A one-woman musical tour-de-force about the artist who played Mammy in Gone With The Wind, Hi-Hat Hattie! takes place backstage of an old theater where Ms. Hattie McDaniel recalls the incredible events of her storied show business life.

Honeymoon in Vegas  
Vintage Theatre Honeymoon in Vegas
The New York Times raves Honeymoon in Vegas is "a real-live, old fashioned, deeply satisfying Broadway musical in a way few new shows are anymore." Based on the 1992 Nicholas Cage comedy hit, this is the hilarious story of commitment-phobe Jack, his not-so-patient girlfriend Betsy and a professional gambler named Tommy. Featuring a book by Andrew Bergman (who wrote and directed the original film) and music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown, this is a musical comedy in the Golden Age theatrical tradition, with gags, gams and great tunes. The original Broadway team of director Gary Griffin and choreographer Denis Jones brings Honeymoon in Vegas to the Vintage Theatre in Aurora.

The Nutcracker  
The Ellie The Nutcracker

Set in the 1950s, and based on real events, Red takes a compelling look at world-famous abstract artist Mark Rothko at the pinnacle of his creative powers. As he struggles with creating a series of large paintings for a commission, Rothko gets a brand-new assistant and the thin line between teacher and student begins to blur. See this this taut, visceral play by John Logan at Denver's Vintage Theatre.
The Edge Theater Company at The Edge Theater Resolutions
For the past eight years, three middle-aged couples have gathered, post-Christmas, at Randall and Dellen's plush, cozy Vail cabin. Each year their social event includes exchanging white elephant gifts, making their resolutions for the upcoming year and, of course, a few cocktails. But this year, something has changed. Relationships have evolved, some more than others, and an unexpected guest is an all too familiar face.
Santa's Big Red Sack  
Avenue Theater Santa's Big Red Sack
Christmas carols, Santa's reindeer, the Whos in Whoville, gift exchanges and good will -- everything warm and fuzzy about the holidays gets a red-hot skewering in the seasonal sketch show Santa's Big Red Sack. A non-traditional look at Christmas cheer that's ironically become an annual tradition for Denver's Avenue Theater, Santa's Big Red Sack is clever, witty, silly, relentless -- and definitely not for the easily offended. The scenes are as predictably unpredictable as always, and this year the gang mixes new over-the-top material with hit sketches from years past.
Scrooge: Bah Humbug!  
Jesters Dinner Theatre Scrooge: Bah Humbug!
One of Longmont's most enduring holiday traditions takes Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol and adds a heaping helping of music, dancing and comedy, plus a full meal, while still serving up the heartfelt Yuletide themes of charity and goodwill. Scrooge: Bah Humbug! has been an annual staple of the Jesters Dinner Theatre repertoire since 1987 -- and it even stars the same actor in the title role. A family-friendly event with a bedtime-friendly length, this popular production offers a variety of entrees if your ticket includes a meal, with fresh bread and your choice of salad or soup. A kids' menu is available too, and so is a show-only ticket.
