  • ‘Tommy’ turns arts center into visual, audio feast

    Violent strobes of color, energized dance and a backdrop of renowned psychedelic rock saturate the senses in the Littleton Town Hall Arts Center’s production of “Tommy,” a nearly overwhelming contrast to the title character’s catatonic state.

  • Photographers point lenses locally and globally

    Littleton’s annual Eye of the Camera contest drew photos from as near as Ketring Lake and as far as Azerbaijan.

  • Town Hall Arts Center receives grant

    The board of directors for the Littleton Town Hall Arts Center announced that the organization has received a grant of $10,000 from Colorado Creative Industries and the National Endowment for the Arts.

  • Event highlights Lariat Loop’s artistic inspirations

    For as long as there have been cars trusty enough to chug up the mountains, artists have ventured around the Lariat Loop hoping to capture that elusive sunset reflecting in Bear Creek or the first aspen turning to gold near Buffalo Bill’s grave.

    The Lariat Loop is a 40-mile scenic circle developed in the 1920s to help Coloradans experience the mountains in proximity to Denver. To celebrate the anniversary of the Loop’s designation as a National Scenic Byway, on Oct. 17 the Loop’s Heritage Alliance will host the Lariat Loop Art Bistro.

  • 'Into the Woods' offers a forest of fun

    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.

  • Bra art exhibit supports double-threat fund-raiser

    “Psst…your bra strap is showing,” you whisper to your neighbor. Then you realize, that’s not an ordinary bra strap.

    You finally find the nerve to ask your friend why she has a black feather boa holding up her over-the-shoulder boulder holder. “Why, it’s to support my Purr-fect Pair,” she replies with a wink.

  • Miners Alley production keeps it all in the family

    Miners Alley Playhouse in Golden is a family affair.

    Husband-and-wife team Rick Bernstein and Paige Larson act, direct, teach and are the backbone of this small yet impressive theater company. The actors, too, are no different — a small family that reunites show after show to produce hilarious and heartfelt theater.

    It’s no surprise, given all of this familial sentiment, that Miners Alley’s newest show deals with the trials and tribulations of quirky, close-knit family.

  • Two plays deliver with substance on stage

    In today’s media, we are constantly bombarded with red-carpet shots of celebrities arriving for world premieres. Oftentimes, the pomp and circumstance are greater than the quality of the show contained within.

    In the case of the Denver Center Theater Company, the reverse is true. January is New Play Month at the Denver Center, and two new works for the stage, “Inana” and “Dusty and Big Bad World,” have premiered in recent weeks. What they lack in spectacle outside the theater, they more than make up for in substance on stage.

  • ‘Jersey Boys’ a trip down Memory Turnpike

    “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.
