  • 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.

  • Artists from across the nation spend their summers tucked under arts-fair awnings — meeting and greeting, explaining their techniques and selling their work. For many artists, the Evergreen Fine Arts Festival, at Heritage Grove on Aug. 28 and 29, has become the perfect way to wrap up a hectic season of travel and selling.

  • A beautiful piece of art is a remarkable thing, with the ability to stir emotions in people simply through the act of viewing. To watch the creation of art is quite possibly even more amazing. Witnessing the techniques and creative process of individual artists is like looking through a window into the artist’s mind and heart. The Windows to the Divine Plein Air Invitational Paint-Out, set for Aug. 26-28 in Evergreen, will provide opportunities to observe the creation of art and to marvel at its beauty long after the work is complete.

  • One of the secrets to a successful career in art is inspiration. The longevity of a career is determined by an artist’s ability to find daily motivation — something new to arouse the artistic muse and drag him out of hiding. Many artists find this inspiration in new subject matter. Others find it in experimenting with new techniques or styles. For Colorado artist Paul Cunningham, it is a bold mix of both.

  • On the heels of its major renovation and expansion, StageDoor Theatre has renovated its model for summer productions — community theater for all ages. For the first time, adult and child actors alike will be working together to re-create the seamy underbelly of 19th-century London in a rousing rendition of “Oliver!” based on Charles Dickens famous novel “Oliver Twist.”
