Community Programming

The Butte Theater Foundation is dedicated to providing a creative home for our local community to experience, explore and participate in the Arts.

Our Community Season of theater runs from January-May and provides free movie nights, affordable tickets to see professional touring acts, a community theatre production, and a community talent show.

Teller County is full of both artists and art lovers and we are so excited to celebrate that with you! The Butte Theater Foundation is also committed to helping grow opportunities for art outside of our space. If you need help with your event, a space to hold meetings, support for your organization – let us know!

Together, let’s continue to explore and celebrate art here in Cripple Creek.

Almost, Maine
By John Cariani
Directed by Mike Green

A woman carries her heart, broken into nineteen pieces, in a small paper bag. A man shrinks to half his former size, after losing hope in love. A couple keep the love they have given each other in large red bags, or compress the mass into the size of a diamond. These playful and surreal experiences are commonplace in the world of John Cariani‚Äôs Almost, Maine, where on one deeply cold and magical Midwinter Night, the citizens of Almost — not organized enough for a town, too populated for a wilderness — experience the life-altering power of the human heart. Relationships end, begin, or change beyond recognition, as strangers become friends, friends become lovers, and lovers turn into strangers. Propelled by the mystical energy of the aurora borealis and populated with characters who are humorous, plain-spoken, thoughtful, and sincere, Almost, Maine is a series of loosely connected tales about love, each with a compelling couple at its center, each with its own touch of sorcery.
