Sound of Music MAC logo

The hills of Northern Colorado are alive with music this spring, because Midtown Art Center has “The Sound of Music” on their main stage. Colorado is lucky to have a collection of fine dinner theaters, and MAC is the only one located in Fort Collins. As a reminder, your ticket at this establishment includes dinner plus the show, and this all-in-one evening of entertainment is why dinner theater is a

Anything Goes at Candlelight 1

You don’t have to travel to New York City’s Broadway to see this Tony Award winning musical because it’s now playing at the Candlelight in Johnstown, Colorado. You know it’s got to be a great musical when it’s still being produced 78-years after it was written, and Cole Porter’s “Anything Goes” is just that. We started our evening by ordering the baked Brie. Served with a side of chutney, almonds

Avenue Q at Midtown Arts Center

The transcripts from my radio segment on KRFC 88.9 FM, usually get posted on Thursdays, but due to a writing scheduling conflict this week, I’m switching things up.

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!

Tony n' Tina tie the knot at MidTown Arts Center in Fort Collins, Colorado - an interactive theater review

As the summer festival season slows and we get closer to the holidays, you’ll start seeing new theater reviews here at HeidiTown.com. I truly believe theater – especially dinner theater – is an event and while theater is available year round in Colorado, I start getting back into the scene during the fall and winter. Last week I was a guest at Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding, held at the Midtown

Estes Park, Colorado bridge

Tomorrow I will stand beside a very good friend as she ties the knot in Estes Park, Colorado. She has had a longtime love affair with the town; she and her fiance had their first date there, got engaged there and will now be married there. So I thought this was the ideal week to post an article about the town of Estes Park. As you’ll discover, I’ve had mixed

Big River, the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

Huck Finn has made his way to the Candlelight Dinner Playhouse and has been welcomed with open arms. “Big River, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,” originally performed on Broadway in the late 1980s, opened at Candlelight on Father’s Day. When I came to the Candlelight for “The King & I,” the actors had a lot to live up to – and they did -but I had no such expectations for
