The Colorado Shakespeare Festival present their touring program for a one night performance of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Macbeth wants to be king, but what will it take to get there? Pressured by three witches, he and his wife suppress their “human kindness” in favor of a violent path – with devastating consequences. This abridged play is open to the public and is family friendly. Running about 45 minutes long, the play will be followed by a Q&A session with the actors.

A Christmas Carol & A Cowboy’s Christmas Carol
December 20 – 22. Doors 6:30, Curtain 7:00 pm.
Turn Back the Dial Readers Theatre presents two Old Time Radio Theatre performances to get you in the spirit this December.
A Christmas Carol: A mean-spirited, miserly old man named Ebenezer Scrooge learns the real meaning of family thanks to Christmas visits by three ghosts. Soon Scrooge grows close to his nephew’s sickly little son, Tiny Tim, only to find out that Tim may die soon. Scrooge then shows a glimmer of unaccustomed compassion that soon engulfs him and his family. A classic Christmas story first told in 1843.

A Cowboy’s Christmas Carol: While young Johnny is running away from home on a cold Christmas Eve, he comes across lawman Britt Ponset (played on the 1950’s radio series by none other than Hollywood star Jimmy Stewart) who tells him the story of “Eben”, a tightfisted old rancher who was visited by ghosts on Christmas Eve. A heart-warming Old West tale that revolves around Dicken’s immortal classic. Adapted & directed for the Arts Center stage by Mike Callihan

Tickets: $15/adults, $12/members, seniors & kids (12-).
