Late Seating Policy
Due to the intimate nature of this production, late seating or re-entry will not be allowed. There is no way to seat late arrivals without significantly impacting the audience and actors because of the "in-the-round" nature of the set.  If you do arrive late, you will not be permitted to enter the theatre once the show has started. Of course, we do understand that emergencies and delays are inevitable, and we will do everything we can to accommodate you for a future performance of the same production. If you have any additional questions about our late seating policy, we encourage you to contact the Box Office at 720-898-7200.


This adaptation of Agatha Christie’s best-selling novel promises a fun, fast-paced thrill ride that will bring out the detective in all of us and make us all wonder, whodunit?
