  • What happens after happily ever after

    The age-old quest for “happily ever after” has unfolded in fairy tales, stories and movies throughout time. In 1986, Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine set out to create a musical that asked the next question: What happens after happily ever after? The result was a Tony Award-winning musical that presents a new twist on fairy tales. This weekend, the high school company of StageDoor Theatre in Conifer sets out to answer the question of life after happily ever after in its production of “Into the Woods.”

  • Evergreen sculptors pedal an eclectic piece

    It’s definitely not traditional stained glass, and it’s really not traditional public art, either.

    Instead, it’s a long roller-coaster-like ribbon of steel with attached bicycle wheels that are filled with stained glass. The 16-foot sculpture is the creation of Creative Stained Glass Studio, and it will be on its way to Kennesaw, Ga., to be installed in the atrium at AMLI Residential.

The latest production of this time-honored show, presented by StageDoor Theatre’s high school company, offers a fresh take on this 80-year-old theatrical gem.

The EAA’s fall exhibition is the largest juried show in the recent history of the organization and displays works from 125 artists throughout Colorado.
