Morbid Curiosities, a chilling show for a hot week.
Although the start of summer is still officially weeks away, summer activities are now in full swing, with outdoor art shows, festivals, concerts and other activities popping up all over metro Denver, and beyond. Of course, there’s plenty of entertainment indoors, too. Keep reading for the 21 best events of the week.
Tuesday May 29
School of Rock, a 2003 film starring Jack Black, is all about chaos in the classroom, as Black’s character, Dewey, a substitute teacher (and aspiring rock star) with too-perfect students, turns the class into a shredder’s dream. Turns out it morphed into a pretty swell — and surprisingly inspirational — Broadway musical, which comes to Denver this week as part of a national tour. Perfectly timed to kick off summer vacation for your own students ages eight and older, School of Rock opens Tuesday, May 29, and runs through June 10 at the Buell Theatre in the Denver Performing Arts Complex. Tickets start at $25; reserve yours and learn more at denvercenter.org.
