Today's Features

  • 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.

     

  • “Curtains,” the newest production at StageDoor Theatre, is a comedy whodunit that pays homage to the brassy musical comedies of the 1950s. “Curtains” was created by the powerhouse musical-theater team of Fred Ebb and John Kander, who were responsible for such great musicals as “Chicago” and “Cabaret.”

    My name is Pam Montgomery, and I’m a foodie. I love anything to do with food: eating it, cooking it, shopping for it, and getting others excited about it. I enjoy discovering a new restaurant or coffee shop, eating meals outside, browsing farmers markets, and even grocery shopping. It’s true. I can wander for a very long time in a produce aisle, take advantage of every taste offered, and always have my eye out for those discount sections hidden in the back.

  • Springtime in the Rockies can mean a lot of different things — a last-minute snowstorm before winter gives up for another year, tulips pushing up through the slowly thawing ground, or birds mating at the sign of warmer weather. Visitors to the Alliance Artists of Evergreen show “Springtime in the Rockies,” at the Center for the Arts Rotary Gallery at Center/Stage, will be privy to delightful images that are sure to take the chill off the final days of winter.

  • A traditional farce is a light, humorous play in which the plot depends on a skillfully exploited situation rather than the development of character. The Evergreen Players are pleased to use their upcoming production of “Black Comedy” to give audiences a laugh while hopefully bringing some much needed light to one family in darkness.

  • Nita the goose is lonely no more.

    The 7-year-old goose, who lost her mate two months ago has found two new friends, a mated pair named Harry and Sally.

     

    Harry and Sally also are white Chinese geese like Nita, and they came to Nita’s owners, Marie and George McLaughlin of Morrison, through a High Timber Times subscriber.

    “She didn’t want her name used in the paper,” Marie said. The woman had rescued the two geese but she already had chickens, so she didn’t especially want the geese.

  • Friends and family call Evergreen old-timer Louise Stransky Hendryx one of a kind, a strong woman, a lover of animals.

     

    And at 100 years old, Louise is still going strong. Hundreds of well-wishers turned out for her birthday party Sunday at the Church of the Transfiguration.

  • Strains of “Arabian Nights” can be heard wafting through the foothills from StageDoor Theatre. Enter the theater, and your family will be transported to the royal palace in the kingdom of Agrabah. StageDoor’s upcoming production of "Aladdin Jr." will transport you to a land with glowing genies, real flying carpets and familiar songs that will take you to “A Whole New World.”

  • Spring cleaning is just around the corner. Many people will clean out their closets and garages, tossing rusty tools and scratched CDs into the trash. The artists at the Evergreen Gallery have a different take on “trash.” The old adage says, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”

  • The Mountain Area Science Fair was held Feb. 10-11 at Evergreen Country Day School. Entries were judged in two divisions: second and third grade, and fourth through sixth grade.

    Schools participating this year were Bergen, Carlson, Dear Creek, Elk Creek, Evergreen Country Day, Marshdale, Parmalee, Ralston, West Jeff and Wilmot. More than 200 projects were judged.
