About Our Artistic Events
ABOUT OUR ARTISTIC EVENTS
In 1975, Theatreworks founder Murray Ross came to UCCS to start a theater program. Determined to establish a landmark artistic hub for both UCCS and the entire Pikes Peak region, he turned a small troupe of thespians into one of the best professional theaters across the Front Range. As the years and great productions went on, Ross presented his idea for an all-encompassing community arts space to house Theatreworks and more. With dedicated help from UCCS Chancellor Emerita Pam Shockley-Zalabak, Ross and nearly 100 community collaborators helped secure the vision of the Ent Center in 2015, marking another milestone for the arts in Colorado Springs. Colorado Springs and the Ent Center are proof that cultivating a rich arts scene takes a village.
ABOUT OUR FACILITY
The Ent Center for the Arts is a 92,000 square-foot arts complex on the University of Colorado Colorado Springs campus. It was designed by H3 Hardy Collaboration Architecture, a recognized leader in the planning and design of arts centers and cultural facilities, to provide a multi-dimensional, multi-venue artistic hub for both the campus and the wider community. It has 4 main venues as well as smaller intimate spaces for studio performances and rehearsals.
