Buntport Theater Company is a vibrant ensemble of six full-time collaborators in addition to a two-person Education Team located in Denver, Colorado. Intent on creating innovative and affordable entertainment, they write and produce all of their work. Each piece grows from a collaborative process, without specific directors or designers ... they brainstorm their way to any given solution, relying on the combined skills of the whole ensemble. They are the writers, the directors, the performers, the technicians ... even the administrators.
Known for unusual adaptations and quirky original comedies, they keep our seasons packed, debuting several new full-length productions in addition to a variety of less traditional programming. From live sit-coms to unique open mic nights to family friendly entertainment to an on-going series at the Denver Art Museum, they offer programs that appeal to all walks of life.
