Thunder River Theatre

Impressive theatre from local teens via the Voices organization and one of their artist mentors, Shere Coleman. And impressive acoustic music from the Provo, Utah band Grizzly Goat. Talented people expressing themselves on KDNK.

Students from Basalt and Roaring Fork High Schools have been working with professional artist mentors to create two original 30-minute shows of spoken word, songs, poetry, puppetry, dance and mime. The show plays three times at Thunder River Theatre this weekend. 

Shere Coleman, one of those professional artist mentors, visited Express Yourself to talk about her art and also the show at Thunder River Theatre.
