The Great American Laughing Stock Company is Steamboat Springs, Colorado’s repertory theatre company
producing shows ranging from the family to the fantastical. Originally
started in 1971, GALSCO transformed in the summer of 2008 to begin
working outdoors to create thePiknik Theatre Festival producing
two shows in repertory during the month of July. Performances include a
classic Shakespeare comedy and an original work devised new each
festival season. Both productions seek to merge the outdoor fun of a
traditional picnic (you provide the blanket and goodies) with a
professional quality theatrical performance. Local actors as well as
graduates and students of the New Zealand finest dramatic conservatories
join forces to take theatre out of the box, build international
cultural exchange, and enhance the level of the performing arts in the
Steamboat Springs community.
