Work at CRT

Creede Repertory Theatre is a professional company located in southwest Colorado high in the Rocky Mountains. The Denver Post has named CRT as “among the top five theatres in the state,” USA Today has called CRT “one of the top ten theatres to see the lights way off Broadway”, and the National Theatre Conference gave CRT the Award for Outstanding Achievement in 2007. When you’re part of the CRT company, you will have the opportunity to work with other professionals from across the country in a true rotating repertory setting.

We produce seven to ten productions of diverse styles each season including musicals, comedies, dramas, classics, children’s theatre, improv, new works, and touring productions. The company arrives in mid-May and the season runs through early November. Most company members are contracted from mid-May through the end of August with some contracts running into the end of September. Our Outreach Tour company is contracted from mid to late September with the tour running into November.

Seasonal Employment


15-25 actors are hired each season to play multiple roles.
