Today's Features

  • On the afternoon of April 24, 1958, 19 members of Evergreen’s artistic community met in the back room of a shoe repair shop downtown. The purpose of the meeting was to talk about the advantages of forming a local art association “to help artists network, nurture new artists, and provide opportunities for established artists to build reputations with our community.”

  • New Year’s Eve can often be thorn in your side. You want to do something festive to ring in the new year … but you don’t want to drive very far, you don’t enjoy huge crowds, you don’t want to spend a lot of money, and midnight is long past your bedtime. You’re suddenly feeling very “Bah, humbug” when you want to be humming “Auld Lang Syne.” The Evergreen Players’ New Year’s Eve Gala is the answer to all of your celebratory snags.

  • New talent joins the Baroque Folke for this year's free holiday concert. Ruth Harvey adds the bowed strings of viola da gamba and psaltery to the mix, while Jane Pouw Asprelli, a returning former member, displays musical agility at the harpsichord. This holiday tradition of more than two decades will be renewed Sunday, Dec. 21, at 7 p.m. when the Baroque Folke perform at CenterStage/Evergreen.

  • “She-eh-eh-eh-ry, bay-ay-by, Sherry, Baby.” The ear-piercing, spine-tingling falsetto of Frankie Valli fills The Buell Theatre, and you’d swear you’re not in Denver anymore. The Tony Award-winning “Jersey Boys” opened on Dec. 11, and it’s transporting audiences not only back in time, but to a completely different world.

  • Bells are ringing all over Evergreen! In the 1946 film “It’s a Wonderful Life,” a bell rang every time an angel earned it wings. At the Evergreen Fine Art Gallery, this year’s Evergreen Angel has gotten its wings, and you should hear bells ringing around the world.

  • A seasonal concert by the Evergreen Chorale kicks off the holidays on the right note Friday night at Center/Stage in Evergreen. Led by music director Mike Weiker and accompanied by pianist Ellen DeJonge, the 74 members of the Chorale present “Voices of Peace.” The program spans the ages and changing styles of music with holiday compositions from the 17th century to the present.

  • For almost two decades, the Evergreen Children’s Chorale has kicked off the mountain area’s holidays with its seasonal show. From year to year, audiences fondly remember the last quiet strains of “Silent Night” echoing through Center/Stage. This year will be no different, with a holiday show that is sure to please young and old.

  • This year, Stagedoor Theatre in Aspen Park offers up twice the family fun during the holidays. This weekend kicks off two holiday-theme stage shows that are sure to have the whole family laughing straight into 2009.

    “A Fairytale Christmas” opens Dec. 6 and runs for two weekends on Saturdays and Sundays at 1 p.m. This family-friendly show is children’s theater by children and for children.

    The show was written by director Marion Denckla Dye. When Dye couldn’t find just the right script for the holiday season, she took matters into her own hands.

  • The weather outside has been anything but frightful, and for some it might be hard to kick off the holiday season with sunny days hovering near 60 degrees. If you still can’t believe December is just around the bend, the Colorado Children’s Theatre has something to put you in a holiday mood.

    The group’s third annual holiday show, “Make a Joyful Noise,” will feature holiday and seasonal tunes that are sure to put even the biggest Scrooge into a Winter Wonderland sort of mood.

  • The Prelude to the Evergreen Children’s Chorale is no garden-variety singing group. The group, which has been in existence for 11 years, serves as the training ground for second- through fourth-graders who aspire to be part of the Evergreen Children’s Chorale.

    The chorus’ members sing and dance come rain or shine. This fall is no different. The Prelude will perform “Garden Variety — A Song for All Seasons,” a revue that is sure to warm your heart on even the chilliest of days.
