Exchange your tickets for tickets to Cyrano (running May 13- June 6):

To do this, please either call 719.685.6827 or email and our box office manager, Keith will assist your exchange.


Refund your tickets:

Reserve your ticket toward a future performance:

The price of your ticket will be considered a contribution to We Happy Few to help support us through this crisis, and if/when we remount The Count of Monte Cristo you will have a ticket reserved for you.


Thank you for your patience as we navigate this tough time, and please allow a couple of days for us to process all ticket refunds and exchanges.  Please stay healthy and safe, and we hope to see you at the theatre again soon.

Our latest Classic-In-Action is a tale of bloody, bloody revenge. 

Travel from a forgotten prison cell to French high society as Edmond Dantès conspires to kill the people who wronged him.  And We Happy Few knows that revenge is a dish best served with a signature cocktail . . .

Wronged and double-crossed by those he once considered friends, Edmond Dantes goes to extreme lengths to achieve the perfect revenge in Alexandre Dumas' classic tale of daring escapes, vast riches, sword fights, plot twists, and dishes served ice cold. We Happy Few's Classics in Action Series returns with a fresh adventure story that you will not want to miss!

Show contains some scary content, but is appropriate for all ages.  Running time is approximately an hour.
