A Cripple Creek Christmas Carol 

When: Nov. 27-Dec. 31 2009
Price: $7.75-$12.75

They've been portrayed as puppets (the Shoestring Theater), mimes (Marcel Marceau) and even humans (your seventh-grade English class), but you haven't truly experienced Scrooge, Marley and their ilk until you've seen them portrayed as Gold Rush historical figures. Happily, the Thin Air Theatre Company will — wait for it — go for the gold this year with the return of A Cripple Creek Christmas Carol to the Butte Theater (139 E. Bennett Ave., butteoperahouse.com). The show, which opened on Friday and runs through New Year's Eve, is set in the 1890s, with real-life gold-diggers Bob Womack and Winfield Scott Stratton (well, actually, company members portraying them, since dead people generally make poor actors) working overtime to save the soul of a Scrooged-out Zachariah Gooch. Why, it's a miner miracle! Tickets for today's 1 p.m. show range from $7.75 to $12.75. — Bill Forman
