The Last Romance is a delightful romantic comedy about love in the golden years. Ralph, an elderly widower, feels young again – all thanks to an unexpected second chance at love. Relying on a renewed boyish charm, Ralph attempts to woo the elegant but distant Carol. Up against Carol’s reluctance and his domineering sister’s meddling, Ralph embarks on the challenge of a lifetime, and regains a happiness that seemed lost. 
The Last Romance is directed by Christy Montour-Larson and features Christy Brandt (Carol), John S. Green (Ralph), Anne F. Butler (Rose) and Sean Thompson (Young Man). 
Creede Repertory Theatre is an award-winning theater company located in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado. The Company presented The Last Romance as part of its recently completed 2014 summer season. The production marks the fifth collaboration between the Arvada Center and CRT.
