Come From Away (Broadway Tour) / Denver Center for the Performing Arts
Nov 13 all-day

The true story of the small town that welcomed the world. The New York Times Critics’ Pick, the Broadway musical Come From Away, takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships. “It takes you to a place you never want to leave.” On 9/11, the world stopped. On 9/12, their stories moved us all.

Reckless / Funky Little Theater Co. in Colorado Springs
Nov 16 all-day

At home on Christmas Eve, Rachel is informed by her guilty husband that he has hired a hitman to kill her, and she must flee for her life—which she does by scrambling out the kitchen window and into the snowy night. She meets and joins up with Lloyd Bophtelophti, a true “original” who has changed his name to avoid alimony payments and who now lives with a paraplegic named Pootie (who also pretends to be deaf in order to get double disability). Rachel then wins $100,000 on a TV game show and begins a series of picaresque escapades involving numerous psychiatrists and, eventually, an ill-fated reunion with her husband. In the end, Rachel becomes a therapist herself, treating her own child (who fails to recognize her) and is led more and more to ponder whether the modern world might not be a vast conspiracy designed to systematically undermine her own increasingly shaky sanity.

One of the most beloved holiday movies in recent years is live on stage! ELF – The Musical is the uproarious tale of Buddy, who as a child, mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole where he is raised among elves. Unaware that he is actually human, Buddy’s enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to question where he came from. With Santa’s blessing, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. By spreading his unfailing holiday cheer, Buddy helps people discover the true meaning of Christmas, and finds the human family he never knew he had. This modern day Christmas classic is sure to make audiences of all ages embrace their inner Elf!

The Christmas Spirit / Firehouse Theater Company
Nov 24 all-day

Just after midnight on Christmas Eve, Julia Dowling has an unexpected visitor who intends to escort her off to the afterlife. Infusing comedy into the classic “Death Takes a Holiday,” The Christmas Spirit is set in contemporary Long Island. Julia persuades Death to give her one more day to enjoy Christmas and invites him to be her guest at a festive party. The next day the house fills with bickering relatives, friends, the local priest…and Death, masquerading as a human, singing carols and drinking eggnog. Moments of high farce, drama, and even romance arise as bright holiday fantasies collide with a not-so-merry reality.

Nov 30 all-day

The Revolutionists — Four beautiful, badass women lose their heads in this irreverent, girl-powered comedy set during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. Playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen (and fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle hang out, murder Marat, and try to beat back the extremist insanity in 1793 Paris. This grand and dream-tweaked comedy is about violence and legacy, art and activism, feminism and terrorism, compatriots and chosen sisters, and how we actually go about changing the world. It’s a true story. Or total fiction. Or a play about a play. Or a raucous resurrection…that ends in a song and a scaffold.

What You Will / Benchmark Theatre
Nov 30 all-day

What You Will is the story of Adam, a forty-something gay man living a quiet but seemingly contented life. He’s married to a man he truly loves and runs a stationery shop, where he expertly designs custom wedding invitations. However, when he simultaneously meets two different individuals — a rather seductive married man in a gym steam room and a joyful, yet frenetic bride in desperate need of assistance — he begins to realize that marriage may have clear boundaries, but it certainly does not have very clear rules. What You Will brings together the disparate worlds of wedding invitations, anonymous sex, and Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night” to explore the unspoken contracts we make in personal relationships and what happens when the terms of those tacit agreements come into question.

Mosque / Fearless Theatre
Dec 6 all-day

Mosque by Jihad Milhem is the story of a Palestinian immigrant father and his first generation American son. Set in NYC in the summer of 2010 amidst the Ground Zero Mosque controversy, an overheard conversation sets in motion a series of actions that will change this father and son forever. Mosque explores what it means to be American in a post 9/11 world, what it means to be a part of a family, and how one decides to define oneself.

Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical / The Fine Arts Center Theatre Company at Colorado College
Dec 6 all-day

Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence, and psychokinetic powers. She’s unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Matilda’s school life isn’t completely smooth sailing, however – the school’s mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don’t abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils’ saving grace!
