The Mile High City has seen a number of fine chocolate and candy manufacturers come and go. But the candy company founded by Carl Hammond Sr., in 1920 is one that is still very much in business. Hammond’s Candy Factory still makes candy the way Carl Hammond made it with the same tempting recipes and the same careful craftsmanship. Tours are free and take approximately 30 minutes. After the tour we will visit the Golden Corral for an all-you-can-eat lunch.

Everything is on the line for seventeen dancers as they audition for a highly sought-after place in the chorus of a Broad-way musical. Through this exhausting process, their stories and vulnerabilities are laid on the line as they ultimately come together and become one singular sensation! In a brilliant fusion of song, dance, and compellingly authentic drama, the musical features one powerhouse number after an-other including “What I Did for Love, “One,” and “I Can Do That.” A Chorus Line remains as powerful today as it did when it took Broadway by storm over 40 years ago.
