The Breckenridge Theater has been through several remodels since the 1960s and ’70s when it housed The Cow Palace restaurant, a bronze foundry, and finally the landmark Shamus O’Toole’s Roadhouse Saloon before becoming a community theater. The 2002 remodel, funded by the Town and a long list of donors, created a permanent home for the Breckenridge Backstage Theatre, its now resident company. Remodeled again in 2016, today’s Breckenridge Theater has a false front, a storefront window, and barn doors that open onto the Arts District campus. Inside, it sports a contemporary look with a spacious lobby that doubles as a gallery space, and 137 cozy seats. The Backstage Theatre, a 501(c)(3) community organization, continues to offer community-based and professional theatrical productions, and classes and camps for all ages. Technological upgrades to the facility accommodate other cultural offerings from speaker series and films to intimate concerts.
