For the ogre lover- Shrek the Musical is based on the Oscar®-winning DreamWorks film that started it all, and brings the hilarious story of everyone's favorite ogre to life on the Broadway stage. In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an unseemly ogre—not a handsome prince—shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in a donkey who won't shut up, a bad guy with a SHORT temper, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there's one on hand ... and his name is Shrek. Featuring a terrific score of 19 all-new songs, big laughs, great dancing and breathtaking scenery.

For those who love ballet, The Nutcracker is the way to truly experience Clara's adventures through the Land of the Sweets. This traditional holiday favorite features Tchaikovsky's beloved score performed by a live orchestra, unforgettable characters and dazzling costumes and scenery. Performed at the Ellie Caulkings Opera House, this timeless work is sure to be a joy for both adults and children. 

The Westin Tabor Center is located in downtown Denver at 1672 Lawrence Street, just three blocks from the Denver Performing Arts Complex.  The hotel also offers a Mile High Holiday Shopping Package with transportation to Cherry Creek Shopping District.
