The Importance of Being Ernest

Mon. Dec. 23

by Oscar Wilde

Directed by Kyle Haden
Comedy, Farce
CRT Mainstage   MAP

It’s 1895 and Jack Worthing is engaged–that is if he can convince his potential mother-in-law to accept him. And that might prove difficult since his fiancé thinks his name is Ernest. Oh, and he doesn’t know who his parents are. Not to mention his ward thinks she’s ALSO engaged to Ernest. Oh dear! Mistaken identities and the search for one’s true self frame Oscar Wilde’s most famous comedy of manners.

Fully Committed

Mon. Dec. 23

by Becky Mode

Directed by Steven Cole Hughes
Comedy
The Ruth Humphreys Brown Theatre  MAP

This laugh-out-loud comedy follows a day in the life of Sam, an out-of-work actor who manages the red-hot reservation line at the number-one restaurant in town. A cast of desperate callers will stop at nothing to land a prime reservation: impatient socialites, celebrity assistants, top restaurant reviewers, and even a mobster; interrupted only by demands from a hot-headed chef, Sam’s father, agent, boss, and oh so many more. Graham Ward returns to the CRT stage tackling 40 different characters in this comedic tour-de-force!

Headwaters Program

Mon. Sep. 30

2020 FESTIVAL UPDATE

**In April, Creede Repertory Theatre made the difficult decision to postpone our 2020 season lineup of plays and events to 2021, including the Headwaters New Play Festival. We look forward to seeing you in 2021! For more information about our season changes, click here.

_________________________________________________________

WHAT IS THE HEADWATERS PROGRAM?

One third of the productions CRT has produced over the last 20 years have been World Premieres. Why are new plays so important to CRT? Because they are the lifeblood of the American theatre. They share with us the diverse, yet universal, human experience.

The Headwaters Program promotes three avenues for new work:

The Headwaters New Play Festival, which takes place in late August, presents staged readings of two, never-produced new plays. One of these plays may be selected to have a fully produced World Premiere production in an upcoming season.

The KID Show is a commissioned work which takes local young people (ages 10-18) through the process of creating a fully produced, original show.

And finally, our Young Audience Outreach Tour (YAOT), which brings high quality musical theatre to rural and underserved communities. This program annually produces an original children’s show, grades K-6 grade, that tours throughout the southwest.

2019 FESTIVAL SELECTIONS

Into Place by Skye Robinson Hillis

In a small town in Indiana, Frank Wheelan has lived every day the same since he can remember. Work, beer, bingo, Amazing Race night. When a former childhood crush returns to town with her ailing son, he begins to see things in a new way and his small life begins to grow and soon fills him to the brim with emotions and motivations he doesn’t understand. As she grapples with potentially losing her son, Frank and his friends learn to open themselves up to new possibilities and prepare for what may await them outside county lines.

North Star by Georgette Kelly

Summer in the north woods of Minnesota. The days are long. The stars are bright. But when it gets dark, it gets really dark. NORTH STAR is a new play that centers around an all-female group of campers and counselors coping with violence that leaves them utterly vulnerable. At the crux of this play is the question: what happens when social contracts are broken, when gun violence breaks through places that should feel safe, and when young people lose trust in the adults in their lives? Their stories are entwined with the French Canadian myth of La Chasse-Galerie, in which a group of voyageurs made a deal with the devil to journey home in a flying canoe in order to see their lost loved ones. This play takes a hard look at wilderness, both historical and contemporary: from the isolation of the woods in the 19th century to the wild rash of gun violence currently sweeping our nation. The characters in NORTH STAR are all explorers, trying to find a path through their own frontiers.
