The Music Man

The Colorado Ballet Society has performed a lot of beloved shows, but this marks the debut of their new Theatre Production Company. Enjoy the new life they'll bring to this classic musical, with a multigenerational and multitalented cast. In case you're unfamiliar, the story follows a con man who pretends to be a music teacher, takes the townspeople's money and plans to run off before giving any lessons. But after falling in love with the local librarian, he sticks around and risks exposing himself as a fraud. 7 p.m., June 15-17; 2 p.m., June 17, Colorado Springs School, 21 Broadmoor Ave., $15-$20, danceinthesprings.com.

Cutie and the Boxer

If you haven't heard of Ushio Shinohara, the term "boxer-painter" might be unfamiliar, but Shinohara became famous for fusing painting and punching in his own glorious neo-Dada way. This documentary profiles him and his wife, Noriko, who wanted to create an identity for herself outside her husband's influence. Cutie and the Boxer portrays two artists with two vastly different approaches to art, rolled into one award-winning film. 7-9 p.m., Tim Gill Center for Public Media, 315 E. Costilla St., free, facebook.com/IFSOC.
