Emma
Even people who viewed English class as naptime will find this modernized adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic 1815 novel engaging, thanks to updated dialogue and quips from playwright Kate Hamill. The plot—for those who didn’t finish the book in AP Lit—follows Emma Woodhouse, who plays matchmaker to her acquaintances and ends up becoming entangled in a romance of her own.

Titanic Month at the Molly Brown House
On April 14, 1912, the RMS Titanic struck an iceberg and thus began the tragedy—and legend—of the ship. To commemorate the event, the Molly Brown house—which is the former home of philanthropist, socialite, and Titanic survivor “The Unsinkable Molly Brown”—is hosting activities such as a “Room for Two?” which explores the Titanic in pop culture and “Titanic Escape,” which is a Titanic-themed escape room. Throughout April; times vary; prices vary

Women+Film Festival
Historically, women have been grossly underrepresented in the film industry. To wit: In the 96-year history of the Academy Awards, only three women have won Oscars for best director. This local film fest highlights female contributions to the industry. See movies such as Chosen Family, written, directed by, and starring Heather Graham, and Let the Canary Sing, which documents Cyndi Lauper’s rise to stardom. In between screenings, attend panels on topics such as sexism in the workplace and classes including “Film and Flow Yoga.” April 10–14; times vary; ticket prices vary

Future Fest
If you ask the organizers of this forward-focused fete, the future of the Mile High City is so bright, it deserves an entire celebration. The youth-friendly line-up of events includes comments from Mayor Mike Johnston, a Shark Tank–style pitch competition, sports clinics held by Avalanche and Nuggets personnel, and a concert by Youth on Record’s adolescent-led bands. April 13; 10 a.m.–6 p.m.; free
