Today's Features

  • We’ve all met the girl who wants something so badly that she tries too hard to get it. That’s Charity Hope Valentine, the girl who wants to be loved so much that she has lost sight of who she is. Charity sings, dances, laughs and cries her way through “Sweet Charity,” the latest production by StageDoor Theatre’s high school company.

  • Hungry alien plants on a quest for world domination aren’t usually what come to mind when one thinks of a sentimental love story. In the case of “Little Shop of Horrors,” alien plants, skid-row orphans and maniacal dentists are exactly the right recipe for unlikely love. The Evergreen Chorale’s production of this madcap musical proves that love can be found in the most unlikely places even with a lounge-chair-size monster plant hanging over your shoulder.

  • Love is indeed a many splendored thing. At Center for the Arts Evergreen’s 11th annual members show, the theme of love will be interpreted in many ways, but above all will demonstrate local artists’ love of their crafts.

    In recent years, CAE has curated a spring member show without a theme — leaving the subject matter of the works up to the artists.

  • Valentine’s Day is celebrated in many ways. Some use the day to honor their loved one; others call it National Single Awareness Day, and bemoan or celebrate their uncoupled status. Whatever your take on love, one thing is certain — love in all forms is fun, and the more you can laugh at yourself, the more fun you’ll have. StageDoor Theatre’s adult company is presenting a hilarious look at love in all forms in the upcoming “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change,” opening on Jan. 30.

  • Clues and questions in hand, groups of youngsters spent time recently roaming through Evergreen in search of sculptures in a scavenger hunt sponsored by Sculpture Evergreen.

    While looking in various places, the youngsters discovered three-dimensional creations that appealed to them and were fun to see.

  • While on the ice at Evergreen Lake on New Year’s Eve, Arvada resident Guy Kennedy and his wife, Kim, got a big surprise. Friends and former teammates who are members of the Dawg Nation Hockey Foundation presented the couple with a $10,140 check to assist with a health crisis in their family.

  • Ethan Vimont sums up what he learned during his two consecutive terms as a Peace Corps volunteer in one word.

    “Patience,” he said. 

    The 27-year-old Pine native returned to the U.S. in December after stints working in Mali and then Nepal.

  • They came, they sang, they lit candles on the menorah.

    That was both the grand plan and the simple purpose of the 60 to 100 attendees at Saturday's 10th annual Festival of Lights on the lawn outside the Evergreen Lake House. 

    They sang along to two Jewish blessings and watched as four candles were lit for Hanukkah. A fifth "helper" candle called the "shamash" was placed in the center of the 12-foot-high menorah.

  • There are times in when music can be made even more beautiful by the setting in which it is presented. In the case of the Evergreen Chorale’s latest collaboration with the Jefferson Symphony Orchestra, the concerts’ beautiful settings will make the music all the more joyous and the holiday season all the more festive.

  • Sisters Caitlin and Sidney Powell lug their guitars into the Muddy Buck on a recent morning, ready for a potential photo shoot, even though it’s the breakfast coffee hour.
