  • Venue Theatre’s youngest actors look at the animal kingdom, environment

    Young thespians will take to the Venue Theatre stage April 20-22 to show off their acting and singing skills.
    Kindergartners through second-graders will perform a 20-minute show called “Big Beautiful Planet,” a compilation of songs by Raffi that talk about the importance of protecting the planet.
    That will be followed by “Lion King Jr.,” based on the 1994 movie about a lion cub named Simba and his adventures with lioness Nala, meerkat Timon and warthog Pumbaa.

  • Evergreen Players honors the community

    Recently, I sat down with three caring and determined ladies responsible for a great deal of Evergreen Players’ continuous success. I have personal history with the Players and remain enlivened by its impeccable standards and the strides it has made over the years.

  • The Well at Bradford Junction is welcomed shadow of the past

    The Well at Bradford Junction in Conifer, once Grow Your Own, continues to bloom with new and old customers in uplifting surroundings that shadow the past.
    With intentions to support the community, The Well was opened with a music venue in mind, and so far it hasn’t detoured from that original notion.
    This neighborhood bar maintains an open door seven days a week with guest performers appearing regularly. Wednesday night is open mic night and has gained tremendous popularity since the opening in February 2016.

  • StageDoor Kids tell about the circle of life in ‘The Lion King Kids’

    StageDoor Theatre presents “The Lion King Kids” beginning Thursday and running for eight performances.
    This time the musical is comprised of two casts, each with second- to fifth-grade students. The Mimics and the Troupers each perform four shows.
    It was June of 1994 when Walt Disney first released “The Lion King.” Critics heralded it from the start and praised it for its music, story and animation. The film won two Academy Awards for its music and a Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture.

  • Evergreen Chorale presents ‘Company’

    This Friday night the Evergreen Chorale presents “Company,” a landmark modern musical that explores the desire, need, vulnerability and vicissitudes of romance and relationships. “Company” opened on Broadway in 1970 and was immediately recognized as a breaker of all rules, as it has no defined conclusion, not being linear in anyway. As a matter of fact, it’s the vignettes that carry the plot and deliver the message, originally revolutionizing theatre through the combination of storytelling and song.

  • StageDoor produces magic in spoof ‘The 39 Steps’

    Conifer’s StageDoor Theatre guarantees an abundance of thrills wrapped in technical magic as it presents the hilarious spoof, “The 39 Steps.”
    The play seemingly has it all, as it tests the limits of live theater. This epic adventure tackles what some once believed could not be done on stage, including a daring escape from a moving train, a chase across the Scottish moors and even a plane crash. The cast of four is challenged by playing multiple characters throughout.

  • After-Christmas ponderings

    On Dec. 17, I was fortunate enough to take in the Evergreen Player’s adaptation of “A Christmas Carol.” The novella took the shape of a Christmas reading with six characters delivering the message.
    Unthinkable as it is, the cast and crew tore down the set from the previous show by 11:30 the night before and redesigned the stage for “A Christmas Carol” by show time at 2 p.m. Sunday.

  • Evergreen Chorale honors Christmas

    It’s Christmas time again, and nothing is more symbolic of the season than the Evergreen Chorale’s magical holiday show.
    This weekend, the chorale will present “A Ceremony of Carols: A Tapestry of Holiday Music for Choir, Harp, Piano and Flute.” Both performances will be held at churches – Central Presbyterian Church in Denver on Friday and Rockland Community Church in Genesee on Sunday — embellishing the delivery of old time carols and new.

  • StageDoor Theatre aglow with Cinderella, Christmas

    The StageDoor Theatre has the perfect venue to swing open the gates of Christmas fun and fantasy. This Friday night, the Conifer theater will begin its nine-day run with Rogers and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella.” This revised rendition of the beloved fairytale will easily engage the audience with more clever lines than ever before. This time, it’s the Senior Company, ages 14 to 18, taking the stage with a cast of 33.
    Director/playwright Kelly McAllister returns to StageDoor to direct this dazzling performance.
