All about the Crested Butte Mountain Theatre
For over 40 years now, the Crested Butte Mountain Theatre has been delivering high-quality performances and entertainment to their adoring audiences. The first show ever performed by this organization was all the way back in 1972, created by a group of passionate individuals whose mission was to provide their beloved town with a bit of culture and entertainment. With little money and few staff members, their first production was Dark of the Moon, held outside on a hand-crafted stage in the moonlight. Audience members watched from blankets spread out in the grass as they cheered for their friends and family members demonstrating their talents and skills. Over the years, this group has grown and developed into the successful theatre company that it is today! The longest-running community theatre on the Western slope, this organization still strives to educate the Crested Butte and Gunnison Valley community with as many engaging shows as possible.
