What's it all about?

Arts in the Open performs at various locations throughout Colorado, primarily at Chautauqua Park in Boulder.  We do two shows a year, one summer production and one fall production.  Our hikes are usually at a moderate level/pace and last no more than 2 hours.  When you first arrive, you will be greeted by your hiking guide who will lead the way down the trail to each scene location.  Once you arrive at a scene location, you can sit back and relax and watch a scene from the production.  Once the scene is complete, we all gather our things and hike to the next location. 

All our productions use minimal props and costumes.  Our performers literally use "what nature gives them".  We've done fun adaptations of classic fairy tales, Shakespeare, literary classics, you name it!



Of all the paths you take in life, be sure a few of them are dirt.
