FAQS

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Are your shows family friendly?

Their shows have a good amount of adult humor peppered into the performances. Most of it will probably go over your kids heads. It’s up to you and your discretion if you want to enjoy the show with your little ones. Other than that, the language is clean and there is no nudity of any kind.

Can I attend just the show and not the dinner?

Absolutely! Call (719) 685-5104 for dinner or show only prices.

Do I need a reservation?

Not always! On regular show nights walk ins are welcome! However, having a reservations WILL guarantee that you can get in. There’s nothing more disappointing than coming all the way to the Chateau only to be turned away because they’re sold on. We would advise you to make reservations for special events like Rocky Horror Picture Show or Holiday Specials.

Is there any history to the Chateau?

Iron Springs Chateau began as a candy and cigar store that was operated for several years beginning in 1880. Iron Springs, changed owners several times before the Iron Springs Company purchased it and began to sell the “iron springs” mineral water commercially. It sold in 1887 to J.G. Hiestand, who built the original building now known as the Iron Springs Chateau Melodrama Dinner Theater.

Are we aloud to cheer and boo during the shows?

Not only are you aloud, you’re encouraged! Iron Springs Chateau brings the classic melodrama to life with plenty of audience interaction.
