The Creede Repertory Theatre can be quite a surprise if you don't know that professional and upcoming acting students compete to win a place there for the Summer Season. The shows are diverse and professionally staged. The town is nestled into an historic mining district in the San Juan Mountains, where thousands of summer visitors flock to see spectacular natural...

We attended two shows on the final weekend of the season and I was blown away at how excellent this group did. We saw "August: Osage County" and they actually sat at the dinner table and ate, including opening two bottles of wine and drinking from them! Lines were flawless, every character totally believable. I've seen shows in New York... More

This repertory theatre is amazing and outstanding! They celebrated their 50th year anniversary this year and I feel privileged and honored to having been able to attend two performances!! This amazing company has grown from literally nothing to being internationally renowned, and all in the isolated small community of Creede, Colorado! Virtually none of the actors are Creede natives, but... More

Had to drag my husband and 2 boys (ages 8 and 11) to the theatre- about 10 minutes into it--they were hooked! We had a wonderful time and would've gone again on our trip but we ran out of time!

We went to Creede, Colorado for a weekend of fun. I was totally unprepared for the quality of acting when we saw a play in town. I had heard the plays were always wonderful but I never expected New York quality in such a small and remote community Well worth visiting! We stayed at Antlers Lodge and loved being right... More

Ok, I confess to being one of the twelve University of Kansas students who started this theatre back in 1966. I was also in the acting company in 2011 (my fifth season with CRT). But this past summer, in celebrating CRT's 50th season, the theatre has reached another landmark in its production of AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY. I traveled 700 miles... More

We had the most remarkable week of Theatre in Creede in late August. August:Osage County was beyond remarkable. The cast is 1st class...simply amazing talent...and, as dysfunctional as the family in this Pulitzer Prize winning play get, we found ourselves laughing out loud and quoting memorable lines for many days after. It was truly a tour de force. Our Town... More

Saw three shows in two days. All of them were well done. The performance of August, Osage County was especially good. Interesting the see the actors perform in different roles in each play. All of the cast and crew are professional and it makes for good theatre. Highly recommended.
