The Lion King and Hamilton are coming to Denver!
Live theater was on a standstill for the majority of the year that shall not be named and part of this year as well. All together, they’ve had to, unfortunately cancel 34 shows, but things are looking a little brighter this summer, and we’re hoping this trajectory carries into the fall season. We’re so excited to see that Denver’s Center for Performing Arts has finally unveiled their upcoming 2021-22 schedule, and there’s quite a list of shows coming up.
The season will kick off with the premiere of their first-ever fictional podcast, The Bright Lights Of Denver. Part investigative drama, theater, and optional city-wide scavenger hunt following a Denver writer who gets more than he bargained for in the Mile High City. The story is interactive with QR codes that are scattered across the city, so audience members can head to the same places the characters visit in the story.
Through July to August, you can tune in for the return of Mixed Taste, where speakers discuss some of the most fascinating, off-beat facts of life you may never heard of. Plus, there’s poetry reading. Wild Fire is a theatrical retelling of true events, covering a week of an unprecedented wild fire.
The immersive Christmas story, Camp Christmas, will be returning in November right before Thanksgiving, and the broadway musical rendition of A Christmas Carol will be returning to the stage on November 19th. For fans of dance, you can also check out the Hip Hip Dance rendition of the classic Russian ballet, The Nutcracker.
Finally, after a temporary hiatus, The Lion King Musical will be making its triumphant return to Denver. This is likely to be a highlight of the winter season so get your tickets here to catch the shows, starting December 2nd until January 2nd 2022.
Another of the big hitters this season is the impactful musical that retells an important historical figure, Alexander Hamilton. Hamilton is rescheduled to premiere on February 16th, the show will run through March 27th, 2022. You’re going to want to book your tickets now.
There are plenty of other amazing shows to check out at the theater as the art form is brought back to Denver and we’re so stoked!
