Butte Theater

History

The Butte Theater began as the "Butte Concert and Beer Hall" in 1896, when proprietors Halbekann & Hertz featured nightly entertainment with the Ladies' Vienna Orchestra. Sometime later, the theater re-premiered as the Butte Opera House under the management of D.R. McArthur. Within two years, numerous clubs and lodges were sponsoring parties and benefits at the Butte on a regular basis. Today, The Butte Theater is run by The Butte Theater Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit that provides professional theatre, community programming and educational initiatives. Continuing the long tradition, this year the theatre is celebrating 70 years of Classic Melodrama performed in Cripple Creek.
