Colorado Matters is returning to the theater for our 6th annual Holiday Extravaganza on Dec. 8! Host Ryan Warner will take the stage at the Newman Center for the Performing Arts for a show resembling our Holiday Extravaganzas of yore (this time with masks and vaccinations). With interviews, musical guests, and a schlocky holiday song or two, we hearken back to 1963’s “Judy Garland Christmas Show” for what is sure to be a memorable holiday experience.
Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30 p.m.
Attention: please read our COVID policy prior to purchasing your tickets.
We require all patrons 12 and older to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before attending the Colorado Matters Holiday Extravaganza. To qualify as “fully vaccinated,” an individual must have completed their full course of COVID-19 shot(s) 14 days prior to an event. Children under 12 must show a negative COVID-19 test. Specifically, children under 12 who are ineligible to receive or have not yet received the vaccine must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of the performance start time, or a negative COVID-19 antigen test taken within six hours of the performance start time that was administered by an official testing center. Home testing kit results will not be accepted for entry.
Masks will be required for the whole performance, which will run without an intermission.
Join us for a free, virtual event with Colorado author Patricia Raybon on February 8. We'll discuss her new book, "All That Is Secret," a mystery that takes place in 1920s Denver. A young Black theologian seeks to solve her father's murder, following in the footsteps of her literary idol, Sherlock Holmes. Click here for tickets and more information.
