About The Thanksgiving Play

Good intentions collide with absurd assumptions in Larissa FastHorse’s wickedly funny satire, as a troupe of terminally “woke” teaching artists scrambles to create a pageant that somehow manages to celebrate both Turkey Day and Native American Heritage Month.

Sopris Theatre Company at CMC

The Colorado Mountain College Theatre has been in existence for over forty years, first under the direction of Tom Cochran until 2007, then Gary Ketzenbarger until 2020. Brad Moore is now at the helm. In 2009 our Associate of Arts with an emphasis in Theatre was instituted, with students able to take a degree in that subject area. With the passage of the state-wide articulation agreement, students majoring in Theatre are now able to transfer their AA degree in full to virtually all the four-year Theatre programs in the state of Colorado.

CMC Theatre changed its name to Sopris Theatre Company at Colorado Mountain College to reflect our hybrid model of students and community members working together. This transformation reflects not only the growing breadth of the Theatre program, but also the nature of the company itself, which functions both educationally and as a true theatre of the community. CMC students and Roaring Fork Valley artists work side-by-side as actors, directors, designers, stage managers, and technicians. This collaboration between students and local professionals enhances intergenerational learning, leading the Sopris Theatre Company at Colorado Mountain College to new heights worthy of its namesake.
