Wheeler Sunset Sessions: Writ Large

Doors: 7pm | Show: 8pm

Aspen's Only Storyslam! 

True stories told to a live audience, no scripts no notes. A spoken-word story in front of a live audience.

Produced in partnership with Alya Howe, this series has been touching the hearts of all who have been involved. There is a tremendous value as a community to have our stories heard and to be a listener—a belief that everyone has a story. Writ Large will feature stories about the Wheeler or an experience in the Opera House.

This series has been touching the hearts of all who have been involved. We believe everyone has a story, in fact, many that are important to be heard in their entirety. The sharing of a true tale enables you to see where you now stand within the story, even what the story has to tell you.

The stories are true stories - well told - by the person who had the experience. It could be a story from childhood, a terrific feat, an aha moment or a touching tale. Stories come from everywhere; travel, childhood, neighborhoods, mountaintops, bus stops. Your experience and creativity in seeing the thread of a story in life's moments is the spark that brings it all to life.

    Sunset Sessions  

Sunset Sessions is the new mixed genre series at the Wheeler Opera House. Performances feature great music, spoken word, comedy and more, all taking place on the newly designed Wheeler Bar Lobby stage -- one of the best places to watch the sun set behind Aspen Mountain.

Sunset Sessions events will be free to the public. Limited advance seating reservations will be accepted one week prior to event date. Call or stop by the box office. Advance reservation seats must be claimed by 7:30pm or will be released.
