College and University Theatre Programs
Here you will discover several college and university theatre programs that laid the ground work and succeeded in growing the theatre arts in Colorado. A few programs of note include: The University of Denver which housed the Denver Civic Theatre in its early years. The Denver Civic Theatre grew into The Bonfils Memorial Theatre located on East Colfax in 1953. There were also the marvelous theatre programs at the now defunct, Loretto Heights College (located in Southwest Denver) and Colorado Women's College (located in East Central Denver).
