Without the support of our Major Donors the beautifully renovated theatre we see today would not have been possible. Our capital donors’ generosity partnered with the enthusiasm and motivation of community minded citizens has provided an arts and entertainment asset to the City of Rifle and the surrounding areas. These donors have enabled us to bring new life to this historic building. Through their continued support we will continue to sustain and develop quality and frequency of programming at the Ute. Frankly, we could not do this without our community. We, and those we serve, deeply appreciate our donors’ generosity.
