Support the Wright

Now that we've purchased the building, it's time to renovate it. As exciting as this sounds, it is no easy task! Our objective is to restore the Wright's history and culture, while upgrading it such that it can support contemporary performances.

And, though we have a long way to go, we've begun the process by adding new equipment such as sound, lighting and video, as well as the necessary infrastructure to support large events. What's next on our plate? Just the entire outside including the Mesker facade, the lobby, stairs, concessions, backstage and the entire theater. Yeah, we've a lot of work to do!

Fortunately, the Wright has a lot of fans. If you're one and you'd like to support our efforts, consider making a donation. Please contact us to find out how you can support the Wright.


We're working hard to make the Wright Opera House an open and welcoming venue to organizations throughout Colorado. We're also trying to restore a facility that is over 126 years old. Needless to say, we have our work cut out for us!
