Dear Jack, Dear Louise

Creede Repertory Theatre comes to the Butte! Taking one of their Mainstage favorites on tour, Creede Repertory is bringing a unique, one-of-a-kind live theatre experience to the Center for the Arts in Crested Butte.

Sparks fly and love blossoms from a world away when US Army doctor, Jack, begins a correspondence with aspiring actress Louise, during WWII. Based on the story of his parents’ courtship during WWII, Tony Award-winning playwright Ken Ludwig (Sherwood, Moon Over Buffalo, Lend Me a Tenor) explores love, isolation, and hope over great distance.
