WITH JOLENE SINGER

Bees and humans are deeply interdependent. Without bees, we would lose over a third of our food supply, and they need us too!  Join Jolene Singer for a look at our interconnections with the honeybee:  their amazing gifts to us and how we can support them in their struggle to survive. Jolene will present the basics on how to start beekeeping. Not a fan of beekeeping? Learn how to support and be a guardian for these important pollinators in other ways.

Sopris Theatre Company presents “The Miracle Worker” @ CMC in Spring Valley
Oct 16 @ 7:00 pm

thumbnail of The Miracle Worker production posterThe Miracle Worker dramatizes the volatile relationship between the lonely teacher and her charge. Trapped in a secret, silent world, unable to communicate, Helen is violent, spoiled, almost sub-human and treated by her family as such. Only Annie realizes that there is a mind and spirit waiting to be rescued from the dark, tortured silence. With scenes of intense physical and emotional dynamism, Annie’s success with Helen finally comes with the utterance of a single, glorious word: “water”.  Samuel French

Curtain is 7 p.m. on Oct. 16-17 and 22-24, and 2 p.m. on Oct. 18 and 25, at the New Space Theatre at Colorado Mountain College in Glenwood Springs-Spring Valley, 3000 County Road 114.

WITH JASON EVITT & KATE MCCOLLUM

Wolves are one of the most misunderstood and persecuted animals, but there is more to their story. Wolves affect ecosystems in a variety of ways and have the ability to help restore balance and sustainability to the landscapes of Colorado. Many studies have been done about wolves over the last twenty years revealing their family structure to be paramount in maintaining their influence as a keystone species. Studies have also established proven methods for livestock producers to better coexist with wolves. By explaining the bigger picture of wolves in their historic ecosystems we hope to impart the importance of restoring wolves to Colorado’s wilderness.

Sopris Theatre Company presents “The Real Inspector Hound” @ CMC in Spring Valley
Nov 27 @ 7:00 pm

Poster thumbnail of The Real Inspector HoundFeuding theatre critics Moon and Birdfoot, the first a fusty philanderer and the second a pompous and vindictive second stringer, are swept into the whodunit they are viewing. In the hilarious spoof of Agatha Christie-like melodramas that follows, the body under the sofa proves to be the missing first string critic. As mists rise about isolated Muldoon Manor, Moon and Birdfoot become dangerously implicated in the lethal activities of an escaped madman. Samuel French

Curtain is 7 p.m. on Nov. 27-28 and Dec. 3-5, and 2 p.m. on Nov. 29 and Dec. 6, at the New Space Theatre at Colorado Mountain College in Glenwood Springs-Spring Valley, 3000 County Road 114.

Sopris Theatre Company presents “Anton in Show Business” @ CMC in Spring Valley
Feb 19 @ 7:00 pm

Poster image of Anton in Show BusinessThis madcap comedy follows three actresses across the footlights, down the rabbit hole and into a strangely familiar Wonderland that looks a lot like American theatre the resemblance is uncanny! As these women pursue their dream of performing Chekhov in Texas, they’re whisked through a maelstrom of “good ideas” that offer unique solutions to the Three Sister’s need to have life’s deeper purpose revealed. In the tradition of great backstage comedies, Anton in Show Business conveys the joys, pains and absurdities of “putting on a play” at the turn of the century. Samuel French

Curtain is 7 p.m. on Feb. 19-20 and 25-27, and 2 p.m. on Nov. 21 and 28, at the New Space Theatre at Colorado Mountain College in Glenwood Springs-Spring Valley, 3000 County Road 114.
