Welcome to the home of western Eagle County’s premier theatrical community! Porchlight Players was founded in 2004 to provide opportunities to both attend and participate in live theater in western Eagle County.  While numerous theatrical opportunities exist in the eastern end of the valley around Vail and Beaver Creek, distance and cost combine to make live theater inaccessible to a great number of people in our west-end communities.

Our mission is simple:  provide convenient and economical access to live theater, be it through attending performances or participating in the production of theatrical events. By the end of our 2013 season, we will have completed 28 productions:  nineteen plays/musicals, seven Summer Children’s Theater Camps and two cemetery tours in Red Cliff and Gypsum. This year, we are adding a  murder mystery selection to our schedule in November! We are currently planning our 2014 season, which will include our sixth free Play in the Park in Eagle, our eighth  Summer Children’s Theater Camp held in Gypsum and our fourth Valentine’s Day dinner theater at the Brush Creek Pavilion.  We have worked relentlessly to make our vision a reality.

Porchlight Players relies completely on community support to fund its productions.  The people of Eagle and Gypsum have shown that they support a local community theater company, and we have received consistent support from both Town of Eagle and Town of Gypsum, local businesses and community members through sponsorships, advertising in our programs and gate receipts.  We are committed to using these funds as responsibly as possible to maintain the trust of those who have given to us.  Please consider supporting Porchlight Players! Contributions may be made on our web site, or by mailing your tax-deductible donation to: Porchlight Players, P.O. Box 5004, Eagle, CO 81631. On behalf of the entire company, we thank you for your interest in and support of live theater in our community!
Ann Olin, President, Porchlight Players Community Theater Company
