Make sure to see a show there - we laughed through the whole evening! The actors put on a great show, with great sets, costumes and music. Kudos to them, they obviously work hard.

Just saw TATC production of Pippin. It was so much fun. I would love to see it again before the end of the summer. Planning to see their other show soon. If you're in Cripple Creek you should see a show.

Another thumbs up for the production of "Pippin." We saw the Sat. matinee and were blown away with the quality of the actors and the entire troupe. It was nothing short of a Broadway show, and we were delightfully entertained throughout the entire production. Fabulous...More
