the Crested Butte Mountain Theatre

The Crested Butte Mountain Theatre was born in the summer of 1972 by an energetic, talented group of people who had the vision to see a remote community provide some of its own unique culture. That might be the proper way of saying that a group of hard-core mountain folk conceived of an idea to try and infuse their community with more fun, fantasy, and freedom.


In 1998, the Mountain Theatre secured the Old Town Hall as a permanent home, leasing the space from the town, and allowing the company to produce major productions at the Center for the Arts and an increasing number of smaller performances at Old Town Hall. Throughout it’s 40 year history, it has produced over 200 plays.


Currently, the Mountain Theatre runs a youth Arts in Education Program called Teens on Stage and produces an annual season of plays.
