Two very different Christmas shows are now playing in Northern Colorado, and I have had the chance to see them.   Read my reviews and decide which one is right for your family this season. The two musicals are strikingly different, and each has strong points, so you may decide to see both. “Scrooge! The Musical” While the entire cast is talented, Brian Burron, as Scrooge, is the heart of

CONTEST CLOSED This past summer, one of the most standout events I attended was the 1940s WWII Ball.
