Stage

Hazel Kirke

When: July 1-Sept. 3 2011

Before Sasha Fierce, ladies in distress were all the rage. This idea of Victorian womanhood sets the tone for summer shows at Cripple Creek's Butte Theater (139 E. Bennett Ave., butteoperahouse.com). Take Hazel Kirke, the heroine of the eponymous melodrama about her plight of disownment and exile after she married the man her family despised. Calamity Jane, also of a same-named play, trades in her guns for aprons and tries to become housewifely to win the affections of Wild Bill Hickok. You can catch both plays weekends through early September, but if you're up for it, both are playing today: Hazel at 1 p.m., Jane at 7. Tickets run $9.75 to $15.75. — Edie Adelstein

Price: $9.75-$15.75
