Aspen History 101 & Aspen Extreme at Wintersköl™
Aspen History 101 and Aspen Extreme screening at Wintersköl™
January 9, 2020 @ 5:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Kick off the Wintersköl™ weekend with Aspen History 101 and Aspen Extreme screening, co-presented with the Wheeler Opera House & ACRA
Aspen History 101, a theatrical crash course in local lore, was born from 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! Attendees will receive an Aspen State Teacher’s College “student ID” which is good for one free beer at the bar following the “course.”
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!
