‘Big Water, Little Boats’ author Tom Martin talks at CMC in Carbondale

Author Tom Martin will appear to talk about his book, “Big Water, Little Boats.” Preceding the event is a panel discussion about the Colorado Water Plan.

Tom Martin, author of “Big Water, Little Boats,” a history of river-running on the Colorado River from the 1940s and ’50s, will speak at 7 p.m. April 10 at Colorado Mountain College in Carbondale.

The program features original photographs from various Grand Canyon river trips over several decades, including Boulder Narrows at 126,000 cubic feet per second in 1957. The presentation tells how Moulty Fulmer happened upon the McKenzie River hull design of today’s Pacific Northwest boats, and how he used that design to build his boat the Gem, Grand Canyon’s first decked dory.

Martin will also touch on the building of a full-sized replica of the Gem and taking the replica through the Grand Canyon. He will show photo rematching of original pictures from the 1940s and 1950s river trips. The program will be followed by a book signing.

Carbondale talk includes panel discussion on Colorado Water Plan

Preceding the talk is a panel discussion on the Colorado Water Plan: a comprehensive, statewide plan being created this year in response to Gov. Hickenlooper’s executive order to figure out how to allocate, over the decades to come, our state’s rapidly dwindling water resources.

A diverse panel of water experts and enthusiasts – including CMC sustainability studies instructors Sandy Jackson and Ken Neubecker, CMC sustainability studies student Jeremy Isenhart and author Martin – will discuss the plan from a variety of perspectives, including agriculture, river ecology, recreation and land use.

After hearing from each panelist, the audience will be invited to provide input that will be gathered by panel moderator Louis Meyer (president, CEO and civil engineer at SGM) and integrated into the portion of the plan focused on the Colorado River Basin.

Following the panel discussion Martin will present on his book, “Big Water, Little Boats,” and will sign copies of his fascinating look at this mighty river.

More information is available at BigWaterLittleBoats.com. For more about the Colorado Water Plan, go to coloradowaterplan.com.

These events are free and open to the community.

‘A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum’ continues for final weekend of performances at CMC Theatre

The Colorado Mountain College Theatre 2013-14 season is set to end on a high note with the crowd-pleasing musical comedy “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.”

A playful spin on the classic Vaudeville opening line, “A funny thing happened on the way to the theater,” this raucous musical follows the escapades of a Roman slave, Pseudolus, as he desperately seeks citizenship. Misplaced affections, mistaken identities and mixed motives drive a zany cast of characters into absurd mishaps that result in sublime comedy.

Stephen Sondheim composed the music and lyrics, with Bert Shevelove and Larry Gelbart as librettists. The original cast starred Zero Mostel and opened on Broadway in 1962. The show has enjoyed two revivals, including the Tony-winning 1996 production that earned Nathan Lane a “Best Actor in a Musical” award.

CMC Theatre’s production of “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” is directed by Gary Ketzenbarger and stars CMC Theatre adjunct instructor Brad Moore as Pseudolus. Performances are April 4-5 and 10-12 at 7 p.m., with matinees April 6 and 13 at 2 p.m., in the New Space Theatre at Colorado Mountain College in Spring Valley. Viewers are cautioned that the show contains bawdy humor that may not be appropriate for young children.

Tickets can be reserved now at svticketsales@coloradomtn.edu or 947-8177. Admission to “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” is $20 for adults and $15 for students, seniors, staff and faculty.
