Today's Features

  • I met Bill Weisenborn well over a decade ago when, after hearing AT HOME in Evergreen Inc., the affordable housing initiative, present to the Pathfinders group, Bill elected to join the AT HOME board.

    It wasn’t until very recently that I discovered just how active he is in our community. In addition to Pathfinders, he sits on the Evergreen Christian Outreach board, mentors a public school student in the “Leaping into Literacy” program and is a regular church attendee. 

  • Youth art show at Shadow Mountain Gallery

    Elementary school artwork will be on display at Shadow Mountain Gallery in March in honor of National Youth Art Month.

    The show will feature 90 pieces of artwork from students at The Bergens, Carlson, Elk Creek, King-Murphy, Marshdale, Parmalee and Wilmot elementary schools. The pieces are chosen by each school’s art teachers.

  • Two area organizations are working to providing a community for retirees in the foothills.

    Conifer Newcomers & Neighbors and Evergreen Newcomers and Neighbors — both with members ranging in age from the 30s to 80s — tend to attract those 55 and older, creating a network of friendships and activities.

    The groups are part social clubs, part networking, part support. They are places where area residents can meet others. Contrary to their names, both groups are more about neighbors getting together no matter how long they have lived in the foothills.

  • About 50 Evergreen Middle School boys learned how to fight on Friday — stage fighting, that is.

    The boys are the cast of “Newsies,” and they were preparing for the fight scenes in the show. André Rodriguez, a teaching artist at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, spent the morning teaching them to hit each other and to fall, so that it looked realistic. And it did.

  • 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.

  • 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 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 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
