Work with Us

Founded in 1966, Creede Repertory Theatre (CRT) is a 501(c)3 non-profit professional theatre company with an annual budget of $1.7M. From its Rocky Mountain roots, CRT serves as an artistic home to our rural community and beyond, through the creation of repertory seasons, dynamic educational programs and compelling new works. With deeply rooted values in equity, diversity and inclusion, CRT is committed to being a haven for artistic excellence, belonging, and intrinsic joy.

Located at 9,000 feet in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado, the historic town of Creede offers beautiful views, hiking trails, and stunning campsites in a county comprised of 97% public land.

The Denver Post has named CRT as “among the top five theatres in the state;” USA Today has called CRT “one of the top ten theatres to see the lights way off Broadway;” and the National Theatre Conference gave CRT the Award for Outstanding Achievement in 2007. CRT was featured on the front page of the New York Times Art & Leisure section in 2021 with an article touting Creede as the “triumph of the Friday night footlights.”

CRT’s Commitment to Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Access

Creede Repertory Theatre is striving towards a Culture of Belonging for everyone who comes through our doors. We have made great progress as an organization, and acknowledge that there is still a lot of work to do. We will continue practicing self-reflection by asking the tough questions, listening deeply to our community, and implementing practices and policies that affirm and uplift others’ humanity. We are committed to being your theatre, always. To see our full EDI Statement, Commitments, and Updates, click here.

Creede Repertory Theatre is an equal opportunity employer and strongly encourages artists from historically excluded communities to apply.

2024 Season Auditions In-Person & Video Submissions

In reference to the character descriptions below: most characters we currently encounter are on the binary and are written with he/him or she/hers pronouns. However limiting the descriptions are, our casting seeks to be as inclusive as possible and we invite gender non-conforming, genderqueer, transgender, and non-binary actors to submit for the roles they most identify with. We also list race/ethnicity when specific to the character but are otherwise seeking actors of diverse backgrounds and abilities. Please note that actors will be cast in two or three productions as is the nature of repertory theater.

Don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any questions, concerns, or if you are an actor who might need specific accommodations we can provide. Creede Rep currently offers child care assistance. Please inquire about how we can support you and your family’s needs.
