  • 'How to Succeed' is a success on all ledgers

    Did you ever wish there was a book that could tell you everything you need to know to be successful in life? In the case of StageDoor Theatre’s upcoming production of "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying," the talented high school players don’t need a book to succeed. This silly and satirical production pokes fun at corporate culture and effortlessly transports the audience straight back to the skinny ties and A-line dresses of the "Mad Men" era.

  • Photographer's wanderlust led him to Colorado's beauty

  • 'Young Frankenstein' is music to our fears

    The American Association of Community Theaters is a nonprofit organization that represents more than 7,000 theaters in the United States. Those 7,000 community theaters present more than 45,000 productions each year and reach 7.5 million audience members. In this dizzying world of statistics, it is rare that a community theater can boast about a premiere. In the case of StageDoor Theater, September is a month for boasting. StageDoor’s first production of the 2013-14 season is a regional premiere of the hilarious Mel Brooks’ show “Young Frankenstein.”

  • Improv comedy goes to the dogs
