Murray Ross has been artistic director of Theatreworks almost since the company was founded in 1975. In his 30 years at the helm, he has adapted and written more than 100 works for the stage. His pen has carved out originals such as I am Nikola Tesla as well as adaptions of Huckleberry Finn and Plato's Symposium. These have all seen life at the Dusty Loo Bon Vivant Theater, an intimate venue that allows for dynamic, ever-changing stage configurations.
An intimate, family-operated musical haven, The Loft Music Venue shares its passion for the performing arts by showcasing singer-songwriters and a variety of different genres, including acoustic pop, jazz, indie, blues and more.

For 25 years, World of Dance has taught ballroom dances including the cha-cha, waltz, salsa, and foxtrot to students whose skill levels range from recreational to competitive. The studio’s approach is simple yet effective. Students typically start with one-on-one or group lessons so they can learn techniques and basic body positions. They then apply what they’ve practiced during the studio’s regular dance parties, performing the waltz to demonstrate their graceful new moves or the tango to fulfill their latent desires to chew on roses.
At Rocky Mountain Dance Academy, students learn to bust their best moves under the instruction of devoted instructors. The schedule offers a wide variety of classes that cater to diverse boogie ambitions. Children 7–18 years old can cultivate coordination and leverage power over their lanky limbs in jazz, ballet, hip hop, pom pom, and lyrical classes; 2–8 year olds can enjoy the combination jazz-ballet classes. Energetic adult hip hop and Zumba aerobics classes help adults (and anyone over 7 years old) reach their fitness goals without having to get up in the middle of the night to bench-press the TV. Your six-week class will meet for one hour each week and can begin at any time.
Tony Bennett, the preeminent singer’s singer, gifts audiences with the smoothness of his showmanship and golden voice, crooning the tunes that epitomized American music in a very special evening at the historic Ellie Caulkins Opera House. Effortlessly charming the pantaloons off the greatest generation, melting the scowls of the MTV generation, and filling the coldly logical robot generation with joy, Tony will smile-sing through his canon of dependable torch songs and big-band swingers. Tony’s musical magic has endured for more than half a century due to his graceful voice and boyish manner. Floating with Tony on this enchanting night, daughter Antonia Bennett joins her papa for swooping duets, proving that the apple doesn’t fall far from the larynx.
