage and children's theater performances, also offering year-round experiential education programming for children and teens.


Kudos to Miners Alley Playhouse for the well run youth acting camp this summer.

My son and his friend attended. My son is a natural born "ham." The camp gave him the opportunity to hone his skills and participate in the big show! His friend, more on the shy side, gained more self-confidence in his public speaking ability and performing in front of a live audience. The boys will be back for the camp next year!

We have also recommended the camp to additional parents. Perhaps next year, more weeks of camp can be offered.

Thank you and the Miners Alley Playhouse crew for a truly wonderful experience!


The mission of Miners Alley Playhouse is to be an educational and experience oriented professional theatre, providing opportunities for actors, directors, writers, designers, and technicians to gain valuable experience in a positive and supportive environment. To share ideas allowing participation in the creative process. To inspire audiences through the thoughts and stories we share. Listen to how our children feel about their world and provide educational opportunities for them through a theatrical process. Provide a venue for artists to learn, express, and perform.

Background Statement

Miners Alley Playhouse is a 501c(3) organization founded as Morrison Theater Company, now located in downtown Golden. An award-winning professional theater, Miners Alley offers live theater, musicals, comedy, improvisation, and classes, providing an entertainment center for audiences and an artistic home for artists in the greater Denver area for nearly thirty years.

After its founding in 1989 and subsequent incorporation in 1992, Miners Alley Playhouse quickly became a core component of Morrison's economic, artistic, cultural, and social matrix. In 1993, Miners Alley teamed up with the Town of Morrison to compete for the US WEST "Colorado Initiatives Rural Economic Development Grant," winning first prize. This $125,000 award jump-started a campaign that raised $180,000 to restore the historic town hall for multiple uses including the Morrison Theater Company, which performed in residence for 13 years. While in Morrison, Miners Alley developed a reputation as a quality producing company and brought many classic plays to the stage, cultivating a tradition of bringing new and innovative works to Denver metro audiences that continues to this day.

In June 2003 Mines Alley moved to a newly restored theater above Foss Drug in Golden (previously a restaurant), thereby assuring access to a theater facility all year long, abundant parking, and a state of the art venue that provides for plays, classes, and concerts in addition to visual art exhibition space.

Today, Miners Alley is recognized as a premier theater company in the Jefferson County and the Denver metro area, presenting both theatrical classics and new works. Miners Alley has presented world premiers, has received numerous local and regional awards, and has been featured twice in the national entertainment weekly, Variety. Miners Alley serves an audience of over 20,000 adults, youth, and children each year.
