  • Teen comedy troupe blends laughs, learning

    Live from Evergreen … it’s Friday night! On June 1, a select group of teen drama students will follow in the footsteps of sketch-comedy legends to create their own version of “Saturday Night Live” at Center/Stage Theatre. This improvisational comedy troupe, known as The Tribe, is now in its fourth summer of performance, and audiences are sure to be delighted by their quick-wit and unique brand of humor that only a Colorado teenager can conjure.

    The Tribe was born from a musical theater summer camp offered by the Evergreen Players.

  • EAA scholarship supports art students

    The Evergreen Artists Association is known throughout our mountain community as an organization that promotes the visual arts by supporting working artists. What many people don’t know is that EAA also supports emerging art students with its Youth Scholarship. Funds raised from donations throughout the year are used to support this merit-based scholarship, which is applied toward college tuition for one high school senior. This year’s first-place scholarship was awarded to Conifer High School senior Caitlyn Maloney.

  • Children’s Theatre re-creates classic tale

    “Beauty and the Beast”is a “tale as old as time.” Based on a French fairy tale, the Disney version of this classic has been a choice for children’s theaters ever since the animated Disney movie became popular in 1991. Colorado Children’s Theatre, a mainstay of theatrical and music education in the mountain area, invites you to “be its guest” at the upcoming production of “Beauty and the Beast.”

  • Renowned Evergreen artist Baird will have exhibit at Mirada

    Critics are quick to make comparisons in the world of art. It’s often easier to define an artist’s body of work by what it resembles rather than by what it is. Many critics have compared artist Andrew Baird’s work to that of abstract expressionist Jackson Pollock. However, this comparison is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Baird’s signature style and densely layered paintings. One must see Baird’s work in person to grasp the depth of this Evergreen artist’s technique.

  • ‘101 Dalmations Kids’ hits the spot for young theater fans

    “101 Dalmatians” is a powerful story about family, animal cruelty and the triumph of kindness. It grabbed audiences in its first incarnation, the 1961 animated version, and it continued to warm hearts in the 1996 live-action version of the film. What could be more heartwarming than this classic story performed by the elementary school cast from StageDoor Theatre? On Thursday, May 10, the young actors from the Conifer-based theater open their production of “101 Dalmatians Kids,” a rollicking musical version of the canine tale.

  • Children’s Chorale claims a piece of the action

    A cast of gangsters is in Evergreen. You won’t see the streets filled with Tommy guns and ice picks, though. On the contrary, you will see Center/Stage Theatre filled with singing and dancing gangsters caught up in a nonviolent gang war fought with “splurge blasters” that spew forth Silly String. In celebration of its 20th anniversary, the Evergreen Children’s Chorale will deliver a tongue-in-cheek tribute to the 1920s gangster flick with its upcoming production of “Bugsy Malone, Jr.”

  • Children’s Theatre grows up for ‘Guys and Dolls’

    “Guys and Dolls” is a classic Broadway hit that has been reprised hundreds of times. The Colorado Children’s Theatre’s reprisal is no less sentimental than a Broadway revival of the show. “Guys and Dolls” was the first show performed by the Colorado Children’s Theatre when it opened its doors in Evergreen seven years ago.

  • Chorale planning memorable finish to 2011-12 season

    The Evergreen Chorale is gearing up for a big finish to its 2011-12 season. Over the next three weeks, the Chorale will perform some of the most beloved choral music of the last four centuries in two separate concert events, “Stars I Shall Find” and Gustav Mahler's 2nd Symphony.

     

  • Young Writers’ Conference celebrates storytelling

    In spite of budget cuts and increasing class sizes, there are still many things to celebrate in our mountain area schools. As a community, we celebrate athletic success, and we celebrate musical accomplishments. For more than 15 years, a group of Jefferson County educators and parents has organized an event to celebrate academic success, particularly success in writing and literacy. Each year more than 350 students from all mountain schools gather to celebrate the skills of writing and storytelling at the Mountain Area Young Writers’ Conference.

  • ‘Jungle Book’ jumps with jazzy tunes

    The Prelude to the Evergreen Children’s Chorale is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year. In honor of this momentous birthday, the Prelude is excited to bring audiences a jungle jumpin’ with jazz in the Disney classic “Jungle Book.” The Prelude is made up of 33 mountain-area second-, third- and fourth-graders representing 13 different schools — public, private and home-schooled.
