DEAR CRT PATRONS,
2020 was a year of REASSESSMENT for all of us, as we were forced to take a fresh look at our priorities, objectives, and needs. For Creede Repertory Theatre, that meant stepping back from in-person shows and focusing on what we could do while we waited. We repaired and upgraded many of our facilities, and we began to dream and plan for the day we could bring theatre back to Creede.
2021 has been a time of RETHINKING our paradigms about theatre. Due to state mandates and requirements put in place by the acting union, indoor shows were not an option this season. CRT expanded its view, literally and figuratively, by taking theatre to the park. Our shows have been fun, wonderful, and well-received. The expense of creating an outdoor infrastructure, as well as limited seating and fewer shows, makes this season less profitable and more a labor of love and a commitment to our patrons and community.
2022 is going to be a year of RESTORATION! Our goal is to return next summer with a larger lineup of fantastic productions indoors and outdoors. Your support is invaluable as we move forward in this endeavor. Please help us as we put the financial challenges of the pandemic behind us and move back into our theatres, which are beloved and have been missed by so many these last two years.
