Boozy Take on the Bard’s Greatest Romance
Fans of Drunk History and all its slurred education will fall over laughing at Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare, where an entirely serious Shakespeare play is performed with one entirely inebriated cast member. For the last eight years, Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare has been performed in the darkest corners and diviest bars in the U.K., and the cast is now bringing the good time to Austin. Side-splitting, raucous and completely interactive, this show enjoyed sell-out runs at the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe festivals, where a cast member drinks beer, wine and whiskey on stage, drunkenly sings the Dawson’s Creektheme song and occasionally (accidentally, of course) bares a nipple or two. Brush up on your Bard knowledge and head over to Spider House for a drunken twist on Romeo and Juliet, because this is Shakespeare as you never knew you wanted to see him before.
Jul 26 | 7:30 pm | Center Stage
The Wedding Singer takes us back to a time when hair was big, greed was good, collars were up and a wedding singer might just be the coolest guy in the room. Based on the hit Adam Sandler movie, The Wedding Singer’s sparkling new score does for the ’80s what Hairspray did for the ’60s. Just say yes to the most romantic musical in 20 years when The Wedding Singercomes to Center Stage in Evergreen.
Jul 26 | 6:00 pm | Embassy Suites – Denver Convention Center
America’s largest interactive comedy murder mystery dinner theatre show is now playing in Denver, Colorado! Solve a hilarious crime while you feast on a fantastic dinner. Just beware! The culprit is hiding in plain sight somewhere in the room, and you may find yourself as a Prime Suspect before you know it! Join us at the Embassy Suites Denver Downtown for an event that is very different from a traditional murder mystery dinner show. Our actors are not dressed in costume and are hidden in the audience! This results in a fun, social and interactive evening suitable for all adults. We perform at the Embassy Suites Denver Downtown, a newly renovated full-service hotel in beautiful Denver, Colorado. We are in the heart of downtown Denver, across the street from the Denver Convention Center and the Big Blue Bear.
Jul 26 | 7:30 pm | John Hand Theater
Lost and Found Productions is proud to present William Shakespeare’s Richard III at the John Hand Theater in Denver. The final play in Shakespeare’s War of the Roses historic epic series, Richard III charts the incredibly unlikely and equally malevolent rise of Richard, Duke of Gloucester to the English throne, and his ultimate and inevitable self-destruction and demise at the hands of Richmond, the first Tudor King of England. Set in a fictional, civil war-torn 1930s England and featuring an all-female/non-binary cast, Lost and Found Productions will reconquer Richard’s story to challenge and explore the full gamut of the human experience in a new way. This production will discover how a ruling family, a country, and a people can fall to the machinations of the worst kind of tyrannical rule.
Jul 26 | 7:30 pm | Shadow Theatre Company
A powerful exploration of African-American history and identity, Crowns follows six black women whose stories of love, loss and sisterhood are woven into the hats that crown their heads and the dynamic gospel songs that speak their truths. The story centers around Chicago-born Yolanda, who’s sent down south after the death of her brother in Brooklyn. There, she finds strength in the tales of the wise women who surround her — and in the rituals connected to their dazzling headwear.
Jul 26 | 7:30 pm | Shadow Theatre Company
It inspired the 1995 movie Clueless, the 1996 Gwyneth Paltrow film Emma and countless other TV and stage adaptations — it’s even been made into a Japanese manga.

Jul 28 | 2:00 pm | Savory at Curtis ParkWE MADE IT!! Our Groovin’ Foot is 2 years Strong!! Happy Anniversary Everyone!  Please come and join us for this very special edition of the Groovin’ Foot Workshop as we celebrate the Second Year Anniversary of the workshop. There will be cake and light refreshments for everyone. Can’t wait to see you all there.  ******** GROOVIN’ FOOT WORKSHOP – The Last Sunday of Every Month The Groovin’ Foot Workshop is a Fun, High-Energy Salsa Footwork Workshop. Although footwork is usually done individually, it is a very important piece to strengthen a dancer’s timing, rhythm, balance, and coordination – all of which are important skills to have when dancing partnerwork.  In this workshop, I spend time introducing the individual moves along with their names and breaking them down. And then we modify and combine the moves in creative ways to create a short pattern that is practiced in the workshop. And then finally and most importantly, I give tips on how to be able to create your own footwork sequence, with your own flavor, and your own style!!!
