The Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre entertains audiences with high-caliber theatrics that earned it a mention as Colorado's premiere summer musical company by the Denver Post’s John Moore. The theater’s summer season opens with contemporary classic Beauty and the Beast, whose lovable characters and memorable music enchant adults, children, and puppets who have been turned into children. Infectious Frank Loesser classics such as "Luck Be a Lady" and "Bushel and a Peck" lovingly tap eardrums in a high-energy rendition of Guys and Dolls, and “Annie’s Song,” “Rocky Mountain High,” and other tuneful favorites serenade audiences in Almost Heaven: Songs of John Denver. Featuring a soundtrack arranged by the musical masterminds behind Mamma Mia, Chess recounts the intrigue and romance of a Cold War–era chess match without getting bogged down in technical details such as how many pawns it takes to beat a royal flush.
