Human Error - Garner Galleria Theatre - DPAC, 994 14th St, Denver CO 80202

Madelyn and Keenan are NPR-listening, latte-sipping, blue-state liberals, while Heather and Jim are NRA-cardholding, truck-driving, red-state conservatives.

Now the two couples face sharing an uproarious nine-month odyssey of culture shock, clashing values, changing attitudes and unlikely – but heartfelt – friendships.

School of Rock - Temple Buell Theatre - DPAC, 994 14th St, Denver CO 80202

School of Rock is a The New York Times Critics’ Pick and “An inspiring jolt of energy, joy and mad skillz!” (Entertainment Weekly). Based on the hit film, this hilarious new musical follows Dewey Finn, a wannabe rock star posing as a substitute teacher who turns a class of straight-A students into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band. This high-octane smash features 14 new songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber, all the original songs from the movie and musical theater’s first-ever kids rock band playing their instruments live on stage. Vanity Fair raves, “Fists of all ages shall be pumping!”

Ain’t Misbehavin’ - Littleton Town Hall Arts Center, 2450 W Main St, Littleton CO 80120

The inimitable Thomas “Fats” Waller rose to international fame during the Golden Age of the Cotton Club and that jumpin’ new beat, swing music. Not quite a biography, the musical evokes the delightful humor and infectious energy of this American original. Ain’t Misbehavin’ is one of the most popular, well-crafted revues of all time winning the 1978 Tony Award for Best Musical. The intoxicating music of Fats Waller will delight and energize audiences providing great insight to a vibrant time in American history and music.

District Merchants - Miner's Alley Playhouse, 1224 Washington Ave Golden, CO, 80401

With audacious humor and bold inventiveness, Aaron Posner (SCR’s The Tempest) takes The Merchant of Venice from its Shakespearean setting to post-Civil War Washington, D.C., with hints at life in America today. In the complex and contradictory worlds of blacks, whites, Jews and Christians, money changes hands with dangerously high stakes, philanthropic acts mask blatant opportunism and would-be lovers hide—and then uncover—their differences. While love gets a chance, does hope remain for a just and kind tomorrow?

Man of La Mancha - Colorado Candlelight Theater, 4747 Marketplace Dr, Johnstown CO 80534

One of the most heralded musicals of all time. Man of La Mancha is a glorious affirmation of the unyielding resilience of the human spirit that will leave you breathless. Man of La Mancha enters the mind and world of the “mad knight” Don Quixote as he pursues his quest for the impossible dream. In a tale told by Cervantes himself in defense of his life’s work, Quixote is, against all odds, a man who sees good and innocence in a world filled with darkness and despair. Featuring stirring classic songs including “The Impossible Dream,” Man of La Mancha is a multi-Tony Award®-winning theatrical masterpiece that blurs the line between dreams and reality.
