From shamrocks to Shakespeare, this week the fine arts have a

lot to offer. Whether you hightail it to Boulder, Greeley or Denver

or just kick it in the Fort, opportunities to fill up Spring Break

free time are boundless when it comes to popular plays and

festivities.

One of Shakespeare’s classic plays is showing in Greeley for two

more days. It provides audience members with many laughs as the

affections of four young lovers become so humorously twisted that

everyone is pursuing someone who is not in love with him or her.

For only two more days the University of Northern Colorado will be

hosting “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” at UNC’s Norton Theatre. Call

the box office for ticket information.

Bring in St. Patty’s day a little early with the St. Patrick’s

Day parade at Lucky Joe’s this Saturday starting at 10 a.m.

Celebrate the popular Irish holiday by wearing green, drinking

green and feeling lucky. It guarantees a rip-roaring start to the

weeklong hiatus from class and stress.

After drinking has taken its toll, recover Sunday by enjoying a

popular

Broadway musical. On Sunday the Carousel Dinner Theatre is the

exclusive home of the Rocky Mountain Regional Premiere of

Broadway’s most popular and longest-running musical, “Cats.” The

first performance is a matinee with a noon lunch and 1:45 p.m.

show. Evening shows are hosted from Thursday to Saturday with

dinner at 6 p.m. and show time at 7:45 p.m. Tickets start at

$31.

And, green is just one of the many colors of the vibrant coat on

stage in Boulder. “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat”

engages a wealth of musical styles, from country-western to

bubble-gum pop to rock ‘n roll. Watch it at Boulder’s Dinner

Theatre. The play is on stage until June 20. Ticket prices range

from $23 to $52 and include dinner and the show. Tuesday through

Sunday evenings, dinner begins at 6:15 p.m. with a show start time

of 7:45 p.m. A Sunday matinee dinner is also available at12:15

p.m.

If the rainbow ends in Denver, then the pot of gold is located

at the Temple Buell Theatre. “Thoroughly Modern Millie” is a

singing, dancing and romancing musical comedy that takes audiences

back to New York City in 1922-the height of the Jazz Age. “Moderns”

of that time period were bobbing their hair, raising their

hemlines, entering the workforce and rewriting the rules of love.

Ticket prices range from $20 to $60 for a play that was the winner

of six Tony Awards, including best musical in 2002. Thursday,

Friday and Saturday evening performances are at 8 p.m. The Sunday

evening performance closes this series with a 7:30 p.m. start

time.
