Arts and Entertainment

  • Evergreen Players’ production asks, ‘Are we there yet?’
  • ‘Urinetown’ goes to pot, and you’ll laugh the whole way
  • Exhibit’s photos meld art, science

    For many people, art and science don’t mix. However, scientists and artists have shared an interdisciplinary connection for centuries. Artists relied upon the work of biologists to learn how to properly depict anatomic details of the animal kingdom. Conversely, scientist relied on artists’ works as a teaching guide to illustrate scientific texts. In an upcoming Evergreen exhibit by microbiologist-turned-photographer Michael Gabridge, viewers will see that the boundaries between art and science, while once believed to be conventionally steadfast, are unexpectedly fluid.

  • ‘1776’ shows the humanity of founding fathers

    In the wake of a tempestuous election season, it’s comforting and inspiring to reflect upon the beginnings of our nation. The Evergreen Chorale, in its latest production of the musical “1776,” provides us with the opportunity to travel back in time to witness the fights, debates and compromises that led to the founding of our country. The show also reminds us that one can always find much humor in the serious business of creating and running a country.

  • Exhibit of Native American art coming to Evergreen

    Jack Lima blames his mother for his obsession with Native American art. “She had this arrowhead that I coveted when I was 5 years old. I wanted to know everything about it. Who made? Why did they use it? But I had to get married and open a gallery before she would give it to me,” says Lima.

  • This ‘Monty’ is full of laughs and meaning
  • A holiday tradition that thrills like the Dickens

    This is the time of year when holiday traditions are forged. For many of us, an annual performance of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” is part of our scrapbook of holiday memories. For several years, a small group of Evergreen Players veterans have created their own yuletide tradition by offering up heartfelt and oftentimes hilarious staged readings of the holiday classic at Center/Stage.

  • Children’s Chorale took audience around the world

    In 1941, the United Service Organizations, or USO, was founded to provide entertainment to troops around the world. Perhaps the most famous performer who toured with the USO was Bob Hope. Over the course of his career, Hope appeared in or hosted almost 200 USO performances, including annual Christmas tours for 35 consecutive years. This year, in the spirit of the holiday, the Evergreen Children’s Chorale performed a USO-type variety show called “A Passport in Song.”

  • ‘Little Mermaid Jr.’ makes waves on Evergreen stage

    In the last 25 years, Disney has brought to life some of the most magical stories of our time. “The Little Mermaid” is quite possibly the most magical of all Disney animations, packed with undersea orchestras and the iconic story of star-crossed loves, Ariel the mermaid and Eric the Prince. Add a live theatrical component to this show, and the magic is off the charts. Rocky Mountain Academy of Evergreen is excited to bring this show to the stages of Evergreen on Nov. 16 and 17.

  • Artist’s paintings tell layered stories

    To be a storyteller is to convey events in words, images and sounds, often by improvisation or embellishment. This is a simplified definition. A true storyteller makes others experience emotion through her images or improvisation.
