As this year’s kickoff to the 60th annual Colorado Shakespeare Festival, CU Boulder is putting on a performance of “The Taming of the Shrew”. Opening on the 11th, this classic comedy takes place in New York during the 1940’s, following Kate, a world war 2 pilot just returned home. She’s paired up with Petrucio, but the two end up in a hilarious battle of wits and night time dancing that eventually leads to a deeper understanding of each other. Tickets for these events are on sale for $20, and patrons are also able to pre-order dinner to enjoy during the show from Boulder’s Savory Cuisines.
All month long, the Tebo Train is running down Pearl Street Mall. Monday through Thursday, kids 10 and under, along with their parents, can enjoy a comfortable ride through the outdoor mall in a miniature train right out of a picture book. The train is already making rounds, and is scheduled to go all the way through August, so there’s plenty of time to make it down and catch a ride. The train departs and arrives right in front of Wells Fargo Bank. Make sure to get there on time, as the last train of each day departs at 11:15AM.
The 14th of this month will be the second week of the annual Band on the Bricks in downtown Boulder. This 10 week long outdoor concert event is a special tradition that few places besides Boulder can claim to have. The variety of music is wide, and gives the public a great taste of what the local musicians have to offer. Plus, local breweries also come out to contribute to the beer, wine, and margarita garden that opens at 5:30. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the event, with the final day landing on the 40th anniversary of the Pearl Street Mall, so the lineup is poised to be one of the best. Everyone’s free to attend and enjoy the music, but of course drinks and food will be charged.
