There are more than enough plays, music, and dance events to

keep any one who isn’t already busy with school and the upcoming

holidays well entertained throughout the coming month.

“Lives of the Saints,” a raucous comedy about oddball everyday

occurrences, opens Friday at the Bas Bleu Theater. Under the

surface of belly-splitting laughs lay questions about life, love

and death. This is director John Hill’s sixth production at Bas

Bleu, and just as his previous endeavors brought laughter, “Lives

of the Saints” is sure to tickle your fancy.

CSU will be visited by award-winning composer David Baker on

Monday and Tuesday. Baker, who is director of the Smithsonian Jazz

Masterworks Orchestra, and president of the International

Association of Jazz Education, has written over 2,000 works. Two

performances at CSU will include jazz and classical music from the

internationally- renowned composer. Tickets are $5 for students and

$10 for non-students, at the CSU Music Building Monday, and the

Lory Student Center Theatre Tuesday, both starting at 7:30 p.m.

“The Wizard of Oz” will be opening at the Lincoln Center Nov.

20. A lively cast of 48 brings the original script of “The Wizard

of Oz,” hoping to take audience members over the rainbow with

extensive costumes, a customized stage set and a live orchestra.

The production has a few surprises in store, as director Peter

Muller has included scenes that were deleted from the original

film. Tickets are $8, on sale at the Lincoln Center. “The Wizard of

Oz” has a short running time of Nov. 20 to 23, so don’t miss the

chance to see the flying monkeys.

Michael Flatley’s “Lord of the Dance” is also coming to Colorado

Nov. 19 and 20. The internationally renowned dance routine is

stopping in Greeley for two nights during its North American tour.

“Lord of the Dance,” the mind-boggling foot tapping of dozens of

dancers, led by the 35-taps-per-second world record holder Michael

Flatley, has astounded more than 50 million people worldwide. Now

people in Colorado get the chance to see what the rat-a-tat-tapping

is all about. Tickets are on sale now. Call The Center box office

at (970) 356-5000 for information and tickets.

Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” is running at the Lincoln Center through

Nov. 22. This ancient tale of a man slipping into ruin is produced

by OpenStage Theatre, and directed by Peter Anthony, who has called

together a tight cast of performers for this event. Ticket prices

are $14 for students and seniors and $18 for adults. Call the

Lincoln Center Box Office at 970-221-6730 for tickets and show
