Friday

An Improvised Christmas Carol The name pretty much says it all. The actors take 30 suggestions from the audience for different variables, like Tiny Tim’s affliction and Scrooge’s place of work, and then incorporate them into the show. What a fun way to say goodbye to the holidays! Tickets for this show at Vintage Theatre are $16.

Winter on the Mountain This winter wonderland at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park features 500,000 twinkling lights (that’s 35 miles of light strings) illuminating winter rides, caves and more! With a Winter Wipeout 4D movie, family style dining and fire pits for roasting s’mores, there’s plenty of fun for all ages. Winter Funday Passes are $34 for kids and $39 for adults.

Saturday

Charles and Collin Parson: Continuance Charles Parson says that, as artists, he and his son Collin are exemplary of a continuance, “as overlapping generations, sleeving one era into another.” Hence the name of their joint show at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center. Their sculptures will occupy the El Pomar Gallery to create an experience that connects disparate spaces and, by extension, inspire viewers to recognize awareness of their shared space. Museum admission starts at $8.50.

Cirque Mechanics: Pedal Punk This critically acclaimed performance art show takes audiences to Pedal Punk, a Steampunk inspired place where cycling is the way to escape a technology obsessed society. Tickets for the show, which can be seen at Vilar Performing Arts Center today and tomorrow, are $65 for adults and $45 for kids.

Sunday

Dreamgirls See this popular Broadway musical about the behind-the-scenes reality of the entertainment industry at the Aurora Fox Theatre through January 18. Tickets are $19 for students, $27 for adults and $24 each for groups of six or more.
