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

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
