The Sheridan Opera House, connected to the New Sheridan Hotel and otherwise known as “The Crown Jewel of Telluride,” was built in 1913. It began its legacy as a vaudeville theater and cultural center, and attracted a wide variety of shows, orchestras, and touring theater companies to its grounds.
Fast forward to today, this 240-seat, cozy theater houses the Sheridan Arts Foundation and has transformed into a non-profit venue, benefitting charitable organizations such as the Boys and Girls Club of America.
Families also flock to this theater for big-name concerts in a small and intimate setting. Kids ages 2 to 18 can also perform in shows here.
