From there it is an easy and beautiful 3+ hour drive to our mountain paradise. Alternatively, United offers 2 daily flights from DIA to the Hayden/Steamboat Springs regional airport, a quick 20-minute drive to downtown Steamboat Springs.

Once in town, you can rent a car, or use the Free Bus to travel between the ski mountain and downtown. The mountain is about a 30 minute walk from downtown.

The Festival is a casual gathering of theatre lovers, so there are no assigned seats for any readings or meals.

What is a reading?2021-12-13T21:14:16+00:00

New play readings are a vehicle for a playwright to get a better sense of what s/he has written and how a live audience reacts to it. The actors stand or sit at music stands without costumes, scenery or lighting; but after a week of rehearsal with the playwright and director they read the work with the same depth and passion that a full production would have. This allows the creative team to focus solely on the words and the arc of the story.
