A Christmas Carol
Stage Theater
Opening Night: November 25

The classic Christmas tale of Scrooge and his past, present, and future. The classic tale thrills, chills and lightens the heart. Running until Christmas Eve, shows range anywhere from $75-$93 depending on the day and time.

Colorado Ballet: The Nutcracker
Ellie Caulkins Opera House
Opening Night: November 26

This year marks 56 years of the Nutcracker at the Colorado Ballet. Joined by the Colorado Ballet Orchestra, we’re excited to see what changes and new twists they have in store. 

The Hip Hop Nutcracker

Buell Theater
Opening Night: November 20

When hip-hop meets ballet, you get a marvelous performance that combines the elegant score of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker and Hip Hop beats. The story has been moved to New Year’s Eve, the mouse army has been replaced with a mouse-eared gang, a humble nut seller is the one who saves the day, the Land of Sweets has been transformed into a nightclub trapped in 1985, and Pirouettes have been changed to floor windmills. This show is truly a modernized classic. Check out these clips from last year’s performance. 


Home Free: A Country Christmas

Paramount Theater
Opening Night: December 6

Denver Holiday Show

Celebrate the season with an A Capella twist! Country group Home Free is bringing their harmony-rich southern sound on a sleighride. Busting out all the Christmas classics, the plaid-clad quintet will leave you in awe with their talents. You gotta check out this Denver holiday show with a country twist!

Brian Setzer Orchestra: Christmas Rocks

Paramount Theater
Opening Night: December 13

Now in its thirteenth year of touring, ex-Stray Cats frontman Brian Setzer sets the tone for shows with his wildly innovative guitar-playing and off-beat humor. The Brian Setzer Orchestra is an 18-piece swing and jump blues band made up of Setzer himself as well as an entire orchestra of talented musical artists.


Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Buell Theater
Opening Night: December 16

Denver Holiday Show

Based on the 1964 extremely loved animated special, this rendition brings the classic claymation characters to life! Rudolph was first turned into a live action musical by Jeff Frank and Chicago’s First Stage in 2013. It seems the show is becoming as much of a tradition as the classic animation.


There is plenty of holiday fun to go around this season! Check out all the holiday events Colorado has going on!
