Founder Anna Marie Wilcox conceived of BackStory in 2006 after recognizing a distinct lack of accessible performing arts opportunities in the Broomfield community where she lived with her family. With an extensive background in theatre education and production, Ms. Wilcox sought to establish an organization that would bring affordable performing arts classes and productions to all members of the community....

What We Do

BackStory accomplishes its mission by providing free theatre arts programs at schools and through other local organizations, by offering affordable class and performance fees, by reducing fees through student work-study programs and parent volunteer opportunities, by extending scholarships to families in need, and by making performances open to the public at a cost as low as $3 per ticket (and free for children under 4). This not only provides live theatre opportunities for young children and disadvantaged families who might not have access to more costly productions, but also helps to provide an authentic acting experience for students and gives students a sense of accomplishment and a forum to showcase hard work.

BackStory Theatre’s programs include theatre education classes and workshops which often culminate in small performances for family, friends, and community members as well as fully-staged youth theatre productions.

How We Do It

Fulfillment of BackStory’s mission to make theatre education and performance accessible to the public and to all economic levels is made possible through grants, charitable gifts, and program fees. Our programs would not be possible without your support! Donations can be made through our CO Gives Page, or contact us for information on BackStory Theatre sponsorship packages.
