The listings desk knows you do. Which is why BALLS! A Holiday Spectacular! might be fun for you. This "new-fashioned variety show" offers music, "flashy guest stars" (gasp!), a "chorus of sock puppets" (double gasp!) and a cash bar.
Should none of that do it for you, know that each performance will benefit a Denver nonprofit, including Fresh City Life, Slow Food Denver and others. Neat.
There you have it. Shows run at 7:31 p.m. Dec. 9-11 and 16-18 at the Curious Theatre Company (1080 Acoma St., Denver). Read more about the show here and find out who the flashy guest stars are below.
