The Lincoln Center serves as our box office for purchasing tickets for our entire season, regardless of where the production is taking place. They are open 12PM-6PM Tuesday through Sunday. You can stop by in person to avoid ticketing fees. Call 970.221.6730 or purchase tickets online at lctix.com.
Ticket sales for productions off-site from the Lincoln Center are also available 30 minutes before performances at the performance venue.
We perform at various locations throughout the season. Be sure to check the play page on our site for location information.
Great question! No, OpenStage Theatre is a nonprofit that rents the Lincoln Center for 5 shows each season. That makes OpenStage Theatre the Lincoln Center Magnolia Theatre’s largest user! The Lincoln Center also serves as our box office for our entire season, regardless of where the production is taking place.
In addition to performing at the Lincoln Center, we also perform our outdoor show at The Columbine Health Care Systems Park at Worthington Circle and Centre Ave. And our etcetera Season productions are performed in nontraditional settings, such as art galleries and found spaces. We also offer programming that can be performed anywhere, at your company party, in the mall, or on the street! Be sure to check the play page on our site for location information.
Free parking is available at all OpenStage performances, but we encourage arriving early at venues like the Lincoln Center that are in a popular location. Parking is plentiful in the lot at the Center for Fine Art Photography and Columbine Health Systems. We also encourage biking to shows when weather permits, particularly for our outdoor production in June!
In case of inclement weather, we will hold the performance for 10 to 20 minutes before cancelling. If a performance is cancelled due to weather, audience members may exchange their ticket stubs for another performance through the Lincoln Center box office, 970-221-6730.

OpenStage is proud to work with 150+ local theatre artists every year, driven by the belief that local artists are vital to a community's creative and economic health. Once an artist works on four shows with OpenStage in two or more years, they become an OpenStage Company Member, the group of artists at the core of OpenStage. We are always looking for new theatre artists to join us, whether for a single production or becoming a Company Member.
