The West End Performing Arts Complex
The Future of The Butte Theater
The Butte Theater invites you to be a part of this exciting new Colorado performing arts complex project! Join us as we raise funds to expand our facilities.
We are currently working to be able to purchase The Star and The Horseshoe buildings and to expand our facilities to include :
- A new entrance to the theater
- Expanded lobby and bar space
- A small stage for additional performances
- Added restrooms
- Artistic and cultural galleries
- Display space or local businesses
- Added event space
- Artist residences
Located directly west of the theater, The Star Building is currently being leased and used as our scene and costume shop. A beautiful building with a grand staircase, The Star has enormous potential and would be a perfect addition to the Colorado performing arts community.
Located just west of The Star, The Horseshoe is a building of historical significance complete with lobby, stage, bar and upstairs space.
With an expanded lobby, an added bar and cabaret seating area, and a small performance stage, we have developed a Projected Revenue Plan that will help support the maintenance of the complex. We will be able to hold small performances before and after shows, and expand our bar and concession revenue. With these added income opportunities, we will be able to earn enough additional revenue to reach sustainability.
Our Creative Community
We are committed to the growth of our creative community in Cripple Creek and Teller County. By engaging our pool of local artists, small businesses, craftsmen, and volunteers, The West End Performing Arts Complex will create a space for bringing together artists and showcasing our wonderful history and culture.
