Paul & Jennifer Harrison

My family started attending CRT plays in the summer of 1977, which was our first year in Creede. My parents immediately fell in love with Creede and all it has to offer and soon purchased our summer home in the mountains. It has been passed on to me and my family, and we adore Creede just as much as my parents. All that to say, this will be my 45th season of attending productions at CRT, and I can’t wait for this season to open.
