Today's Features

  • A horse is a horse, of course, of course … even when he’s placed smack in the middle of one of Van Gogh’s most famous paintings, or donning the bowler hat made famous in Magritte’s iconic “The Son of Man.” This particular horse is Victoor, the spokeshorse for Harmony HorseWorks in Conifer, and the inspiration for the latest show by artist Barbara Wright, Harmony’s founder.

  • Whistle a few bars of “When You Wish Upon a Star” in the company of others, and watch what happens. Throughout the rest of the day, you’ll notice people in your vicinity humming a few lines and even belting out a few words. That’s the magic of Disney. For more than 80 years, Disney has created a storybook world of characters and songs that transports us to a magical place … a place where dreams really do come true.

  • The American Workers’ Concert Series will return to the Evergreen Elks Lodge on May 21.

    The producer of the event, local percussionist and voice-over artist Keith Riker, said the turnout of 350-plus locals at last year’s show “really gave us the drive to get it going again here for our hometown friends.”

     The performance includes more than a dozen local musicians, including singer-songwriters performing original songs and covers of music that speaks to the struggling American worker.

  • Once upon a time, there was a talented group of 58 singers and dancers, a sprinkle of colorful costumes, and a large helping of Stephen Sondheim’s challenging score. This is the recipe for happily-ever-after when the Colorado Children’s Theatre presents “Into the Woods, Jr.,” opening on May 1.

  • The Evergreen Arts and Cultural Alliance has added several events to the 10-day-long Arts Alive celebration planned for Friday, July 16, through Sunday, July 25.

    Arts Alive Evergreen is a joint effort of Evergreen arts organizations and businesses to promote the area’s artistic, historic and recreational resources.

    The event is being built around the Summerfest Arts Festival July 17 and 18 and the Evergreen Jazz Festival, July 23, 24 and 25, which are two of the area biggest summer attractions.

  • “From California, to the New York Island/From the redwood forest, to the Gulf Stream waters/This land was made for you and me.” The Evergreen Chorale is embracing Woody Guthrie’s sentiments in “This Land is Your Land” in the upcoming concerts “Take Me Home, Songs from Across America.”

    The Chorale will travel coast to coast through song, highlighting the diversity of love for our great country.

  • The Parmalee Elementary School gymnasium was bustling with activity recently as about 30 students and a cadre of parents worked to perfect the school musical, “Oz.”

    Students are the main characters in a musical that is based on “The Wizard of Oz” but has a few twists on the beloved tale and new music, according to Christine Gaudreau, the school’s music teacher and director of the play.

  • An evening of fun for the many people in merry old England was a night at the Globe Theatre. Peasants and princes alike gathered to share in the raucous festivities of a Shakespearean masterpiece. And raucous it was — with boos and cheers, the groundlings packed into the pit with tickets priced at a penny a piece, and the actors addressing the audience every step of the way.

    In the spirit of the Globe Theatre’s festive frolics through the Bard’s canon, the Evergreen Players are present “The Complete Works of Shakespeare (abridged).”

  • Maybe far away or maybe real nearby — as nearby as Conifer, in fact — the tale of the infamous Depression-era orphan, Annie, is coming to life at StageDoor Theatre.

    Middle school students from throughout the mountain area are dressed in rags and gathered to portray the Hard Knock Life of the orphans at the Municipal Girls Orphanage.

    Just as the orphans at Ms. Hannigan’s orphanage have pulled together and become a family, so has the junior company at StageDoor.

  • In the hands of Evergreen High School, “Seussical the Musical” is an infectious delight.

    The show is based on the beloved works of Theodore Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss. The story weaves elements from 15 of Dr. Seuss’ books and incorporates familiar characters such as Horton the Elephant, the Sour Kangaroo, Mayzie LaBird, Yurtle the Turtle and many more. Kids of all ages — including the adult variety — will enjoy this comical and light-hearted musical treat.
