In contrast to most large universities, our students have many opportunities early in their study to assume a variety of production roles from acting to set design.
The hands-on experience you build here at CMC with a theatre degree will form an excellent foundation for entry-level jobs or transfer to a four-year program. Our campus at Glenwood Springs-Spring Valley is situated in a culturally-active community, midway between Aspen and Vail. You’ll have the unique opportunity here to work alongside seasoned local actors.
Our New Space Theatre seats 100 and is fully equipped with a versatile stage and customized control booth to orchestrate lighting and sound. In a typical year, the Sopris Theatre Company (formerly known as CMC Theatre) showcases three to four performances. Click to view our archive of past productions.
The CMC theatre degree program includes a strong emphasis upon theatre appreciation. Because the theatre has long held a central cultural position in societies past and present, the study of theatre is truly a study of many things, including history, philosophy, psychology, religion, politics and more. Playwrights reflect, analyze and challenge issues and themes of their times. Theatre offers a unique insight into how societies view themselves and matters of great importance.
