Rainbow Fish Auditions
Sign up to Audition for our Winter/Spring production of the 1 act Play - Rainbow Fish, based on the beloved children's book!
BackStory Theatre offers a variety of opportunities for creativity and connection!
Our in-studio classes feature small class sizes to allow for physical distancing, mask-wearing, no food or beverages in the studio, and enhanced cleaning protocols including a new UV-C Hepa air filter. Performance-based classes culminate in a public performance at the Broomfield Auditorium with audience sizes dependent on current COVID ordinances. We have classes for ages 3-18 and offer opportunities at a range of times to fit your schedule! Please contact us if you'd like to schedule a custom group class!

WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING ABOUT BACKSTORY?
"I learned how to work well with others, I became closer with some people in the backstory community, and I was able to become a better leader." ~ Youth Leadership Program student
"Great job. Love that the kids participate in writing the script. Very fun!" ~ Audience feedback from Fantastic Family Theatre summer show
"My students and I loved the performance. The student actors were so professional, the sets were amazing and the production was excellent. My students also loved being able to talk to the actors and ask questions about how they prepare for the production and what it's like to be on stage. We came back to the classroom singing the songs and the kids talked for many days about how awesome the show was." ~ Teacher whose class participated in a free musical theatre workshop
"BackStory has been a wonderful outlet for my kids and the benefits are immeasurable. They’ve gained confidence, stage presence & cooperation skills, and I think that has helped get us through some very crucial years in their development." ~ parent of Youth Theatre and Academy class students
"I cannot believe the confidence in these young children." ~ Audience feedback from Fantastic Family Theatre summer show
"This show is one of the best - if not THE BEST - Backstory show I've seen. You guys get better and better. Keep up the fabulous work and I look forward to seeing more of you all in the near future. Well done!" ~ Audience feedback from "Guys & Dolls"
"Being the only boy in the class, my child was apprehensive. This class taught that when he is with a group of people, no matter boy or girls, who have a common interest, he feels included. That was great for him to be involved in something predominantly with girls." ~ Parent of an Academy class student
