  • Not everyone can see beauty in a stack of weather-beaten, sun-bleached wood. But in the hands of Tommy Banaszek and Jeanne Sullivan, salvaged wood turns over a new leaf and is transformed into handmade furniture.
    KnoT New WooD, located in Kittredge at 26030 Highway 74, is the brainchild of Banaszek and Sullivan, who created the business to showcase wood repurposed into elegant, rustic or highly polished custom designs.
    “People come in here and want to touch all the different woods,” said Sullivan.

    People were standing in the dark Saturday night on a faraway hill in the mountains near Pine as they waited for the children.

    But in the velvet calm of quiet pines and forest floor, just before a fat moon slid into view, it wasn’t so calm for Peg Alig, a naturalist, and for the others waiting on the trail that led to the hilltop observatory.

  • Remember the old phrase — usually uttered by some mobster thug or a James Bond-type undercover operative — “I could tell you, but then I would have to kill you”? In the case of the upcoming comedy thriller “Accomplice,” opening at StageDoor Theatre in Conifer, this phrase holds true in spades.

  • Ever wonder why Thanksgiving dinner with the family can be so hilarious — or stressful? Bring together disparate personalities with all of their eccentricities. Add a dash of conversation. Throw in a controversial topic or two, and you have the makings of a family feast failure — or farce, depending on how you look at it. Now imagine that you’ve selected the diners yourself. Replace crazy Aunt Margaret with an astronaut who has a nervous tick or Grandpa Joe with a go-go dancer who wants to be the president. Now you have the makings of an Epic evening.

  • The sponsors of the Tutankhamun exhibit at the Denver Art Museum are offering a special ticket deal to members of the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District, which includes Jefferson and six other counties.

    During September SCFD residents will be eligible to receive one free youth (age 6 to 17) ticket for every adult or senior ticket purchased, as a thank-you gift to cultural district members for their support for more than 20 years.

  • The school buses are groaning to life, pencils are sharpened and the halls are filled with students. School’s back in session. Students are gearing up for another year of camaraderie and creative thought. But why should the kids have all the fun? The Center for the Arts Evergreen is gearing up for its own “school year,” and is kicking off September with a tribute to teachers.

    Friday, Sept. 3, marks the opening of the Center for the Arts Evergreen Teachers Show.

  • The Colorado Children’s Theatre has spent the last four years establishing itself as a go-to place for children’s theatrical training. Directors Kerri Monnerat and Karen Tobey have created classes in musical theater, voice, dance, stage and film acting and a full playbill of performances and theatrical productions. Most importantly, they have created a community in which children ages 4 to 18 feel special and as if they are an integral part of the school.
