Caligula (Castillo Blanco Art Studios, 8PM)

The production is free and open to the public, and all attendees are welcome to enjoy a cocktail or two before the show at Castillo Blanco. Accotding to Cripple Creek, the show "promises song, sadism, and the spectacle of a society pushing itself to the brink."
