An improvised stop in Raton New Mexico on the way to Colorado ended up an unexpected pleasure. Walking down the historic main street I came across two beautiful buildings for entertainment, a classic main street movie theater and the Schuler Theater. As it was a Thursday night, there was no problem in getting a seat for that night's performance of Turn of the Screw. The adaptation of the Henry James novel was clearly inspired by the theatrical version of The Woman in Black, and the professional actors brought the chilling tale to life in this one-act play. So, for 15 dollars, I got to admire a gem of a building and see a play done well. For that money, you can just about afford an ice cream at intermission on Broadway ...

We visit Raton every summer and this year we finally got to attend a show at the Shuler. We purchased our tickets online with no problem, except that the instructions were to print the tickets bring them. We didn't have a printer, but went to the Visitor Center and they were very gracious helpers. It would be easier in the future if theater management accept the email confirmation with the scan code as an acceptable method to get into theater. Walking into the Theater, we were impressed with the beautiful artwork and architecture. The show, The Glass Menagerie, was outstanding! We had the most enjoyable evening and plan to get the tour of the theater the next time we're in town so we can understand its rich history. We'll definitely do this again. This theater and it's performances are truly a gem! We celebrated my grandmother's 94th birthday that day and the evening performance was a wonderful way to end the day.

While spending a weekend in Sugarite Canyon we made a coffee stop at Enchanted Grounds (that is another review but check them out too!). Visiting with the owner she encouraged us to check out the Shuler Theater's current production of Into the Woods. We did and it was an excellent show. The cast was amazing with several cast members playing multiple roles. A favorite of our family was Tamara Todres who played Jack's mother, Cinderella's stepmother, and granny (Little Red Riding Hood) as well as Nick Pappas playing Rapunzel's prince, Lucinda (stepsister), and Milky-white. The theater itself is beautiful and well maintained. It is decorated in great detail of the early 1900's. Plush chairs, ornate woodwork and painted ceilings. The two side balcony's were used in this production. If you are in Raton NM or even nearby it is worth checking out the schedule and enjoying a delightful and affordable evening of entertainment.

This is a must stop if you are in Raton, NM. It is the pride and joy of the town. We just happened to be there for the 100 Birthday Celebration. We were treated to entertainment, history, and a wonderful reception next door. It was so much fun celebrating with the locals, who were more than happy to share their town and experiences with us.

I'm not often interested in the scheduled events at the Schuler Theater, mostly stage plays and traveling music performers. But if you're going to see a show in Raton, the Shuler is the place to do it. Beautiful and authentic historic interior and exterior, the real deal, not some cheesy faux-western tourist trap. It's impressive that the Shuler employees and volunteers are able to keep it so well-repaired and operational.
To see a show, naturally, you have to buy a ticket. But the theater doors are often open to visitors during the day. I suggest calling for details before driving from out of town.

What a real treat it was to see the play. Grace and Glorie. I went on a Sunday matinee a little Leary of what kind of theater could be worth the 200 miles round trip in an old coal min inning turned tourist town. As soon as I enter the building I was taken back in time to a beautifully restored first class place. There was an elderly man greeting guest in the lobby as the staff was so cheerful. The play starts and immediately you real these two women are first class professional. A class job of acting and the set design was first cabin also. Those who don't know the plot should google and learn how these two characters from different times and places grew to love and care for each in a time of death. I love it so much that I drove back this Sunday for the final performance. I laughed and I cried. All I can say is the schuler theater is the place I want to go again and again

What could be better than live professional summer repertory in an historic and beautiful theatre. Although I live in Taos, I made the pleasant drive to Raton to watch a wonderfully hilarious adaptation of the irreverent Oscar Wilde's "The Importance of Being Earnest". Two weeks later I returned and was gripped by the two person performance of Henry James's brooding and mysterious "Turn of the Screw."
Hats off to everyone!

Sondheim and Shakespeare meet on the Santa Fe Trail in the metiulously restored 100 year old Shuler Theater. Like many Midwest pioneers, Two Pigs Productions headed West to strike it rich. Unlike most it has actually done it in a top-notch production of Sondheim's "Into the Woods." A bright and energetic cast of talented young professionals brings out the light and shadow of Sondheim's timely and challenging musical retelling of several well known fairy tales. Still one week to catch a bit of Broadway in New Mexico. Next up "A Midsummer Night's Dream."
