In the fall of 2021, Piknik Theatre launched our new educational theater programs. Our Director of Educational Outreach, Vivienne Claire Luthin, created curriculum to meet the needs of the community. We brought a "Create Your Own Play" workshop to the Montessori School and a three week workshop in Playwriting to the high school. The fall concluded with a production of Matilda the Musical Jr. at the Steamboat Springs Middle School. This was a collaboration between Vivienne Claire Luthin and the Middle School's band and music teacher, James Knapp.

Our 2021 Summer Season brought theater back to the Yampa River Botanic Park after an 18 month pause. This celebratory season brought a joyful production of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing, directed by Piknik's founder, Stuart Handloff.

 

In addition to Much Ado, actor and playwright, Sydnee Fullmer, wrote and directed the world premier of beloved new children's classic "The boy, the mole, the fox, and the horse" by Charlie Mackesy. This production brought messages of what it means to be strong, loved, and to find your way.
