Creede Repertory Theatre Pride & Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice
July 26 – September 14, 2019

by Kate Hamill
based on the novel by Jane Austen
directed by Amanda Berg Wilson

You’ve never seen Jane Austen quite like this! With the heart of this masterful love story still very much intact, Kate Hamill’s farcical take on this time-honored staple of English literature has never been more captivating. Austen’s Mr. Darcy, Lizzy Bennet, and all the red-coated officers are still the classic characters you remember, but with a fresh energy and zest that’s both stunning and unexpected.

Venue: Main Stage
Genre:  Comedy
Rating: PG

Hazardous Materials
August 16 – September 13-2019

One apartment. Two different eras. Each creating unlikely friendships. In 1955, two widows explore a blossoming connection against all odds. In 2015, two reluctant co-workers sift through the belongings of an elderly and mysterious Jane Doe. Each pair discovers that in order to connect they must be willing to sort through, and learn from, the past. Hazardous Materials was a highlight of 2018’s Headwaters New Play Festival. We are thrilled to be able to bring this American play to our CRT audience for the first time.

Venue: The Ruth

Sound the alarm! There’s a teenager in the house and you know what that means? Boomtown Improv is THIRTEEN. Crazy hormones, selective hearing, stomping through the hallway, little regard for human cleanliness, consumption of only frozen foods, video game seclusion, and SO MUCH DIRTY LAUNDRY! We are Boomtown, and we do what we want! Except drive…because….we don’t have our license for, like, another 3 years. SO NOT COOL!
