Opening No. 106: Aurora Fox’s “Metamorphoses”: That giant pool of water serves as the setting for Mary Zimmerman’s lyrical adaptation of nine interrelated tales based on ancient Greek and Roman mythology.

Showtimes: 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays; 2 p.m. Sundays in the Aurora Fox studio Theater, 9900 E. Colfax Ave., Aurora, 303-739-1970 or the Aurora Fox’s home page.
