The performers are not locals; they are professionals that come from all over the country and bring with them a variety of experience. The quality of acting, singing, production, etc. was very high and made for an extremely entertaining and professional... More

We do our best to see every production. The only thing that can hold us back is the weather, primarily during the Christmas show. Mel runs a phenomenal theater. As long as Mel is there, you can be certain that the entertainment will be best in class. The gleam in his Mel's eyes tells you just how much pride he... More

I heard about the Christmas Blaze, an original play by Chris Sorensen, on Colorado Public Radio. My husband and I have a cabin near Cripple Creek and decided to attend a Christmas 2013 performance. It was delightful, original, funny, sweet and completely worth the drive home in a snowstorm! They really do put their hearts into the production. But it's... More

These guys put their heart and soul into everything they do. We have been to numerous shows and they never disappoint. It's really fun and totally worth the price. We take out of town visitors and they love it. They are also really cool about kids coming.

Cripple Creek is an historic and very scenic Colorado mountain town and the site of a major gold rush in the 1890s.

TATC is the most worthy successor... More
