Harps aren’t just for angels to play. Many great composers have appreciated the harp and written ensemble pieces for it, often combined with other string instruments—though ones with fewer strings than harps. This program, hosted by Betsy Schwarm and featuring harpist Courtney Hershey Bress, violinist Yumi Hwang Williams, violist Phillip Stevens, and some of their Colorado Symphony colleagues, offers music for harp and strings by composers Gabriel Fauré, Marcel Tournier, Camille Saint-Saëns, and Ricardo Lorenz. You’ll also gain insight into exactly how a harp works—as well as how one tunes all those strings. Arts in the Afternoon is a series of weekday afternoon concerts and performances designed to transport you out of the ordinary. Enjoy a variety of styles by professional performers in this intimate series. Refreshments are provided as a part of your ticket, so please stay after the performance to talk with performers, reflect on what you saw, and enjoy social time. $18 will be charged to your account. If you cancel and we cannot find a replacement, you will be responsible for $18. If you cancel within 24 hours of the event, you will also be responsible for a $5 cancellation fee; $10 if it is a 2-van event. Please sign up in the Birch dining room to be a part of this event.

“Mark Twain, Tonight”
More than 50 years ago, a young actor took the stage in a tiny off-Broadway theatre and introduced the world to a man they’d never forget. That actor was Hal Holbrook. The man was Mark Twain. As Denver audiences know well, no one embodies Twain like Hal Holbrook. It is, quite simply, one of the most acclaimed and enduring performances in the history of theatre. This evening is a living, breathing, American masterpiece. Holbrook knows Twain as well as he knows himself, bringing richness to the character far beyond the quoting of Twain’s most memorable lines. $33 will be charged to your account for tickets. If you cancel and we cannot find a replacement, you will be responsible for $33.

“Thoroughly Modern Millie” at Boulder Dinner Theatre
The winner of 6 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Thoroughly Modern Millie was the 2002 season’s most awarded new show on Broadway! Based on the 1967 Academy Award-winning film, Thoroughly Modern Millie takes you back to 1922, the height of the Jazz Age in New York City, when “moderns” including a flapper named Millie Dillmount were bobbing their hair, raising their hemlines, entering the workforce, and rewriting the rules of love. This high-spirited musical romp is a delightful valentine to the long-standing spirit of The Big Apple and the people who seek to discover themselves there. Thoroughly Modern Millie tells the story of young Millie from Kansas who comes to The Big Apple in search of a new life for herself. Her grand plan is to find a job as a secretary for a wealthy man and then marry him. However, her plan goes completely awry. The owner of her dingy hotel kidnaps young girls to sell to the Far East; her wealthy boss is slow in proposing marriage; and the man she actually falls in love with doesn’t have a dime to his name – or so he tells her. $43 will be charged for your dinner and show.  If you cancel and we cannot find a replacement, you will be responsible for $43.  If you cancel within 24 hours of the event, you will also be responsible for a $5 cancellation fee; $10 if it is a 2 van event.
