Education Programs

It is part of the Theatre Aspen mission to educate the next generation of theatre artists and enthusiasts through programs for audiences and students of all ages. The Theatre Aspen Apprentice Program is an opportunity for college-level aspiring professionals to get involved directly with Theatre Aspen's mainstage, gaining valuable experience in the areas of  Performance, Stage Management, Technical Theatre/Design, Theatre Education and Arts Administration. Theatre Aspen School, for grades K-12, provides high-caliber training in acting, singing, dancing and stagecraft through classes, workshops and productions offered all year long. Even adults can get in on the fun through our Adult Education Classes, offered in the fall and spring.
