"Unless the theatre can ennoble you,
make you a better person,
you should flee from it"
To advance the overall level of theatre arts in Colorado.
To provide student and professional theatre artists with training rooted in graduate-level curriculum, taught by theatre professionals; and to integrate this training into the development of new intermedia performance work that engages audiences in the social and human issues of our time.
How We Work
Visionbox Studio Theatre is a 501(c)3 non-profit Professional Actors' training studio in Denver. We pride ourselves on a passion for process and an appreciation for text based training.
Visionbox Studio Theatre training is centered around the Actor's Five Questions, first introduced by Earle Gister, Head of Acting at Yale School of Drama for nearly two decades from 1980-1999. This is a text based technique grounded in the exploration of complex theatre literature including, but not limited to, Chekhov, Ibsen, Strindberg, Classical and Contemporary American playwrights such as Tennessee Williams, Arthur Miller, Clifford Odets, Lillian Hellman, David Mamet, Sam Shepard, Horton Foote, and John Guare, and finally Shakespeare. All students at DADA are taught by Master Teachers and learn from the same material, regardless of enrollment in the Apprentice Program or the Adult classes.
Visionbox is the ONLY acting studio in Denver to combine students of all ages, levels, and backgrounds in the same classes of rigorous, text based training.
