There were various warning signs in the park - warnings against Rattlesnakes, and climbing on the rocks were the most prominent.
They didn't climb on the rocks, but they did see a snake. The park website says that these are the rules
• Motorized vehicles and bicycles are allowed only on designated roads, parking areas and trails.
• Fires and camping are prohibited.
• No glass bottles or containers are allowed
• No littering- Please use trash receptacles
• No hunting
• No fireworks or firearms permitted
• Pets must be on a leash at all times
• Consumption of beer, liquor or wine is prohibited
• Rock climbing is prohibited (photo 2, 4 and 5)
Additionally this is what it says about the rattlesnake (photo 3)
Rattlesnakes - More than 20 nonpoisonous species of snakes exist in Colorado, whereas only two species are poisonous, the Western Rattlesnake and the Massassauga. Both species of poisonous snakes have rattles on the ends of their tails, whereas native nonpoisonous snakes do not. Rattlesnakes are most often found near rocky areas on the eastern plains and in the foothills to 8,000 feet. As a reminder, the trails along Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater meet all three criteria.
If you encounter a snake
If you encounter a rattlesnake, back away slowly and take an alternate route. Rattlesnakes are not aggressive, but will defend themselves if surprised or cornered. The best protection against a rattlesnake is choosing protective foot and leg wear. Care should also be taken at night, when snakes are more active and the chance of stepping on a snake is greater.
The best first aid for a poisonous snake bite is to seek immediate medial care and to keep the victim calm, warm, and reassured. Do not drink alcohol or use ice or cold packs to treat the snake bite. Do not cut the wound. If the victim is several hours from a car and medical care, apply a light constricting cloth or other band on the bitten limb, 2-4 inches from the bite and between the bite and heart. Make sure it is not as tight as a tourniquet. It should be easy to insert a finger under the band. Loosen it if swelling occurs.

I'll mention this as it's big in the brochures and we saw a lot of signs pointing to parking lots. We didn't attend a performance, nor stop by to see if we could just look the place over. I hear great things, but I think it's better if you like the performers that come to this stage.
