Deathtrap
May 24 – June 16

Gasp-inducing thrills and spontaneous laughter! Unknown dramatist Clifford Anderson has sent his new thriller to award-winning Broadway author Sidney for comment – or has he – without a success to his credit for some years, Sidney plots with his reluctant wife Myra about how best to plagiarize ‘Deathtrap’ and when Clifford turns up to discuss the play with the ‘Master’ events take a sinister turn.

Rated PG-13 for language, suspense and murders.


My Partner : Classic Melodrama and Olio
June 22 – August 18

It’s a melodrama and an olio! This classic, originally performed by The Imperial Players, returns to Cripple Creek.

Boo, hiss, cheer, and get ready for a roaring good time.

Rated PG, and great for families!


Grease
July 5 – August 17

Here is Rydell High’s senior class of 1959: duck-tailed, hot-rodding “Burger Palace Boys” and their gum-snapping, hip-shaking “Pink Ladies” in bobby sox and pedal pushers, evoking the look and sound of the 1950s in this rollicking musical. Head “greaser” Danny and new (good) girl Sandy try to relive the romance of their “Summer Nights” as the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through such songs as “Greased Lightnin’,” “It’s Raining on Prom Night,” “Alone at the Drive-In Movie” recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard, and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation.

Rated PG-13 for adult themes.


The Andrews Brothers
August 30 – September 15

A USO performance from the Andrews Sisters is in jeopardy of cancellation when they fail to appear shortly before curtain. Thankfully three earnest stagehands are determined to go on with the show! The Andrews Brothers is filled to the brim with 30 songs made famous by the Andrews Sisters and other top artists of the era. Mistaken identities and madcap adventures along with the music of an entire generation highlight this wonderful valentine to the heroes of World War II.

Rated PG
