THEATRE FOR EVERYONE.
MISSION: Funky is a group of artists that are striving to bridge the gap between professional and community theater. We encourage all experience levels in an inclusive, safe yet adventurous environment. Theater for everyone!
Funky Little Theater Company is an intimate theatre on the Westside of Colorado Springs and is in the thick of SEASON SIX (!).
