Colorado Ballet's production of Peter Pan jolts J.M. Barrie's beloved tale to life with a dazzling celebration of childhood imagination. During each performance, members of the Colorado Children's Chorale unify their voices with the show's original orchestral score, accompanying Peter, Tinker Bell, and the rest of the cherished gang as they perform spellbinding aerial feats and complete their tax returns while dangling from wires. Elegant costumes and elaborate backdrops work with the story's imaginative choreography to further captivate theatergoers, who absorb the on-stage rebellion against gravity, as well as an air of grandeur inside the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, which was reopened in 2005 after extensive remodeling. At 2.5 hours in length, Peter Pan productions will also feature two 20-minute intermissions apiece, and can be enjoyed by any child capable of appreciating full-length films or prolonged jury deliberations.
When guests cross the threshold into MorbidNights Colorado's Nut House, they enter the tormented minds of history's most notorious serial killers. Inside the 20 rooms that occupy the 12,000 square-foot fear factory, brazen voyagers come face to face with some of the most homicidal humans ever to walk the earth, and shudder with fear as the criminals reenact their notorious crimes or a favorite dance number from South Pacific. Those brave enough to risk the madness do so for a great cause, however, as the haunt donates a portion of its yearly proceeds to worthy causes including the Weld Food Bank or UNC student radio.
We are a high-end dinner theater...one stop shopping for date night. A $6 million dollar facility built from the ground up to be a dinner theater, we present Broadway musicals and a great meal all in a very luxurious setting.
Dancer, choreographer, and certified Pilates instructor Alisa Schillinger fell in love with dance as a high-school student—a love that she now passes on to the students at Axis Of Movement. Teaching dance styles including hip hop, breakdance, tap, ballet, jazz, and lyrical, Schillinger and her staff help students to master leaps, turns, taps, and splits. When not pirouetting through the studio, Alisa also teaches Pilates, and an on-staff massage therapist helps keep bodies limber in ways that have nothing to do with spelling out YMCA with your arms.
You never know who might be in the audience at Midtown Arts Center—it could be Broadway devotees taking in a performance of Sweeney Todd, families watching The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley, or comedy fans chuckling to Monty Python's Spamalot. The center is able to support such a diverse program thanks to a pair of theaters, a 200-seat auditorium that hosts kids musical-theatre classes and the Young Audience Series, and a 236-seat dinner theater. In the latter, servers present gourmet meals from a menu that includes blueberry baked brie, braised pork shanks, and even creme brûlée. Before dinner, guests can hang out at the full bar and lobby, beautifully decorated spaces that perfectly complement a 200-seat ballroom that can be reserved for weddings or massive games of musical chairs.
For more than two decades, Jesters Dinner Theatre has entertained audiences and their rumbling stomachs with tasty meals served during live, on-stage performances. Carousel, created by famed musical manufacturers Rodgers & Hammerstein, takes place in turn-of-the-19th-century Maine, where a once-carefree carousel barker with a pregnant wife becomes unemployed. To make some quick cash and avoid the disapproval of musical-theatre fans, the barker assists in a robbery and, after being caught, takes his own life. When he is allowed to return to earth for one day 15 years later, he meets his daughter and tries to fill her and her mother with love from beyond the grave. For Friday and Saturday shows, dinner starts at 6 p.m., and the curtain rises at 7:45 p.m. Meals start at 12:30 p.m. on Sundays, with a 2:15 p.m. curtain time.
