Mission Statement

Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre's mission is to stimulate, inspire and cultivate a passion for the performing arts in Grand County, the state of Colorado and the nation through outstanding productions, education and outreach.

Organization History

In 1967, David and Audrey Thompson launched The Troupe of American College Players in Grand Lake, CO. After a short stint in Colorado Springs and a brief dormant period, in 1989 the Town of Grand Lake asked the Thompson family to return to its Grand Lake roots. The Thompson family kept the theatre alive until David's death in 1993. In 1995, Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre (Rocky Mountain Rep) obtained its initial nonprofit 501(C)(3) status, bringing theatre back to Grand County. They began building a loyal patron base, offering musical theatre classics while operating in the Grand Lake Community House. In 2007, with the help of statewide and nationwide funding, as well as the generosity of its dedicated patrons, Rocky Mountain Rep successfully completed a $5.2 million capital campaign and in June 2011, Rocky Mountain Rep opened the doors of a new 297-seat theatre. Since that time, Rocky Mountain Rep has experienced tremendous successes - being named "Colorado's Premier Summer Musical Company" by the Denver Post and receiving a Henry Award from the Colorado Theatre Guild for outstanding regional theatre for the 2014 season. After celebrating a 50th Anniversary in 2017, Rocky Mountain Rep continues to offer performing arts and cultural excellence in the Grand Lake area by presenting classic and contemporary Broadway musical productions featuring professional actors, musicians, and top production designers from across the nation -- a formula that has established Rocky Mountain Rep as a vibrant and influential arts organization in Grand County, CO and the surrounding region.
