Hot Night in the Old Town

A Classic Melodrama and Olio

Once upon a time, Cripple Creek was the definition of the rough-and- tumble Wild West! Travel back to 1896 when 9494 was full of mischief, madams, and miners! Boo the villain, cheer the heroine, and find your riches in this western melodrama that’s so hot, it’s on FIRE!!! We are proud to celebrate the amazing heritage of melodrama in Cripple Creek; every show is absolutely unique and this is a treat for the whole family!

Come early for our fantastic pre-show and bring the kiddos for their chance to shine at intermission!

  • "This was our first time seeing a melodrama and all 3 of us (including a 16 year old teenager) loved loved loved it! Amazingly fun singing and acting!"

  • "Loved the melodrama. Really enjoyed the whole cast's performance. Would certainly do it again."

  • "Audience participation in the form of cheering for the hero/heroine and boo-ing for the villains is encouraged, as is singing along. Plays are followed by an olio, an often hysterical bit of tomfoolery that includes all cast members... I recommend you go, let your hair down, and just have fun."

  • "If you are in the area, do not miss seeing a melodrama at the Butte Opera House. It may indeed turn out to be the highlight of your trip!!!"
