Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre Enriches Grand County Culture
Since way back in the ‘60s, the Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre, or RMRT, has been bringing Broadway-quality shows to the stage. Shows like The Sound of Music and Footloose first graced the stage back then. In 1966, the Troupe of American College Players in Grand Lake was formed and put on shows until 1976, when it moved to Colorado Springs. Locals wanted more theatre after the Troupe’s departure, and thus worked in conjunction with The Grand County Theater Association to produce a summer theater featuring Kansas State University and Loretto Heights College at the Pine Cone Theater and an outdoor tent, as well.
Another 10 years down the road in 1986, community support and finances dwindled, resulting in the return-to-roots name change, back to the “Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre.” A few years later in 1995, RMRT came under new leadership while the theater more firmly entrenched itself as a cultural bastion of Grand County. During that time, the Youth Theatre Workshop Program came to life, ensuring the future of the theatre in the area. Finally, in 2005, the baton was passed to alums, and current directors, Michael Querio, Carol Wolff, Chad Scott, Jeff Duke, and Sally Scott. In 2011, the theatre opened its new home, a $5.2 million theatre space. Today, you can enjoy a year-round theatre calendar with shows for everyone.
