This tragic historical drama offers a brilliant portrait of Sir Thomas More in his last years as Lord Chancellor of England. When King Henry VIII fails to obtain Papal approval for his divorce, he mandates that his subjects sign an “Act of Supremacy” making him the spiritual and temporal leader of England. In this captivating work, we watch as Sir Thomas struggles between the love that he has for his King, his family, and his God, and witness the sad and poignant outcome.

The Colorado Model Railroad Museum is proud to announce the 1st Annual Holiday Festival of Trains.

Over the past few years the Colorado Model Railroad Museum has become a favorite attraction for locals to bring their out-of-town guests. Every year the museum has added hours to the schedule around Christmas break and every year our attendance has risen. In 2013 over 2,000 people visited the museum during the 2 weeks of Christmas break. In response to this the museum has created the 1st Annual “Holiday Festival of Trains”. The museum will kick off the season with a “Night Trains with Santa” event on Friday evening, December 19th, from 5-8pm. The lights will be dimmed, the smell of cookies and hot cocoa will be in the air, music will guide guests through the layout and kids can visit Santa at the Caboose. Family photos with Santa will be available also. The “Holiday Festival Trains” runs from Friday, December 19th to Sunday, January 4th, 2015 during the time children are on Christmas break from school.

There are many more special events during this festival. “Christmas Eve in the Morning” is an event for families to come out on Christmas Eve from 10am-2pm to help pass the time on the longest day of the year for kids. New Year’s Eve will also have special children’s activities and crafts and the museum will be open from 10am-2pm. The Festival will go out with a bang with a Literacy Day featuring Harry Potter and the Hogwarts Express train. There is something for everyone during this festive time. Bring the family and your out of town guests and enjoy a “Holiday Festival of Trains”!

The big hit musical, winner of eight Tony Awards, that will sweep you away to 1960s Baltimore where the ’50s are “so out” and change is in the air. Hairspray is a blockbuster winner with laughter, romance, and deliriously tuneful songs. Queen-sized teen Tracy Turnblad, who has all the right moves, turns her passion for dancing into a spot on the local TV dance program. Transformed into an overnight teen celebrity, Tracy teaches 1962 Baltimore a thing or two about integration and fair play. Watch as a larger-than-life adolescent vanquishes the reigning princess and her conniving mother, singing and dancing her way to her true love — all without mussing her perfectly coiffed hair!
