  • StageDoor produces magic in spoof ‘The 39 Steps’

    Conifer’s StageDoor Theatre guarantees an abundance of thrills wrapped in technical magic as it presents the hilarious spoof, “The 39 Steps.”
    The play seemingly has it all, as it tests the limits of live theater. This epic adventure tackles what some once believed could not be done on stage, including a daring escape from a moving train, a chase across the Scottish moors and even a plane crash. The cast of four is challenged by playing multiple characters throughout.

  • Evergreen Chorale honors Christmas

    It’s Christmas time again, and nothing is more symbolic of the season than the Evergreen Chorale’s magical holiday show.
    This weekend, the chorale will present “A Ceremony of Carols: A Tapestry of Holiday Music for Choir, Harp, Piano and Flute.” Both performances will be held at churches – Central Presbyterian Church in Denver on Friday and Rockland Community Church in Genesee on Sunday — embellishing the delivery of old time carols and new.

  • After-Christmas ponderings

    On Dec. 17, I was fortunate enough to take in the Evergreen Player’s adaptation of “A Christmas Carol.” The novella took the shape of a Christmas reading with six characters delivering the message.
    Unthinkable as it is, the cast and crew tore down the set from the previous show by 11:30 the night before and redesigned the stage for “A Christmas Carol” by show time at 2 p.m. Sunday.

  • StageDoor Theatre aglow with Cinderella, Christmas

    The StageDoor Theatre has the perfect venue to swing open the gates of Christmas fun and fantasy. This Friday night, the Conifer theater will begin its nine-day run with Rogers and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella.” This revised rendition of the beloved fairytale will easily engage the audience with more clever lines than ever before. This time, it’s the Senior Company, ages 14 to 18, taking the stage with a cast of 33.
    Director/playwright Kelly McAllister returns to StageDoor to direct this dazzling performance.

  • Center for the arts celebrates holidays

    Center for the Arts Evergreen is now in full swing for the holiday season. On Friday, the center hosted its opening Holiday Show and Gift Shop reception. The gallery morphed into a jubilant showcase of one-of-a-kind handmade gifts and seasonal items from both Evergreen and Front Range artists. The show will be open until Dec. 29, giving everyone a chance to shop even after Christmas.

  • Shining Stars Concert Series presents two inspiring performers

    The Evergreen Chorale will continue its Shining Stars Concert Series this weekend with two inspiring presentations. The series, a fund-raiser for the Chorale, helps guarantee its  mission “to provide a high-quality performing arts venue in the mountain community.”

  • A treasure comes to town

    Pueblo-based artist Philip J. Spanier knows no bounds. As a Picasso-esque painter, surrealist, relief artist, sculptor and published author, Spanier’s work is now at Epic Estate Treasures in downtown Evergreen.

    Among this self-taught artist’s creations is his second sculpture of Liberace. The first was presented and sold to Liberace when Spanier met him in person. He also met Paul McCartney and “wowed” him with his sculpture of the Beatles.

  • “Thoroughly Modern Millie” brings theatre alive

    Conifer’s Venue Theatre opens Friday with the favored musical “Thoroughly Modern Millie.” The 1967 film of the same name was an immediate success and eventually made it to Broadway in 2002, winning six Tony Awards, including best musical. The story, which takes place in the 1920s, was quite the learning experience for the all high school student cast. Many of the props had never been seen before, such as the typewriter and flapper-style period costuming.

  • Boogie at the Barn looks forward to 2018 schedule

    Of all the musical attractions found in this mountain community, Boogie at the Barn remains a favorite. This past September saw the completion of the 2017 Boogie dance schedule, and as always it was successfully attended and held in high regard by all.
    This particular event honored the Alpine Rescue Team, which is dedicated to saving lives through search, rescue, and mountain safety education. All funds raised after cost went to the rescue team. Subject2Change kicked off the music, with Something Underground following.
