2018 is the 70th Anniversary of Melodrama in Cripple Creek!
  • " I love the place! It's like taking a step back in time! What fun! "

  • " Love, love, love, the whole experience of seeing melodramas at the Butte! The old building it is in, its history, the decor, the bar, the music, the people in the audience are a hoot. "

  • " Simply the Best! First class theater at 10,000 feet. They will take your breath away. "
