The KID Show

The Tree Watcher

devised & directed by

July 8 @ 11AM / July 9 @ 7PM / July 10 @ 11AM


The World Tree is in danger – fire is biting at her roots. It’s up to the Tree Watcher to protect the Tree that holds the Earth together. But they can’t do it alone. It’s only with the help of the Earth Movers and Air Shifters – and maybe a little rain – that they stand a chance at keeping the world together. Devised and directed by CRT alum Bethany Eilean Talley, this will be a show filled with movement and magic.

The KID Show’s mission is to provoke and empower the creative minds of local youth while placing them in a professional environment and encouraging them to play.


KID SHOW in the Park

This summer, CRT is partnering with the City of Creede, Mineral County, and Silver Thread Public Health to bring you theatre in beautiful Seime Park.

Do I have to wear a mask? Masks will be required at all times for all CRT in the Park performances.

Where is Seime Park? Seime Park is located at 130 Bee McClure Drive, across the street from Sunnyside Chapel and the Mineral County Cemetery. It is a 2 minute drive from town. There is a walking path from 2nd and Loma Street, as well. 

Is parking available? Parking is available around Sunnyside Chapel. CRT will have signage to guide you and a parking attendant on duty for all performances.

Are chairs provided for CRT in the Park? Patrons will need to bring their own chair or blanket.

What’s the weather like up there? For outdoor shows, please dress accordingly (layers for sun, wind, and maybe light rain!), bring an umbrella, and wear comfy shoes.

What if it rains? If it is clear prior to the performance that we will be forced to cancel, ticket holders will receive a call from our Patron Services staff. If it begins raining during a performance we will hold for 20 minutes to see if it clears; if we are unable to resume the performance we will cancel. If a performance, or any portion of a performance, is cancelled due to weather CRT will exchange your ticket for any future CRT in the Park performance.

Can I eat or drink during the performance? Due to strict regulations from the Actors’ Union, there is no eating or drinking (except water) during the performance. CRT will have chilled water for sale, but no other concessions.

COVID-19 Safety

Please read CRT’s COVID-19 Safety Protocols prior to attending any CRT in the Park performance. Many factors went into crafting these rules – your health and safety, and that of our staff, students, and artists was of the utmost importance. These protocols may change as summer goes on. Thank you for your support and understanding as we navigate new territory together!
