Prairie Playhouse is a large Community Theater based in Brighton and Thornton, CO. Currently celebrating its 8th season of productions, PPH brings many well-known shows to life on stage for all ages.

PPH is well-known for top-notch large-scale productions; bringing a professional, Broadway feel to a small town. With year-round sessions in theatre and performing arts education, all ages can learn under its many talented directors and instructors. A majority of its performers are locals from Brighton and Thornton. PPH feels lucky to have so much local talent, with new cast members in every show.

There are many ways to get involved with this rewarding community theatre. Volunteers help in the box office, back-stage, with costumes and props, with sets, and by continuing to enjoy one of PPH's five productions per season. Local business graciously sponsor our youth productions and education.

Shauna Marble - Executive Director

Shauna began dancing at age 4, performing in musicals at age 5, and went on to become an Elly Award nominated actress, award winning director, dancer, and performer, as well as World Champion Swing Dancer. She is so happy to share her talents with Colorado. Shauna derives great satisfaction from bringing community members into the world of performing arts (or bringing them back into it, as is the case with many of our adults), directing quality productions for a small stage, bringing professional-level instruction to youth in the area, and doing what she can in the world of theatre for her own community. Mother of 2 upcoming performers, she loves sharing her passions with her family. By day Shauna is a computer nerd, working in web applications for Charles Schwab, and when she can squeeze it in, she continues to enjoy her many one-on-one piano, vocal, and dance students. Though she has many "jobs," she feels all of them are the best in the world. She wishes to give a huge thank-you to the communities in Brighton and Thornton for their continued support of local arts, and urges its citizens to keep selling-out PPH productions so they can continue to make more of them!
