This show is the cultivation of a puppet theater class at the GAC which included all phases of play production: rehearsals, improv, sets, puppet making, costumes, poster and finally the show itself. The choice of the play is up to the puppeteers themselves and depends also on the size of the cast, but the selection they make is bound to be full of music, laughter and gags from a show in the repertoire of the Back Porch Puppeteers* Come and be part of the fun and revelry of live puppet theater. Entry Fee: $5/person & a donation jar for the performers
Gunnison Valley is also host to several beloved annual events. A classic winter event is The Alley Loop, a Nordic ski race that doubles as a costume contest. In fall, Mt. Crested Butte hosts the famous Chili and Beer Festival. Every summer in Gunnison, a crowd gathers to watch America’s fourth-oldest rodeo, Cattlemen’s Days. There are also festivals in Crested Butte that celebrate local art, music, wildflowers, and more. Attending an annual event is a good way to connect with the culture of the Gunnison Valley. You might even create a new tradition for you and your family and friends!
