About Us

Founded in 1982, Town Hall Arts Center (THAC) is the vibrant hub of arts and culture in Littleton, Colorado. 

Our landmark building is a crowning jewel for historic Downtown Littleton’s vibrant Main Street. Inside, is south metro Denver’s most intimate live theatre with 260 seats and the administrative offices for our nonprofit organization.

Our mission is to enrich the cultural, social and educational life of south metro Denver through professionally produced live theatre, concerts, fine art exhibits and other events, and through educational programs for children and adults. Our vision is to be the premier provider of cultural arts experiences in the region we serve. 

THAC produces six main stage productions and concerts from September through June and a year-round theatre education program for students of all ages. We are also home to the Stanton Art Gallery, which features exhibits from local talent. We invite you to learn more about our accomplishments in THAC’s Annual Reports.

THAC continually advances; improves; innovates — and brings joy, inspiration and meaning to tens of thousands of people each year. We welcome you to join us.

History

When it was built in 1920, our building served as the hub of life in Littleton. It originally was the City of Littleton’s Town Hall. Our lobby housed the city’s fire truck; the basement where we build stage scenes was Littleton’s jail; and our second-floor auditorium is where the city council met, court was held and residents turned out for plenty of community dances. City offices dominated what is now the Stanton Art Gallery.

In the mid-1950s, a new municipal center was built about six blocks away, and the old Town Hall stood vacant for almost three decades. In 1980, a group of local citizens decided our growing city — and all of south metro Denver — needed a performing arts center. They mounted a fundraising campaign, and two years later, a newly expanded and remodeled building called the Town Hall Arts Center staged its first season. The organization was founded, and continues to operate, on the belief that the immediate availability of excellent performing and visual arts significantly enriches life. THAC is governed by a volunteer board that oversees our professional staff. 

Today, THAC provides quality live theatre, music and dance in what The Denver Post has called “one of the most appealing intimate theatres in the region” and arts-education programs throughout the communities we serve. As the hub of arts and entertainment for the city, THAC also anchors Downtown Littleton’s historic and vibrant Main Street, a three-block district largely occupied by locally owned retailers and restaurants. Each year, THAC accounts for more than 25,000 visits to Downtown Littleton and contributes more than $500,000 directly to the area’s economy, according to an economic impact study conducted by the City of Littleton.

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The Board and Staff of Town Hall Arts Center has begun the work of dismantling systems of oppression and racism in our country by educating ourselves and changing our theatre’s culture.

We recognize the importance of the principles of DEIB — Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging — and make a conscious effort to embrace the diverse narratives and voices in our community. We also recognize this commitment to diversity must be a mindful, proactive and an ongoing effort. We may not always get it right, but we will never stop trying to improve.

At Town Hall Arts Center, we strive to elevate and inspire the individuals and communities historically underrepresented, misrepresented or excluded from our field. We focus our efforts on connecting and building meaningful relationships across all cultures. We believe that together we can begin to make this change and reach higher levels because of our diversity.

Town Hall Arts Center commits to being an ally and advocate for diverse voices, and we will continue to expand opportunities for artists through our selection of presentations, casting and creative teams. We continually seek to improve our workplace culture and create an environment of belonging for all people.

Town Hall Arts Center continues ongoing anti-racism training for all our Board and Staff so they may contribute to the organizational culture that supports all people who identify as black, indigenous, people of color, women, people with disabilities, LGBTQ+ and of different religious or ethical beliefs.

As long as we are willing to listen and learn, we will do the work and move forward as a diverse and inclusive community, making everyone feel they belong.  This will make us greater.

Grounding Statement

THAC acknowledges that the land we occupy today long has served as a site of meeting and exchange among a number of Indigenous peoples, specifically the Cheyenne, Ute and Sioux. THAC respects the diverse Indigenous peoples connected to this territory on which we gather.
