“Beautiful theater, great live performance”
Review of Shuler Theater

Shuler Theater
Ranked #4 of 10 things to do in Raton
Attraction details
Reviewed 31 July 2014

An improvised stop in Raton New Mexico on the way to Colorado ended up an unexpected pleasure. Walking down the historic main street I came across two beautiful buildings for entertainment, a classic main street movie theater and the Schuler Theater. As it was a Thursday night, there was no problem in getting a seat for that night's performance of Turn of the Screw. The adaptation of the Henry James novel was clearly inspired by the theatrical version of The Woman in Black, and the professional actors brought the chilling tale to life in this one-act play. So, for 15 dollars, I got to admire a gem of a building and see a play done well. For that money, you can just about afford an ice cream at intermission on Broadway ...

What a treat to see "Grace & Glorie" at a beautifully kept secret. The Shuler Theater is a little piece of the past with a wonderful history. Every summer, professional acting troupes come through and bring the theater back to life. If you are in Northeastern New Mexico, near Raton, in the summer, look up the play schedule for the Shuler. You will enjoy the show. It is worth the trip.

What could be better than live professional summer repertory in an historic and beautiful theatre. Although I live in Taos, I made the pleasant drive to Raton to watch a wonderfully hilarious adaptation of the irreverent Oscar Wilde's "The Importance of Being Earnest". Two weeks later I returned and was gripped by the two person performance of Henry James's brooding and mysterious "Turn of the Screw."
Hats off to everyone!

We are never disappointed in attending live theater at the Shuler in Raton, New Mexico - We highly recommend an evening or matinee -

We went to see a local production of Steel Magnolias at the Shuler and were fortunate enough to be able to have a personal tour of the theater the next day- what a treat! The manager knew all of the history of the theater and its architecture- truly a piece of local history and worth going in and seeing if you are in Raton!
