Liberty! Opium! Gunpowder!
Got your attention? Cripple Creek needs to raise a few extra dollars to produce Clybourne Park in May. We are leaving it all on the road for this one – Clybourne will have a larger production budget than any Cripple Creek show to date. We are raising salaries for our actors and production staff, and we are increasing allotments for promotions, materials and space rental. To meet our goals, we need your help to push us over the finish line and help us be all we can be.
So we’re throwing a party! Friday, February 1 at the Allways Lounge we are inviting one and all to join us for our “Carnival Carousal.” (RSVP on Facebook!) Just like our previous winter fundraisers, there’s a lot to love for just $20…

We don’t run from Mardi Gras, we run headlong into it! We take pride in making our fundraisers unmissable events, nights full of laughter and tasty treats and dancing, so we hope you can make our “Carnival Carousal” part of your celebration this year. Make no mistake: even after securing grant money to produce Clybourne, even after enjoying record profits from Balm in Gilead, even after company members kick in their own money… we still can’t do this without help from you. Your $20 makes all the difference.
Thank you to our peers and colleagues for your passion and talent, and thank you to theatergoers all across the city for supporting local theater.
