The Westcliffe Center for the Performing Arts has just announced its 2022 season which runs from mid-May to the end of October 2022.

Held in the historic Jones Theater on Main Street, or outdoors in the grounds of the Feedstore Amphitheater, a wide variety of performances delight patrons of all ages. Imagine a Shakespearean evening in a cozy outdoor amphitheater, watching the sunset over the Sangre de Cristo Mountains while enjoying a family picnic on the lawn. Or catch a unique play performed in the beautifully restored Jones Theater in Westcliffe. All of this and more is available through the Westcliffe Center for the Performing Arts, a non-profit organization established in 1992 to improve the lives of those who live in and visit the area. In a rural community of less than 5,000 county residents, Westcliffe, Colorado offers a robust program of cultural and artistic performances presented by a dedicated group of artists and welcomes visitors from all over the United States for their season of summer theater.

“We are delighted to announce that the Westcliffe Center for the Performing Arts is back after canceling performances in 2020 and offering only a limited number of outdoor performances in 2021 due to the pandemic,” said director Chris Relph. “This summer, we look forward to bringing some sunshine into your lives with an exceptional selection of plays in both the Historic Jones Theater and the outdoor Feedstore Amphitheater Park.”

The 2022 theater season kicks off with Neil Simon’s Sunshine Boys which runs May 12-15 and May 19-22.

The season continues in June and July with two performances as part of Shakespeare in the Sangres, held in the outdoor amphitheater. Twelfth Night will run from June 10-12 and June 24-26. The Misanthrope by Molière will be presented from June 17 to 19 and from July 1 to 3.

In September, the Westcliffe Center for the Performing Arts will present the winners of the 2020 10 Minute Play Contest on September 16-17 and again on September 23-24.

To conclude the season, the theater will present John Van Drooten’s original comedy Bell, Book and Candle from October 21-23 and October 28-30.
