 In/Visible Theatre

In/Visible Theatre make meaningful, beautiful, and socially relevant theatre for the permanent and temporary residents of our dynamic mountain town, and to tour outside our region.  We operate under the philosophy that great art is in service to others, and we recognize that to engage audiences in whole and moving theatre, all aspects of production--from the scripts we choose to the acting we present--must be of equally high quality.  Through constantly striving for both inclusion and excellence, we will pursue our theatre—our “seeing place” as a home for collective secular revelation.
