We saw the show, Sherlock Holmes and the Cripple Creek Ripper. It was hilarious and the cast was fantastic!

I wanted to plan a "mystery trip" for my dear husband and our sweet neighbor who was celebrating her 91st Birthday. They both love Sherlock Holmes, so I thought the play would be just the ticket! Having never been there before, we were more than delighted with the gorgeous interior, still keeping the flavor of the 1800's. The actors were... More

Small regional theater located above the forestation. Both the theater and the performers do a very good job. The bar on site is a big plus. I recommend a table seat vs a row seat if you can get one. We've gone up to catch a show a couple of times and they put on a quality show.

We have gone to a few shows here and they've all been very good with professional actors. They offer afternoon show times as well as evening for reasonable prices. Something different in such a small town.

We went to 2 performances at The Butte Theatre this summer and both were exceptional. The cast performed in both performances of different productions, and did a fantastic job. The voices were professional and engaging. Cripple Creek is best known for casinos, but this theater easily outshines the gambling venue for an evening or afternoon out. It is family oriented...

Small & intimate venue, top talent from local and national sources, delivered with innovation and gusto. Have gone several times over the last 6 years and make it a point to go to a show whenever I'm in the Denver-Co Springs area. Inexpensive (typically less than $20) and you're never more than 75 ft from the stage. I sang in... More

Loved it! We spent the weekend in Cripple Creek and attended 2 difference performances. They were both excellent! Not sure how they do it, but the performers acted and sang in both shows! They were so entertaining...high energy, amazing voices! We will definitely be back for their next shows...my only compliant is that they don't offer season tickets!

I was pleasantly surprised when I visited the Theater to see "Guys and Dolls". I didn't expect to see such professionalism and I agree with clivepheasant's comment that this musical could be transported to Broadway or more with no change whatsoever. The entire cast was simply perfect in their role but Matthew Krob stole my heart. Tall, dark and handsome... More
