Officially Announcing our 2018 Season!

The Commedia of Robin Hood by Lane Riosley

Directed by Matt Davis
The merry troupe — Columbine, Arlequin, Punchin, and Rosetta — tackle, tumble, trick, and trip their way through the tale of Robin Hood with fantastic abandon.  Get ready for action-packed clowning with puppets, stilts, singing, patter verse, and mock combat in this unforgettable adaptation.


Irish Tales Along the Trails by Patti Murtha

Directed by Lorraine Scott
Prepare yourselves for a journey of the imagination as we venture to the Emerald Isle for stories of wit and whimsy!  Lively lads and lionhearted lassies test their brains and bravery in stories guaranteed to delight the entire family.  May the road rise up to meet you and the wind be always at your back as you hike along with these courageous Celtic characters.


The Invaders From Planet 9 by Lauren LaCasse

Directed by Veronica Straight-Lingo
They came from 5 billion miles away!  They came for our planet!  They can be anywhere!  They can be anyone!  The HORROR!  The THRILLS!  It’s THE INVADERS FROM PLANET 9!  Prepare yourself for a fun, lively tale of adventure and extraterrestrials.  Join a group of college students who find themselves in the middle of an alien invasion.  Can these unlikely heroes work together to save the day?  Or will our planet be lost to these ruthless invaders?  Playing homage to classic science fiction stories from the 1950’s this tale is sure to make you scream and laugh in equal measure.  Brace for adventure and fantastic terrors like you’ve never seen before.  THE INVADERS FROM PLANET 9!


Arts in the Open fuses nature with live performance and invites our audience to enjoy the best of what Colorado has to offer.

Our productions are a healthy option that gets the whole family up and moving. As a Leave No Trace Company, our goal is to educate the public about Colorado trail preservation as well as reach a wide range of audiences and expose them to a variety of theatrical productions.
