Today's Features

  • The holiday season is upon us, and what better way to kick off your shopping than by supporting our local Evergreen artists? Friday, Dec. 5, marks the 23rd annual Holiday Walk in downtown Evergreen. The walk begins at 5 p.m. with the arrival of Santa and Mrs. Claus at the Evergreen Lake House to light the community tree. Crowds then walk with Santa down Main Street and take holiday photos, enjoy entertainment, and shop for gifts.

  • It’s quite a hot time in the Borocle, one of downtown Evergreen’s newest art galleries.

    The gallery in the building at the southeast corner of Highway 73/74 also is a workshop for glass blowers Eric Post and Kyle Purcell, who create jewelry pendants, vases, goblets and other art forms. Mandie Smith rounds out the group, creating wire art plus soaps, scrubs and other items.

  • My first and most important job in writing this essay is to invite all of my mountain neighbors to the Interfaith Thanksgiving Service at St. Laurence Episcopal Church in Conifer at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 25. You will “dine” upon fine music, readings, prayers and hymn singing. You will have an opportunity to contribute to the Mountain Resource Center and Evergreen Christian Outreach. 

  • The age-old quest for “happily ever after” has unfolded in fairy tales, stories and movies throughout time. In 1986, Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine set out to create a musical that asked the next question: What happens after happily ever after? The result was a Tony Award-winning musical that presents a new twist on fairy tales. This weekend, the high school company of StageDoor Theatre in Conifer sets out to answer the question of life after happily ever after in its production of “Into the Woods.”

  • “Grease” is the word around our mountain towns these days. Grab your leather jackets and bobby socks and take a trip down memory lane with the original high school musical! This sock-hop show performed by the Venue Theatre’s high school company is sure to have audiences hand-jiving the night away.

  • Rocky Mountain Academy of Evergreen has once again paired with Lumberg Elementary for some Random Act of Kindness. In the spring of 2012, RMAE donated almost 1,000 books to Lumberg, an elementary school in Jefferson County with a high population of students needing free or reduced-price lunches. 

  • Classic musicals stand the test of time because they have simple story lines, laugh-inducing scripts, and music that sticks with audiences long after the curtain falls. “Anything Goes” is a celebration of the great American musical and one of its greatest composers, Cole Porter. The latest production of this time-honored show, presented by StageDoor Theatre’s high school company, offers a fresh take on this 80-year-old theatrical gem.
