This is a worthwhile theater with great actors. Place change daily and they have matinees. This year we have seen dirty rotten scoundrel's which was excellent and hilarious. The actors really earn their keep. The theater is small enough that it allows a close and personal visit with the play. Highly recommended.

We've been coming to Creede for the theater since 1979, and we'll keep coming back till we can't! The productions are consistently fine--professional but unpretentious, with a neat mix of old pros and fresh new talent that always moves and entertains. Well worth the trip (which is beautiful)!

We saw 3 plays in 2 days. It was a wonderful experience. Very professional productions. Pre-show introductions to the thought processes behind the playwright. Backstage tours available. I'll be back.

Just saw Dirty, Rotten Scoundrels, Kind of Red, and Watson. All three plays were well done. The performers were awesome and the plays are well staged. Spending a weekend (or more) in Creede to sightsee and shop during the day then enjoy the theatre in the evening is a wonderful vacation!

An original play by John D'Antonio for his wife Caitlin. This is its' previer performance. It was great fun to watch and enjoy. You can't... More

If you haven't visited Creede, Colorado and taken in a show or two you are missing one of the true treasures of the Rockie Mountains. The theater is very quaint with professional cast and crew. The repretory format allows for seeing several different production in one weekend. If time permits take the backstage tour for some inside information and history... More

Like most creed rep productions this one does not disappoint. Great actors dealing with a very funny show. Im honored to point out that my home state of Oklahoma is highlighted in one scene by yet another Broadway play. All I can say about the musical number is that it is hilarious. What broadway thinks Oklahomans act like is what... More

This was our second visit to the Creede theater and the acting was wonderful once again. What an experience to have in such a small town. We saw the play "Kind of Red" which was a take off on the old Lucille Ball TV show. It was a joy to watch. I recommend going to this out of the way,... More

This was wonderful!!! It was hilarious, well executed, and a close set. Tickets were $40 and the theatre was packed on a Thursday. Purchase tickets in advance if you can. The lobby is a neat mix of cobblestone and new amenities. Adult beverages, soda, candy, chocolates, etc are available for purchase. These can be brought into the theatre too. There's... More
