  • ‘Wedding Singer’ a blissful visit to the ’80s

    Every decade has its own unique vibe. The 1920s had fringed flappers dresses, and the ‘60s and ‘70s had bellbottoms. The 1980s was a decade of excess — fluorescent clothing, sky-high shoulder pads and consumerism gone wild. 

  • Young writers find inspiration, encouragement at annual conference

    Nineteen years ago, a group of teachers and educators passionate about writing formed the Mountain Area Young Writers’ Conference. These leaders saw the importance of developing the writing abilities and enjoyment of writing in all mountain area students. Since then, more than 5,000 students have participated in the annual event. This year’s conference is scheduled for Thursday, April 24, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at Evergreen Country Day School.

  • Evergreen seeking state designation as arts district

    Evergreen has been given the go-ahead to apply to become part of a two-year program that will result in the designation of “creative district” by a state funding agency.

    If Evergreen is accepted, a local committee with representatives from all areas of the arts will be given $5,000 in seed money by the state to market and advertise Evergreen for the next two years as a comprehensive arts area, according to Steve Sumner, executive director of Center for the Arts Evergreen.

  • Poignance, laughs live in ‘Apartment 3A’

    A New York theater critic once commented that “Apartment 3A,” the latest production by the Evergreen Players, refused to be pigeonholed — it is part comedy, part drama, and all heart. This description not only works for “Apartment 3A,” but for the Evergreen Players as well. The Players’ 2014 season offers a diverse mix of shows, including the musical “Annie,” comedic performances by the EPiC improvisation group, and Jeff Daniels’ play “Apartment 3A,” which opens Friday.

  • High school artists honored at CAE exhibit

    The Center for the Arts Evergreen was pleased to unveil the work of high school artists from throughout our mountain community at the opening reception of the annual High School Art Show on Sunday, March 9. The new show features outstanding artworks from four area high schools — Evergreen, Conifer, Clear Creek and Platte Canyon. 

  • EHS troupe set to raise the roof with ‘Fiddler’

    “Fiddler on the Roof,” which opened on Broadway in 1964, had the first musical theater run in history to surpass 3,000 performances. For many years, the show was a school- and community-theater staple, and theater critics claim that due to the show’s global popularity, there are at least 10 simultaneous productions of “Fiddler on the Roof” in performance somewhere in the world. All we need is one production in our mountain community, and Evergreen High School’s interpretation of the time-honored classic should fit the bill.

  • School art show opens Friday at Shadow Mountain Gallery

    The artistic creations of area elementary school students will be on display at Shadow Mountain Gallery beginning Friday.

    Most of the works are two-dimensional, said Don Fairchild, coordinator for the 20th annual school art show at the gallery.

    Teachers at each of the participating schools have selected six to eight art pieces created by students in kindergarten through sixth grade.

  • EAA spring show is all wet — and that’s a good thing

    Water has been our constant companion in Evergreen this year. From the downtown flooding in September to a big snow season this winter, we have been surrounded by water in all its forms. The Evergreen Artists Association’s spring show, “Water,” seems especially fitting. The EAA will put forth its best artwork depicting water in every form — ice, mist, steam, clouds, dew, fog, crystals and snow.
