Creede Repertory Theatre
An original, exciting Season for 2009
2009 marks Creede Repertory Theatre’s 44th season.

Located in Colorado’s scenic San Juan Mountains, the CRT invites you to experience nationally-celebrated theatre at what USA Today calls “one of the 10 great places to see the lights off Broadway.”

CRT’s 2009 Season offers a rich variety of plays, and with a unique repertory format, visitors can see up to five shows in a week.

‘A Wonderful Noise’

Book by Michael Hollinger; music, lyrics and story by Michael Hollinger and Vance Lehmkuhl.

This delightful musical about a battle of barbershop quartets blends toe-tapping tunes, high-energy farce, and unexpected romance to make a very wonderful noise.

‘The Imaginary Invalid’

By Molière; translation by Nagle Jackson.

From the master of farce comes the tale of a miserly hypochondriac, whose imaginary illnesses (and very real wealth) are a prescription for outlandish comedy.

‘Swiss Family Robinson’

Book and lyrics by Jeff Carey; music by Jessica Jackson.

This CRT original adaptation of the classic tale of a castaway family is a magical, musical adventure for all ages.

‘Kimberly Akimbo’

By David Lindsay-Abaire.

This dark and ultimately touching comedy was heralded by the New York Times as “at once a shrewd satire, a black comedy, and a heartbreaking study of how time wounds everyone.”

‘Grimm Pajamas’

Book and lyrics by Jeff Carey; music by Jessica Jackson.

Be prepared for a rambunctious, bed-bouncing, beast-bashing hour as the Brothers Grimm sing and squabble their way through your favorite fairy tales.

‘Boomtown’

Improv comedy at CRT.

‘CRT Songbook’

You’ll hear some of your old favorites — and perhaps a few new favorites, too — when the entertainers of CRT bring you several unforgettable evenings of song.
