Lend Me a Tenor - Miner's Alley Playhouse, 1224 Washington Ave Golden, CO, 80401

Lend Me A Tenor is set in September 1934. Saunders, the general manager of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, is primed to welcome world famous, Tito Morelli, Il Stupendo, the greatest tenor of his generation, to appear for one night only as Otello. The star arrives late and, through a hilarious series of mishaps, is given a double dose of tranquilizers and passes out. His pulse is so low that Saunders and his assistant Max believe he’s dead. In a frantic attempt to salvage the evening, Saunders persuades Max to get into Morelli's Otello costume and fool the audience into thinking he's Il Stupendo. Max succeeds admirably, but Morelli comes to and gets into his other costume ready to perform. Now two Otellos are running around in costume and two women are running around in lingerie, each thinking she is with Il Stupendo.

The Full Monty - PACE Center, 20000 Pikes Peak Ave., Parker CO

In this musical comedy based off the film of the same name, six down-on-their-luck steel workers create their own strip-tease act after seeing their wives enthusiasm for a group of Chippendale’s, and end up reclaiming their lives in the process. This show is for mature audiences only.

Despite losing their jobs, despite struggling to maintain relationships with their wives and children, the boys have a shining bit of optimism that manages to shine through their dreary circumstances. In songs like the hilariously dark “Big Ass Rock,” or the moving “Breeze off the River,” the journey to going “the full monty” is full of absurdist gallows humor and a whole lot of heart.

The Little Mermaid - Boulder Dinner Theatre, 5501 Arapahoe Ave, Boulder CO 80303

Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved stories and the classic animated film, Disney’s The Little Mermaid is a hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages. With music by eight-time Academy Award winner, Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater and a compelling book by Doug Wright, this fishy fable will capture your heart with its irresistible songs, including “Under the Sea,” “Kiss the Girl” and “Part of Your World.”

Ariel, King Triton’s youngest daughter, wishes to pursue the human Prince Eric in the world above, bargaining with the evil sea witch, Ursula, to trade her tail for legs.

The Producers - Jester's Dinner Theater, 224 Main St. Longmont, CO 80501

The plot is simple: a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant come up with a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history, thereby bilking their backers (all “little old ladies”) out of millions of dollars. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! The antics of Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom as they maneuver their way fecklessly through finding a show (the gloriously offensive “Springtime for Hitler”), hiring a director, raising the money and finally going to prison for their misdeeds is a lesson in broad comic construction. At the core of the insanely funny adventure is a poignant emotional journey of two very different men who become friends. Showtimes & Pricing

Into the woods--you have to grope, But that's the way you learn to cope. Into the woods to find there's hope Of getting through the journey.” We think we know how the fairy tales go: Little Red Riding Hood. Cinderella. Rapunzel. Jack and the Beanstalk. Think again. As a childless baker and his wife try to start a family, they discover a host of fairy tale characters seeking the fulfillment of their own wishes and dreams. Princes and princesses trying to find love; a witch trying to reclaim youth and beauty; and families trying to put food on the table. As they venture deeper into the woods, they discover the realities of life, as well as its consequences. Winner of 5 Tony Awards including Best Original Score (1988) and Best Revival of A Musical (2002), this Sondheim classic reminds us that life is an unpredictable journey - “to mind, to heed, to find, to think, to teach, to join” - and that no one is alone.
