Ovation West Performing Arts is a vibrant performing arts organization and community partner that includes a multi-generational community choir (Evergreen Chorale), award-winning musical theatre productions (Ovation West Theatre Company), a historically designated performing arts/community center (Center Stage), a chamber choir (Altezza), performing arts education for all ages and sectors of society (Ovation West Education and Outreach), and a musically eclectic concert series (Ovation Concert Series). We are dedicated to providing excellence in choral and musical theater performances as well as performance training for singers and actors of all ages.
We aim to reach a wide demographic by staging performances in venues outside of Evergreen, performing regularly at locations in Golden and Denver as well as at Center Stage.
We seek to impact our community through the arts but also go beyond our own musical endeavors to partner with other charitable organizations. In addition, Ovation West Performing Arts works to promote the arts as an economic force in our community as an active member of the Evergreen Chamber of Commerce, the Colorado Theatre Guild, The Evergreen Creative District, The Evergreen Downtown Business Association, and other networking organizations.
Ovation West Performing Arts continually strives for excellence and professionalism in all aspects of our programming, and consistently attracts directors, singers, actors and patrons from the mountain community and throughout the greater Denver area.
Ovation West is also the owner of a performing arts venue known as Center Stage. To date, we have invested over $2 million in the acquisition of and upgrades to the property, transforming it from a rustic summer pavilion into a charming community resource with comfortable seating for 170 patrons and an expanded lobby/art gallery which was constructed with assistance from the Rotary Club of Evergreen. This space allows theater patrons to gather comfortably before shows and during intermission, and to enjoy the artwork of local artists which is on display through our partnership with the Center for the Arts Evergreen. The Evergreen Players, Evergreen Children's Chorale, Mountain Youth Musicals, Evergreen Conservatory of Music are valued partner organizations who utilize Center Stage throughout the year for rehearsals, performances, camps, and other events. We also open the theater and lobby as a meeting place and film showing venue for all community individuals and organizations.
