OpenStage believes theatre opens the heart and mind. Founded in 1973, OpenStage has led the cultural development of Northern Colorado while remaining true to its grassroots origins. An OpenStage season brings the best of the national theatre scene to Fort Collins, including comedies, classics, and cutting-edge dramas. In addition to being the primary presenter at the Fort Collins Lincoln Center Magnolia Theatre, OpenStage performs Theatre in the Park and in intimate non-traditional spaces, reaching 10,000 patrons annually. As an independent non-profit, OpenStage works with 150+ local theatre artists each year to deliver exceptional theatre to Northern Colorado, driven by the belief that theatre is vital to a community's creative and economic health.
