A variety of live stage productions during Summer with local casts performing expertly...a wonderful activity to enjoy.

Acting done in a most professional way, and there is an amazing variation in the productions staged...worth seeing.

We have been going to all of the performances at Theatre Aspen for about the last five years. We have been amazed at the quality of the performances. We saw La Miserables in 2014 and we could not believe that it was possible to have such an amazing performance on a small stage. The performances for 2015 were excellent.

We have seen several productions here and they are the same quality as the best we've seen in NY. The facility is amazing, recently made permanent and surrounded by gorgeous floral and water landscaping. It's worth coming just to walk around and admire. They bring in outstanding equity actors with great credentials and fill out the cast with excellent apprentices.... More

Every show we saw here last summer was original and delightful. It is a high quality theater with innovative performances, but with a cozy Aspen atmosphere.

We saw two performances while visiting Aspen. One was a play entitled "The Cottage" and it was good. The other was the musical "Little Women" and it was fantastic. This is community theater at its very best, and I think they often sell out. The theatre is connected to the absolutely gorgeous John Denver Sanctuary, so be sure to go... More

We are thrilled you enjoyed the shows you attended at Theatre Aspen! On behalf of the actors who performed in the shows, however, we just wanted to point out that Theatre Aspen is a professional, as opposed to community, theatre and that the actors we employ come from all over and are paid to spend their time in Aspen. We... More

This is a must while in Aspen, intimate location and fantastic performers! absolutely a must! NO bad seat in the house, it doesn't matter where you sit, performance usually utilizes all parts of stage, you feel like you are involved in show. Love going to this theater!

What a fun evening! This 2014 show is so entertaining. The cast is extremely talented and full of great spirit. The show is funny, touching, and a really good time. It has adult themes that are tastefully represented. We had a blast! During intermission one can browse the gardens surrounding the tent, including the John Denver sanctuary.

Only attended one concert, in October 2013. This is normally a summer venue and a great one, no heating available during the October concert, but blankets were provided.. Recommended in the summer...
