  • Roger Ambrosier: six decades of artistic inspiration

    Evergreen is fortunate to have a large artistic community, rich in both experience and media.

  • '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

  • ‘Hairspray’ takes on tough issues with comedic style

    Evergreen’s musical theater community has certainly had success with the 1960s. Last year the Evergreen Players presented “Hair” as the summer musical to kick off Arts Alive week. This year, we do the Twist and the Mashed Potato even further back in time in the early 1960s in the Players’ production of “Hairspray.”
