Renting the Wright
In 2002, OCP became a tax-exempt, IRC, § 501(c)(3) organization. Our stated mission is to promote, produce and present for the enjoyment of the citizens of and visitors to Ouray County, Colorado, all aspects of the performing arts, with a special emphasis on the dramatic arts. Implicit in this mission is to provide opportunities for all members of our community, novice to professional, to participate in all aspects of the production of theatrical events. Further, in addition to presenting our own productions, OCP has sponsored presentations by other theater organizations, from outside the area, including a professional troupe of actors performing some of Shakespeare’s most popular plays in the parks in Ouray and Ridgway.
OCP has plans to sponsor and conduct performance workshops, again to encourage community participation and to develop performance skills. Members of the OCP board of directors, community members and guest artists will lead such clinics and workshops.
The Ouray County Performing Arts Guild is a not-for-profit organization, bringing high-quality events in music, dance, theater and other genres to Ouray and Ridgway since 1983. We sponsor a year-round calendar of exciting concerts and performances for the enjoyment of Ouray County’s residents, visitors and youth.
Over the past year, audiences in Ouray and Ridgway have enjoyed a great variety of OCPAG-sponsored events, ranging from exquisite classical concerts with Trio Solisti and the San Juan Chamber MusicFest to lively, engaging performances by Rodeo and Juliet, the 101st Army Dixieland Band concert and the Colorado Children’s Chorale.
