This musical Christmas show based on Dickens' timeless tale is back at Jesters Dinner Theatre and still going strong after more than 20 annual productions, making it a true holiday tradition. The original "Christmas Carol" tells the story of grumpy old miser Ebenezer Scrooge, who's offered a second chance to become a kind and generous human being through the aid of four ghosts who visit him in turn one Christmas Eve, each teaching him valuable lessons. This tale of redemption and forgiveness captures the true spirit and magic of the holiday season for the whole family. Opt for dinner and the show, and enjoy your choice of an entree with sides.
Big Head Todd & The Monsters play a characteristic form of heady jam rock that was pervasive throughout the Rocky Mountain region in the 90s. The group was formed in Boulder, Colorado in 1986 and after gigging around its home turf during its formative years, The Monsters took their show on the road and delivered the goods to a wide swath of America. The band has been at it for several years now and is considered a road-worn and ready-made touring outfit that can rock as hard as it ever has and comprise spontaneous instrumental jams at the flick of a switch.
Based equally in her hometown of Denver, Colorado, and country capitol Nashville, Tennessee, Coles Whalen has absorbed elements from each music scene, blending equal parts Rocky Mountain folk singer/songwriter and Southern country-pop darling. Since self-releasing her debut EP in 2005, Whalen has also proven her dedication to her craft, touring relentlessly and landing spots opening for the likes of Joan Jett, Pat Benatar and The John Butler Trio. After getting a song featured on a national furniture commercial, Whalen received more widespread attention and has continued to grow a devoted fan base.
Arguably one of the best living bass players, Victor Wooten has created a name for himself with a virtuositic playing style and an inherent knack for how low-end frequencies can add layers upon layers of nuance to nearly any sonic arrangement. The youngest child in an extremely musical family, Wooten began learning how to play the bass and the young age of two and by the time he was six, Wooten was already performing in front of audiences. Though Wooten began his career as a professional musician when he started playing with his brothers in a band that played at the Busch Gardens amusement park in Williamsburg, Virginia, his fame as a premier bass player really started to take off after he joined the forward-thinking, progressive bluegrass outfit Bela Fleck and the Flecktones. In the group, Wooten was provided with ample room to properly stretch his musical muscles and showcase his innate ability to create extremely dexterous, yet somehow not too flashy bass lines with a tone and timbre entirely his own.
