OPERATION OUTDOOR THEATRE
April 9, 2021
Hello CRT Friends,
Spring is officially here! Things are blooming, mud season is almost over, and like all of you, CRT is looking forward to another bustling summer in Creede.
The past year at CRT has been about reframing the limitations of a pandemic into opportunities for innovation and joyful renewal. CRT’s 56th Season will be a new and exciting experience for our staff, artists, students, and patrons. We are heading outside! Piloted beautifully by 2020’s innovative outdoor KID Show, CRT is taking our whole season to the great outdoors for the very first time.
This year, CRT will set three plays against the beautiful scenery of Creede, CO with an open-air stage and seating area in Seime Park above town, across from the Sunnyside Chapel. CRT in the Park will offer six performances a week, Wednesday through Sunday, from June 25th through September 4th. On May 1st, show titles will be announced and tickets will become available.
The beautifully renovated outdoor seating space at the Creede Hotel & Restaurant will host Boomtown every Friday night and an original CRT Cabaret on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings from July 1st through September 4th. Let your favorite CRT company members uplift your dining experience with a different Cabaret each night. Boomtown tickets will go on sale through CRT starting May 1st. Tickets for the Cabaret can be reserved through the Creede Hotel & Restaurant at 719-658-2608.
Education at CRT is ready for another amazing summer of Day Camps, The KID Show, and the Young Audience Outreach Tour. Camps and KID Show registration is open now, so visit the EDUCATION to learn about our specific offerings and reserve a spot for your student!
CRT is committed to continuing our health and safety protocols in all spaces, crafted in partnership with Silver Thread Public Health with adherence to state mandates and Actors’ union requirements. Attendance will be limited for all performances, patrons will be socially distanced, and masks will be required at all times. Learn about our safety protocols HERE. Many factors went into crafting these plans, aimed to protect the health of our staff, artists, students, and patrons and keep our theatre open for Summer 2021.
We can’t wait to see you live and in-person this summer. Thank you for all your support and understanding as we navigate these uncharted territories. As always, I would love to answer any of your questions – please don’t hesitate to reach out or stop me at the K-Belle. I hope you and your family are staying healthy and well.
All the best,
Producing Artistic Director
