What is the Creative District?

This is the story about a town

with the SOUL of the


In winter, Grand Lake is a wonderland and in summer it is a tourist mecca. It is the western gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP). Those who travel over the highest continuous paved highway in the nation (Trail Ridge Road) through the Park in summer, descend into a vibrant valley full of Indian and western lore and a natural playground for young and old alike. People here are proud of their town. Some have lived here all their lives and some came as kids on vacation and then came back to retire. In these next pages, we will tell you more about our town and our plan looking forward to preserve and enhance what we have inherited.

Rocky Mountain Repertory Theater

Live Musical Theater

RMRT has strived to bring artistic excellence to Grand County by providing residents and visitors alike with a dynamic and fulfilling theatrical experience. For the past 10 years, the Rep has gone through an unparalleled period of activity. After strengthening the organization with a dedicated Board of Trustees, a new artistic and administrative staff was implemented in 2005. In 2011, we opened our very own theatre complex, following a successful $5.2 million Raise the Curtain capital campaign. Through it all, we have carried on our steadfast commitment to fiscal responsibility, accomplishing all of our goals resolutely within our means. We are grateful for your interest in supporting Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre and we encourage you to explore the many ways to help RMRT grow.
