The Millibo Art Theatre was named after two wonderful performers – Millie Harrison and Bo Frese – Millie and Bo. They exemplified the passion, dedication, and sense of play that we bring to all of our programs at the Millibo. We create “New Theatre” for children and adults that brings together the best of the performing arts. We build the audiences and the artists for tomorrow.
For the past 18 years, the Millibo has been an anchor for the Performing Arts Community of the Pikes Peak region. We are the only producing theatre company that creates a full season of new theatre for children and adults.
We educate our artists and audiences of all ages through ongoing classes, summer camps, and outreach performances. Last year over 25,000 artists, audience members and students experienced the MAT.

If you are standing at the top of the stairs looking down onto 109 pre-schoolers watching a show at the Millibo, the chairs look empty but are very, very noisy!
“The MAT is a wonderfully creative and energetic theater. Every production that I have seen there has been fantastic. I just wish that I had more time to come to more shows at this Hotbed of creativity in Colorado Springs.” — Keith E. Johnson Chief Creative Officer, ELOPE
