Between CSU's world-class performing arts center, local community and professional acting troupes, traveling Broadway shows, venues devoted entirely to musical theatre (with and without dinner), long-standing children's theatre companies and summer performances under the stars, it's no wonder Fort Collins boasts more opportunities to see live theatre than in Boulder and Colorado Springs combined!
Fort Collins richly deserves its reputation as the cultural capital of Northern Colorado. With a half-dozen live theatre stages in production throughout the year; a symphony orchestra, ballet troupe and opera company as well as several choral ensembles; facilities that accommodate a wide range of national touring shows and concerts, and galleries and museums mounting exhibits of everything from animation art to historical kimonos, there's always something interesting going on.
The Foothills Pops Band directed by Glenn Shull is a non-profit organization of local adult musicians who perform musical arrangements enjoyed by everyone. Regular season performances are held at the Fort Collins Lincoln Center.
Started in 1958 by a group of community-minded individuals, FCCT is founded on the belief that exposure to live theatrical performances is a valuable experience to be shared with families and children of all ages.
