  • The Evergreen Players are teaming with Aurora’s Vintage Theatre to present “RFK: A Portrait of Robert F. Kennedy” for two weekends beginning Friday evening. Although Evergreen will be experiencing this play for the first time, it has been running continuously throughout the state for the past four years.
    Professional actor James O’Hagan-Murphy of Denver continues to enthusiastically portray Robert Kennedy and has established quite the reputation for doing so. In fact, author Jack Holmes was so moved by his performance that he sent him an autographed copy of the play.

  • To observe the culmination of Hanukkah and begin 2017, Conifer’s St. Laurence Episcopal Church and Congregation Beth Evergreen hosted an interfaith spiritual renewal celebration on Dec. 31.

    The celebration, which was at Congregation Beth Evergreen, was an opportunity to resolve, recommit and renew before the new year.

    The Rev. Nancy Malloy and Rabbi Jamie Arnold said the two congregations had been trying to coordinate a join ceremony, and said the last night of Hanukkah and New Year’s Eve “thematically fit together.”

  • The annual Hanukkah celebration at the Evergreen Lake House this year took an unusual form.

    Rather than the typical evening lighting of the menorah, Rabbi Levi Brackman of Judaism in the Foothills held a short ceremony on Christmas morning. This year, Hanukkah began Dec. 24 and will end on New Year’s Eve.

    Brackman said it was the first time he’s orchestrated a morning menorah lighting, but that it was good to mix things up a bit.

  • Risen Lord Lutheran Church is snuggly tucked away in an office building along Conifer’s Sutton Road near Dallman Drive. The interior is humble and unassuming — basic windows, modest furniture and kitchen utilities, and blue skies and white clouds decorating some panels in the ceiling.

    Instead of a large altar, the church has a plain circular table around which worshippers gather for the sacraments.

    In its own way, this worship space feels a bit like a home away from home.

    And that’s really the point, says Pastor Teri Hermsmeyer.

  • It’s lean times at the Venue Theatre Company in Conifer, but not in the usual sense: the education-based youth theater is in short supply of space, funds and extra hands — all the consequences of success.

  • Evergreen Fine Art Gallery will be celebrating its 25th anniversary Saturday, conjuring memories of the many events held at the high-end gallery over the years and the artists it has championed.

    The festivities begin at 2 p.m. and will feature more than 15 prominent artists who have been favorites at the gallery. Stacey Patterson, Pem Dunn and Robert Spooner will be on hand featuring recent works, and Edward Aldrich will conduct live demonstrations. Models will mix with the crowd displaying Andrea Li’s handcrafted jewelry.

  • Once again the Evergreen Chorale, along with the Jefferson Symphony Orchestra, will embrace the season with their annual Christmas production. This year holiday classics and the mini-opera “Amahl and the Night Visitors” will be presented Friday evening and Sunday afternoon at two separate locations. Because both shows promise to draw a huge audience, the opera and musical selections will be performed at Denver’s 100-year-old Central Presbyterian Church on Friday and at Rockland Community Church on Sunday.

  • The bands might not be very well known, but the familiar intimate stage, theater seating and stories about the musicians’ songs and inspirations are making Conifer Loves Music a local attraction.

    The music series kicked off its second round of shows last weekend at StageDoor Theatre — headlined by Denver/New York City-based band The Winchester Local and Texas rock band Lindby.

    But before either band took the stage, Conifer’s Ben Powell opened the show, performing his music live for the very first time.

    The Evergreen Chorale will welcome a guest performance of “James and the Giant Peach” on Sunday at Center/Stage Theatre, acted and directed by the Phamaly Theatre Company from Denver. This professional-grade musical is for the whole family and promises to provide a festive path toward Thanksgiving.
