But the white stuff is bad news for shows playing Denver Center for the Performing Arts: Wednesday and Thursday performances of the national tour of All Shook Up and the resident stagings of A Christmas Carol and Season's Greetings by Denver Center Theatre Company were canceled, a spokesperson confirmed. The Mile High City has a history with snow, and it's thought that roads might be clear enough by Dec. 22 to allow the shows to resume.

The Second City's How I Lost My Denverginity was also canceled at DCPA.

Performances of the musical Hats!, playing the New Denver Civic Center, were also scotched Dec. 20-21.

Thousands of travelers at the Denver airport are stuck there in the days leading up to Christmas. The airport is expected to be operational on Friday.

Patrons with tickets for canceled performances were invited to call Denver Center Ticket Services for exchange information, at (303) 893-4100.
