Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat, and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in "Seussical Jr.," a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony winners Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty.

Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos.

Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that's been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird.

Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him.

Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!

Utilizing over twenty hand-carved marionettes, this elaborate stage production of The Pilgrim's Progress features puppeteer David Simpich in the role of author John Bunyan as he recounts his fantastic dream of the journey of Christian, a sin-burdened every-man from the City of Destruction to the Celestial Gate.

His harrowing adventures along the Straight and Narrow Path bring to light and life the classic Bunyan “visions” of the Slough of Despond, Vanity Fair, the River of Death, battles with demons and dragons, imprisonment by Giant Despair, colorful discourse with an array of wise men and fools... and one defining moment at the foot of The Cross.

This Simpich production is not only an exciting introduction to this timeless story, but a vivid illustration of the very essence of Christian Faith.

"Fun Home" is the winner of multiple 2015 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Score, Best Book of a Musical, and winner of a New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award, Obie Award, Lucille Lortel Award, Outer Critics Circle Award, and Off-Broadway Alliance Award.

When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile, brilliant, one-of-a-kind man whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life. Moving between past and present, Alison relives her unique childhood playing at the family’s Bechdel Funeral Home, her growing understanding of her own sexuality, and the looming, unanswerable questions about her father’s hidden desires. "Fun Home" is a refreshingly honest, based on a true story, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.

“A rare beauty, extraordinary and heart-gripping.” –Ben Brantley, The New York Times
“The best musical of the season.” –New York Magazine
“Few shows are as moving, relatable, and funny.” –Associated Press
“The Best Broadway Musical in years, with the finest score in a decade.” –Huffington Post

Recommended for ages 14+

[more+]

The Iron Springs Chateau presents its first show of 2018, “A Precious Bit of the West…or…She Was Simply a Delight!” which opens on Friday, February 9.

This show, written by local actor and playwright Vicki Kelly, is a side splitting western melodrama where our heroine, Precious Delight, has traveled from England with her Aunt Ima Delight to claim the Buffalo Chips ranch, which she inherited from her uncle.

The evil Ralph Rancid, though, intends for the Buffalo Chips Ranch to become part of his spread, and will stop at nothing to make sure he gets it. Can Harry Hotline, the editor of the local paper, and his best friend Grizzly Jack help Precious and her Aunt Ima stake their claim before the Buffalo Chips Ranch goes up for auction?

The melodrama is followed by a sing-along intermission and a Mardi Gras themed Vaudeville style musical revue that will keep you laughing with songs, dances, jokes and crazy costumes! It’s a blast for the whole family! The show runs through August 11.

The show is directed by Rebekah Ratterree, musical direction by Bruce Littrell and Bonnie Hausknecht, costumes by Stephanie Bradley and choreography by Daisya Dowen and Rebekah Ratterree.

The Iron Springs Chateau has been bringing family-friendly entertainment to the Pikes Peak Region for over 50 years, and is a great way to spend the evening... whether for the entire family or a memorable date night.

Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat, and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in "Seussical Jr.," a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony winners Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty.

Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos.

Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that's been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird.

Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him.

Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!

Utilizing over twenty hand-carved marionettes, this elaborate stage production of The Pilgrim's Progress features puppeteer David Simpich in the role of author John Bunyan as he recounts his fantastic dream of the journey of Christian, a sin-burdened every-man from the City of Destruction to the Celestial Gate.

His harrowing adventures along the Straight and Narrow Path bring to light and life the classic Bunyan “visions” of the Slough of Despond, Vanity Fair, the River of Death, battles with demons and dragons, imprisonment by Giant Despair, colorful discourse with an array of wise men and fools... and one defining moment at the foot of The Cross.

This Simpich production is not only an exciting introduction to this timeless story, but a vivid illustration of the very essence of Christian Faith.

"Fun Home" is the winner of multiple 2015 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Score, Best Book of a Musical, and winner of a New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award, Obie Award, Lucille Lortel Award, Outer Critics Circle Award, and Off-Broadway Alliance Award.

When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile, brilliant, one-of-a-kind man whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life. Moving between past and present, Alison relives her unique childhood playing at the family’s Bechdel Funeral Home, her growing understanding of her own sexuality, and the looming, unanswerable questions about her father’s hidden desires. "Fun Home" is a refreshingly honest, based on a true story, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.

“A rare beauty, extraordinary and heart-gripping.” –Ben Brantley, The New York Times
“The best musical of the season.” –New York Magazine
“Few shows are as moving, relatable, and funny.” –Associated Press
“The Best Broadway Musical in years, with the finest score in a decade.” –Huffington Post

Recommended for ages 14+

The Iron Springs Chateau presents its first show of 2018, “A Precious Bit of the West…or…She Was Simply a Delight!” which opens on Friday, February 9.

This show, written by local actor and playwright Vicki Kelly, is a side splitting western melodrama where our heroine, Precious Delight, has traveled from England with her Aunt Ima Delight to claim the Buffalo Chips ranch, which she inherited from her uncle.

The evil Ralph Rancid, though, intends for the Buffalo Chips Ranch to become part of his spread, and will stop at nothing to make sure he gets it. Can Harry Hotline, the editor of the local paper, and his best friend Grizzly Jack help Precious and her Aunt Ima stake their claim before the Buffalo Chips Ranch goes up for auction?

The melodrama is followed by a sing-along intermission and a Mardi Gras themed Vaudeville style musical revue that will keep you laughing with songs, dances, jokes and crazy costumes! It’s a blast for the whole family! The show runs through August 11.

The show is directed by Rebekah Ratterree, musical direction by Bruce Littrell and Bonnie Hausknecht, costumes by Stephanie Bradley and choreography by Daisya Dowen and Rebekah Ratterree.

The Iron Springs Chateau has been bringing family-friendly entertainment to the Pikes Peak Region for over 50 years, and is a great way to spend the evening... whether for the entire family or a memorable date night.
