Arts & Entertainment

Ridgway, Colorado is a vibrant, creative community that thrives on our inspiring setting, with many venues from galleries to festivals where artists and performers display their talents.

Community Theater

Community theater is an important part of our culture in Ridgway and Ouray County with many venues offering a variety of performances. The Wright Opera House and the Sherbino Theater host a number of musical, performing arts and theater events throughout the year as well as weekly independent films and melodrama.

Ouray County Players are one of the many productions companies who do summer theater at the Wright or Sherbino, with productions like the musicals, “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” and "Annie" to mention a few. They are also known for their melodramas during the month of July. Weehawken Creative Arts does full-scale dance productions including The Nutcracker, featuring more than 250 area youth. These performances and many others are an important part of our community and should not be missed. Be sure to check out the Ouray County Calendar for these and much more!
