AROUND TOWN

Beer & Yoga 1 – 2 p.m. March 4, Dry Dock Brewing Company North Dock, 2801 Tower Rd. Entry is $15. Tickets can be purchased by visiting the Dry Dock Facebook page.

Is there really a better way to *start* off Saturday (we’re not exactly early risers) than with gentle stretching, breathing exercises and calming suds? We think not. All three of those offerings will be featured at Dry Dock Brewing Company this weekend with the latest rendition of the company’s Beer & Yoga series. For $15, get an hour of rejuvenating yoga practice followed by a free pint of Dry Dock oat sodas — because there’s nothing like cleansing your body only to instantly refill it with liver-straining nectar. Plus, this is a great chance to get double your money’s worth in the yoga pants department: Utilizing the athletic elasticity for the yoga, and the tummy absorbing stretch for bloated beer bellies afterward. Mats are not provided and participants must be at least 21 years old.

ONSTAGE

The Nance 8 p.m. March 3 and 4, 6 p.m. March 5. The Edge Theater, 1560 Teller St., Lakewood. Tickets are $28. Visit theedgetheater.com or call 303-232-0363 for more information.

Go for the theater, stay for the burlesque. Such could (maybe should?) be the slogan for The Edge Theater Company’s newest show, which embeds 12 burlesque and vaudeville acts into an onstage narrative that recounts much of 1930s burlesque scene. Riddled with onstage silliness and offstage seriousness, the story relates the tale of Chauncey Miles (Warren Sherrill) and several of his compatriots, played by Jihad Milhem, John Ashton, Patty Ionoff, Emily Tuckman, Amy Gray and Emily Gomes. Rick Yaconis directs this local interpretation of Douglas Carter Beane’s zany display packed with sobering clout.

Nothing like a dose of Irish folklore to start off the greenest month of the year. The team behind the BiTSY Stage is serving up just such a tale this weekend with their newest adaptation of an international folktale, entitled “The Lass Who Went Out With The Cry Of Dawn.” Patti Murtha is directing actors Ryan Barnett, Hannah Carmichael, Karin Carr, Jessica Hall, Katie Medved, Rekha Ohal and Veronica Straight-Lingo through this modern, family-friendly take on a traditional Irish yarn.

What do you get when toss a bitter old grump in a cabin with a slightly neurotic, slightly grief-stricken runaway bride? The Vintage Theatre’s first show of its 2017 season, “Brilliant Traces,” which is wrapping up its run this weekend. The Cindy Lou Johnson drama is directed at The Vintage by one of the theater’s founders, Craig Bond. Christian Mast takes the reigns as the male lead in this heady and transformative drama.

Being discharged from the military often leads to a challenging period of transition, but add in a highly neurotic family and that shift to civilian life becomes much more difficult — and fast. Such is the case for Isaac (Royce Roeswood), a former Marine and the protagonist in Taylor Mac’s acclaimed dramedy “HIR,” which ends its run in Golden this weekend. Upon returning home, Isaac discovers his father (played by Marc Stith) has had a stroke; his sister (Cory Sapienza) is now his brother; and his mother (Martha Harmon Pardee) is falling slowly down the rabbit hole of insanity, calling for an all-out “revolution.” So, yeah, there’s a lot on his plate. Find out what happens in the latest production at Golden’s Miners Alley Playhouse. The show closes March 5.

For those who haven’t yet gotten their dose this week of passionate intrigue in the form of heart-shaped boxes, flowers or … other means, Lowry’s Spotlight Theatre company is featuring another tasty love triangle for local theatergoers. Well, maybe this one’s more of a love square. Heck, it may even be a love pentagon by the time the final curtain falls —there are a lot of angles going on here. Set in Long Island, New York in the 1950s, the show follows Sabrina Fairchild (Regina Steffen), who returns from a stint in Paris to see if she will once again falls in love with David Larrabee (Drew Hirschboek), who is the son of a wealthy tycoon. A series of set-ups and let-downs involving a brother Larrabee (James O’hagan-Murphy) and a lovelorn Parisian follows. Rachel Bouchard directs this tangled web of adoration.
