The Denver Center for the Performing Arts partnered with the downtown Hard Rock Cafe for a night of holiday hits, rock songs and showtunes featuring cast members from all four current productions: Disney’s The Lion King, A Christmas Carol, Murder for Two and The Santaland Diaries.

Ticket sales for the Nov. 23 event benefited The Denver Actors Fund and DCPA Education’s “send a child to a Theatre Company student matinee” program.
