  • The young actors of the Venue Theatre in Conifer are heading for France. The Elementary Company opens its production of "The Aristocats" on May 9. The show will be a feline frolic through the Parisian countryside set to a jazzy score by Disney.

    The Venue’s Elementary Company is divided into two casts, the Toughcats and the Wildcats. Each cast will perform in four productions during its assigned weekend. The Toughcats will perform on opening weekend, and the Wildcats will perform during the second weekend. 

  • The jungle is jumping with jazz in StageDoor Theatre’s latest production of "The Jungle Book Kids." StageDoor’s elementary-age casts are geared up for the final weeks of school and a toe-tapping production filled with monkeys and tigers and bears, oh my.

    "The Jungle Book Kids" is adapted from the classic Disney film and includes all of the Disney tunes that will have you whistling on your way home. Children of all ages will love singing along with “The Bare Necessities” and “I Wan’na Be Like You.”

  • “The Final Scene” album and the Yellow Plate Hotel Band have been a labor of love for several Evergreen residents — but especially for lead singer and guitarist Jason Koski.

    Both the band and the album were born at the Muddy Buck Café in Evergreen, where Koski met many of his musician friends. Koski came up with the band’s name while working with vocalist Lacey Capel at the Muddy Buck. (Capel now works and lives in Port Townsend, Wash.) Koski’s bandmate, bass player Gary Loffler, came from another Muddy Buck friendship.

  • For its final show of the 2013-14 season, the Evergreen Children’s Chorale is journeying “under the sea” with Ariel and all of her ocean friends in Disney’s “The Little Mermaid Jr.” Based on the hit animated movie from 1989, this show is sure to reel in audiences of all ages hook, line and sinker. 

  • Every decade has its own unique vibe. The 1920s had fringed flappers dresses, and the ‘60s and ‘70s had bellbottoms. The 1980s was a decade of excess — fluorescent clothing, sky-high shoulder pads and consumerism gone wild. 

  • Excavators were out Wednesday, April 2, to get the ground ready for the new $2.2 million Bergen Park Church.

    The new 11,000-square-foot structure will help the congregation grow, said Pastor Jim Demolar. It will be built on a 2.7-acre parcel at 31919 Rocky Village Drive. The new church is adjacent to the existing church, which is at 1318 County Road 65. The existing church is getting a new address, too — 31880 Rocky Village Drive.

    Bergen Park Church representatives bought the land in October 2010.

  • Nineteen years ago, a group of teachers and educators passionate about writing formed the Mountain Area Young Writers’ Conference. These leaders saw the importance of developing the writing abilities and enjoyment of writing in all mountain area students. Since then, more than 5,000 students have participated in the annual event. This year’s conference is scheduled for Thursday, April 24, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at Evergreen Country Day School.
