  • Sculpted to perfection

    Sculptor Dan Toone stood in front of his piece as it was being installed in downtown Evergreen.

    While Toone, from Taylorsville, Utah, said he didn’t worry that something might go wrong during the installation, his crossed arms and hand over his mouth belied something a bit different.

    The 300-pound, 11-foot metal sculpture called "Austere" now stands in front of Evergreen Crafters as part of the yearly Sculpture Walk sponsored by Sculpture Evergreen, formerly Art for the Mountain Community.

  • Chorale plans swinging fund-raiser at Lake House

    On Friday night, the Evergreen Lake House will get into the swing at the Evergreen Chorale’s Swing Into Spring event. This special evening of 1940s music and swing dancing is a fund-raiser for the chorale and for Center/Stage Theatre, and will include a group swing dance lesson, dinner, drinks, and a live auction.

  • Evening of short plays is provocative, poignant

    Many dictionaries define “reality check” as “an assessment to determine if one’s circumstances or expectations conform to reality.” In the Evergreen Players’ latest evening of short plays, “Reality Check,” the actors and audience members alike will find themselves transported to four distinct and wonderfully warped worlds, each of which makes us question what reality truly is.

  • Glass artists’ partnership a successful fusion

    The partnership of artists David and Danna Cuin goes beyond a love of glass. The couple, both of whom have professional backgrounds in technical specialties, jumped into the world of art in 1998 and have never looked back. This month, the Cuins are approaching retirement from their second careers, as artists. After showing their work in galleries throughout the world, the Cuins will bring their entire collection of glass pieces home to the Evergreen Gallery.

  • Evergreen Jazz Festival to feature four new groups

    The Felonius Smith Trio is among four musical groups making their debut at the Evergreen Jazz Festival in July. Bassist Scott Johnson and harmonica player Nic Clark will perform a blend of country, folk and delta blues with Jeff Smith, who has mastered a finger-picking style on his slide guitar. 

    The trio will showcase tunes from its recently released CD, “Before That Rooster Crows,” at the Jazz Festival, which runs July 24-26 at venues in Evergreen.

  • Verdict: EHS production of ‘Legally Blonde’ a hit

    Wrapped in a wardrobe of hot pink and carrying her dog, Bruiser, the brainy and beautiful Elle Woods brings a sparkle to Evergreen High School’s production of “Legally Blonde: The Musical,” which opens this weekend.

    “Legally Blonde” is based on the original novel by Amanda Brown and the 2001 film starring Reese Witherspoon. With a book by Heather Hach and music and lyrics by Nell Benjamin and Laurence O’Keefe, the musical premiered on Broadway in 2007, running for 595 performances and garnering multiple Tony and Drama Desk nominations.

  • Grants kick off Photography Month at Main Street Fine Art
  • Chorale choreographs a notable production of ‘Guys & Dolls’

    The Evergreen Chorale’s production of “Guys & Dolls” — in addition to having great music and a comedic plot — has some special elements.

    First, Pat Payne is back directing his second show for the Chorale. Payne is well known in the Denver area theater scene, most recently at the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities.

    Second, the cast is a 50/50 mix of Evergreen Chorale regulars from the area and those coming up the hill to be part of the production.

  • ‘9 to 5, the Musical’ hits comedic, poignant notes

    The high school cast at StageDoor Theatre in Conifer has been working overtime — much longer than 9 to 5 — to prepare for the opening of the musical “9 to 5,” which became famous in the 1980s thanks to the 1979 film and the music of Dolly Parton. Times have changed since the film, but anyone who follows the news knows that office politics and the role of women at work are still as fiercely debated in 2015 as they were in 1979.

  • StageDoor’s ‘Sweet Charity’ is full of love, laughs

    We’ve all met the girl who wants something so badly that she tries too hard to get it. That’s Charity Hope Valentine, the girl who wants to be loved so much that she has lost sight of who she is. Charity sings, dances, laughs and cries her way through “Sweet Charity,” the latest production by StageDoor Theatre’s high school company.
