about.

Piknik Theatre is a nonprofit theater company in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.

OUR MISSION

Piknik Theatre creates professional, entertaining, and inclusive theatrical experiences in the Yampa Valley. We collaborate with the community in numerous performance venues both indoors and outdoors; and we strive to bring a variety of work to our community including Shakespeare, Musical Theater, New Works, Devised Pieces, and Theater for Young Audiences. 

 

We believe and encourage the accessibility of the performing arts for everyone by producing a free summer season every year. 

Professional actors and local talent collaborate to create our summer season. This unique opportunity allows the community to share in exceptional theatrical experiences as both actors and audience members. We believe in the immense power, value, and influence of arts education and have created opportunities for our professional artists to teach workshops, educate through our school systems, and engage with audiences through talkbacks.

Join us for professional theater in the Yampa River Botanic Park. Make it a summer tradition! Bring friends and family, a blanket and chairs, food and drinks, and enjoy.

THE FIRST OUTDOOR AMPHITHEATER IN THE YAMPA VALLEY COMING IN 2023

The lease has been signed! May 2, 2022, our dream for an outdoor amphitheater became official!

Piknik Theatre is collaborating with the Steamboat Springs School District to bring the Yampa Valley their first outdoor performing arts venue. We are increasing accessibility to the performing arts for the community by giving all arts organizations access to this beautiful facility. The amphitheater will be located next to the Strawberry Elementary School and Middle School, creating a new space for students to learn and engage with the arts in an outdoor environment.

It will also be the new home of Piknik Theatre's summer season!
