Taste of Shakespeare –
All’s Well That Ends Well
Helena has married her husband, but he’ll have none of her. She sets out on a campaign to win his heart and his bed, aided by powerful friends. We’ve set this production in the Old West, to bring this classic tale closer to home. You’ll find the show full of people in disguise, broad buffoonery, and a satisfying, happy ending.
Taste of Shakespeare offers FREE performances during the summer, indoors and out, at locations up and down the Front Range. While the shows are free, we do accept donations at the end of each performance, and we appreciate your generosity to help us continue this work.
For outdoor performances, bring seating, water, sun screen, bug spray, and anything else you might need for a couple of hours outdoors. For indoor performances, we open the doors for general seating 30 minutes before curtain.
Here are the performance dates, times, and locations.

Description: On the run from Shere Khan, a ferocious tiger who has banished him from the jungle, a human boy named Mowgli is aided by an agile panther name Bagheera. Along the way, the two meet a sinister snake named Kaa, a herd of elephants, and a giant bear named Baloo, who teaches them the swingin’ musical rhythms of the jungle. After surviving a dangerous encounter with a band of monkeys led by King Louie, Mowgli and Bagheera are forced to run for their lives. Shere Khan returns, leading our protagonists to rally their fellow jungle creatures into battle and restore peace to the jungle.
