Camp Christmas - The Hangar at Stanley Marketplace, 2501 Dallas St, Aurora CO, 80010

An over-the-top holiday extravaganza as big as the season it celebrates Not for the faint of festivity, this over-the-top indoor immersive installation turns the holiday spirit all the way up with mesmerizing displays of decorations that shift time and reality. Camp Christmas is Denver’s newest holiday experience, where yuletide traditions of the past and present get merrily mashed together in a massive 10,000-square-foot wonderland. It’s not just pretty lights and mistletoe. This is where Marie Antoinette commands a Rococo sleigh, where ancient Roman festivals become Santa-fied, and where pink is more than just a color – it’s a place. Come in from the cold with your whole family and get wrapped in the ooey-gooey, odd and sweet rituals that have brought light to the darkness of winter for thousands of years.

Vintage Theatre presents the Regional Premiere of “Looped” by Matthew Lombardo Directed by Craig A. Bond. Based on real events, “Looped” takes place in the summer of 1965, when Tallulah Bankhead needed to redub - or loop - one line of dialogue for what would be her final movie. What starts out as a friendly visit to the studio quickly dissolves into a hilarious battle of wits and wills between the divine diva and the film’s editor.

A Doll's House, Part 2 - Ricketson Theatre - DPAC, 994 14th St, Denver CO 80202

For the first time ever performed in repertory, follow two acclaimed playwrights’ distinctive takes on one woman’s journey to self-discovery. Henrik Ibsen’s renowned classic shattered the traditions of his time as his protagonist, Nora, walked out on her stark marital obligations. Decades later, Lucas Hnath brought her home (and to Broadway) to revisit her actions through a contemporary lens. One part searing drama, another part biting comedy, this is an experience best seen in full.

Shakespeare's Twelfth Night - Space Theatre - DPAC, 994 14th St, Denver CO 80202

Love makes fools of us all Hilarious hijinks. Unrequited love. Gender-bending disguises. The struggle is real in this Shakespearean comedy, where the clumsiness of romance is on display in every way. Separated from her twin brother after a shipwreck in Illyria, Viola disguises herself as a man to work in the local household of Duke Orsino. The closer they become, the more Viola gets acquainted with Orsino’s crush, the beautiful noblewoman Olivia. Much to their dismay (and to your delight), the trio is inevitably thrust into a love triangle of mistaken identity and wanton foolishness. Overflowing with quick wit and titillating trysts, this standout play by The Bard is sure to please with its captivating characters and one of his most dynamic heroines.

Ah, Thanksgiving, that most American of Holidays: when families gather to bask in the bounty of the harvest, football, giant balloons—and the legacy of genocide and violent colonial expansion. Good intentions collide with absurd assumptions in this wickedly funny satire as a troupe of terminally “woke” teaching artists trip all over themselves to create a politically correct, yet historically accurate , yet dramatically revolutionary, yet accurately represented sand responsibly cast Thanksgiving play for elementary schools…all while navigating aspirations to be successful actors- but not commercially successful- and overall unproblematic white people.
