  • Madrigal Faire set to stroll through EHS

    For 25 years, the music students of Evergreen High School have presented the annual Madrigal event. The celebration began many years ago as a Madrigal dinner, and over the years has evolved into a Madrigal Marketplace and Faire. On Saturday, Dec. 3, visitors can enjoy strolling minstrels, jugglers and a taste of Jolly Olde England to kick off the holiday season.

  • Sculptor finds inspiration in a primitive place

    Once they have acquired the skills of their trade, artists set out on a path to discover the subject matter that stirs their artistic souls. For Santa Fe-based artist Jill Shwaiko, it wasn’t until after her formal education was complete that she stumbled upon the images that inspire and inform her work — primitive petroglyphs of bighorn sheep.

  • Children’s Chorale scores big with ‘Favorites’ program

    Every December, members of the Evergreen Children’s Chorale gather at Center/Stage to present a show filled with holiday cheer. Each performance ends with ECC alumni joining the Chorale for the annual alumni number, “A Simple Song of Peace.” In celebration of its 20th anniversary, the ECC has reached out to its alumni to not only perform the final number this year, but to help create the show.

  • For Evergreen native, art is about life

    Art and dance have always been a part of Sarah Wallace Scott’s life. The Evergreen native grew up studying ballet and theater but ultimately found her life’s work in visual art. It is no surprise that this emerging artist leapt at the chance to erase the boundaries between visual and performing art. Her work will be featured this month in a unique collaboration between the resident artists of Denver’s Redline Gallery and Ballet Nouveau Colorado.

  • High-schoolers going strong in ‘Hello, Dolly’ at StageDoor

    Say the words “Hello, Dolly” in public, and you’re bound to hear at least a handful of people whistling or humming the eponymous song from the 1964 Broadway musical. With its catchy tunes and farcical plot, “Hello, Dolly” sticks with audiences long after they’ve left their seats. StageDoor Theatre’s production of this Tony-winning musical should prove no different. The high school company is filled with new faces and brings a fresh energy to the time-honored Broadway bonanza.

  • Director has special connection to ‘Memoirs’

    Many of playwright Neil Simon’s award-winning plays were autobiographical in nature. The acclaimed 1983 hit “Brighton Beach Memoirs” was no exception. In the case of the upcoming Evergreen Players production, the show is semi-autobiographical not only for the playwright but for the director as well.

  • Evergreen Gallery embarks on a new era

  • ‘Parallel Lives’ continues to win acclaim

    2011 has been a banner year for the Evergreen Players, who are garnering national recognition for the play “Parallel Lives.” In March, the Players won the regional American Association of Community Theatres festival. Three months later, the cast and crew took the show to the national competition in Rochester, N.Y. While attending the national festival, the show sparked international interest, and the Players were invited to perform “Parallel Lives” at the One Act Play Festival in Heidelberg, Germany, on Oct. 9.

  • Artists’ ideas keep new gallery vibrant

    Most art galleries are vibrant by nature — the walls packed with colorful or inspiring art that grabs the visitor’s attention. But not all galleries have a vibrant atmosphere in addition to eye-catching art. The Main Street Fine Art Gallery, the latest endeavor of the Evergreen Artists Association, is a lively gallery whose art as well as atmosphere change frequently thanks to a dedicated group of artists.

  • ‘Arsenic and Old Lace’ will make your heart race

    Each year as the community prepares for Halloween, store shelves are lined with sinister costumes, and our world dresses itself in a bit of the macabre. This annual tradition proves that we find a bit of pleasure in scaring ourselves silly. The latest production of “Arsenic and Old Lace” at StageDoor Theatre is much more silly than scary, but the black comedy is still dotted with the all of the spine-tingling macabre that makes this time of year so much fun.
