2019/2020 Season At A Glance

We Connect Aspiring Performers With the Community and
Resources You Need to Confidently Pursue the Performing Arts.

The Spark is a Boulder-based community where performing artists can learn and grow in a professional theatre setting. We offer unique theatre experiences for students with our musical theatre intensives featuring Broadway and professional actors, while community resources like our new rehearsal space are available to rent for your next play or project.

Our unique mentorship model will connect you with other artists who can help you along the way, whether you’re debating which college programs to audition for, or deciding how to pursue the performing arts as a career. Whether you're a student or an advanced performing artist, our community will ignite your spark for the arts.
