Join AHS and guests for Aspen History 101, a crash course in local lore shared as a theatrical performance in the style of the no-credit, all-fun college of the Rockies also known as the Aspen State Teachers College. The performance features actors, actresses, song, dance, resurrecting the party-loving atmosphere of Aspen State Teachers College, arguably one of the more entertaining aspects of area history! The evening ends with a screening of the iconic 1993 film Aspen Extreme, which tells the well-known and oft-repeated story of two ski bums who ditch everything to live the ski instructor dream in Aspen. Get out your “onsies” and come in costume for just Aspen History 101, the film screening, or both!
