Main Street LIVE

Main Street LIVE—A New Direction for Southern Colorado Repertory Theatre (SCRT) 

Along with many other organizations hit hard by this year’s events, SCRT has had to rethink how to do business to survive. The SCRT Board is moving in a new direction that focuses on community rather than repertory theatre. To help move the theatre in its new direction, a new name and branding position have been developed. The SCRT community is very excited about the new brand and believes that Main Street LIVE communicates that the theatre is MORE than just a venue for plays.

The theatre will be branching out with comedy shows, musical acts, business conferences, game nights, talent shows, and other events that will promote and enhance the role of Main Street LIVE as “your” community theatre, while maintaining its commitment to high-quality theatrical performances for audiences of all ages.
