A more natural approach to new urbanism.

New urbanism doesn’t always mean lots of concrete and no backyards. At RidgeGate, it means walkable shopping, dining, and cultural venues. Plus over 1,000 acres dedicated to preserved natural open space. Six new neighborhoods are coming to life with a variety of home options. Naturally, we’d love for you to come visit. RidgeGate is just south of Lincoln Avenue in Lone Tree.

John Denver Holiday Concert, 2012

A Tribute to John "We wanted to do a show like John would have done." It’s a bit unnerving at first to talk to Dan Wheetman about John Denver. Such a monumental and iconic figure, just called “John.” Dan has been writing and performing music for decades; his career spans from a teenage rebellion rock and roll band to a current day concert tour through Portugal, but his ten years in the John Denver band were a transformative experience. Largely made up of members of The Wrecking Crew (the anonymous studio band heard on nearly all the top hits of the 1960s), Dan was at first intimidated and awestruck by his bandmates. “My musical education was working with those guys,” he says of their first tour together.

14

L O N E TT R E E A R T S C E N T E R


But it wasn’t all work for this group of talent—no, Dan tells stories of the time Top Gun came out and John rented an entire theater for the band to go see it together. Or of taking turns getting rides from John in the bi-plane during breaks in the tour. It’s easy to tell this group cared for each other and John was the central point of that ad hoc family. “He was a really, really great guy. Smart and funny.” Another creative who has had a profound impact on Dan’s life is playwright and director Randal Myler. After meeting in Denver and working together as director and musical director, the pair found a creative rhythm that has led to writing eight different musicals, one of which (Ain’t Nothin’ But the Blues) earned them each a Tony nomination.

John Denver Holiday Concert, 2012

While he’s humble about his musical skills, it’s easy to see how he ended up playing and collaborating with John Denver. The pair met through mutual friends in Aspen in the early 1970s. They shared a similar music aesthetic and became friends over the years. In 1975, Dan’s band went on tour with John Denver as the opening act and was soon signed as the first band on John Denver’s label. Then in 1977, Dan stepped into the Denver band itself, playing mostly mandolin and fiddle. Over the next ten years, Dan worked on all of John Denver’s tours and studio albums, even penning the song that Kermit the Frog and John sang together for a TV special. They enjoyed a friendship and collaboration along with the other musicians. John would come into the studio with a new song, simply the lyrics and guitar charts, and the band would play it through a number of times, testing out different arrangements and pitching ideas for beefing up the music in one section or smoothing it out in another.

After working on a very “Broadway-like” version of a John Denver show, Randal had the idea to do a stripped-down holiday performance of John’s songs that was reminiscent of John’s Christmas specials. As Dan had performed in a couple of those TV specials, the pair found magic in their collaboration. Both men will tell you they wanted to “focus on what John was” and have the show be “anchored in family and the season.” Weaving personal stories and memories in amongst John’s most popular tunes, they created a true tribute to the man Dan called friend. There is truly something special that comes from a personal bond to the music and the singer, and this holiday season we hope you’ll come see Dan, who plays six instruments in the performance, along with all the other exceptional musicians harken back to those classic TV specials in John Denver Holiday Concert.

See the John Denver Holiday Concert at LTAC December 15-20.

Big River, 2014

John Denver is known for his simple and honest music, songs that convey a feeling as well as words. Dan tells us that the goal of the band was always to ensure that “if you take the words away, the music should still have the same emotional content.”

Volunteers Make It Happen By Brenda Vitaska, LTAC Volunteer

Why do our ushers give hours/days/weeks of their time each year? To get the answer, we asked usher Brenda Vitaska: I LOVE the cultural arts! It’s part of my DNA. Yes, I could see something every day: plays, ballet, symphonies, string quartets, films, jazz, book talks, singers, comedy, rhythm, and wit. Our fifth season opened with new sparkly, sassy scarves for all LTAC women volunteers while the men received sparkly ties! This new color added energy and eagerness about the programming and the entertainment available for 2015-2016. Being part of an organization larger than myself is enjoyable and important in my third act—retirement. My husband and I have been supporters of the LTAC from the beginning, and since joining the volunteer corps in the summer of 2013, I have truly found my niche. It is gratifying to donate my time in this lovely state-of-the-art theater. Choir, concert band, and marching band began for me in fifth grade. It was my music teacher who introduced me to the French horn. The perfect instrument for me; it’s a classic! However, it was a music appreciation class my freshman year in college that was the game-changer. Studying classical music and their composers provided me with the history and background knowledge that serves me indefinitely. This background has made LTAC the perfect volunteer experience for me, combining my joy of serving with my love of the arts. As a huge fan and supporter of our regional cultural arts center, I am thrilled that we continue to grow and offer unique attractions. Excitement and enjoyment ran through my mind when National Geographic Live was scheduled for the new season. Continuing education and lifelong learning happens here; it’s a big brain booster! Additionally, our outreach serves various demographics from toddlers to adults. In particular, I am proud of our Sensory Friendly program which is collaborating and sharing on a national level. Visual arts have added a pleasant and powerful presence to the lobby. A diversity in medium and size attracts a wide variety of artists and observers. It’s amazing how seamlessly an exhibit comes down and a new one goes up. The volunteers help to make it work! The seat row numbers and letters in the theater are always the same. However, all performances are unique, sometimes unpredictable, and always professional! As the volunteers gather an hour before our guests arrive, verve and vigor soars. I often wonder what surprise awaits us. Our core value is customer service so everyone comes together as if you are a beloved guest in our home. Altruism and collegiality are additional benefits of partnering with other volunteers at the Arts Center. Making a difference is important, fun, and special. Helping others makes me happy!

Allan Harris (vocals) has reigned supreme as one of the most accomplished and exceptional singers of his generation. Aptly described by the Miami Herald as an artist blessed with “the warmth of Tony Bennett, the bite and rhythmic sense of Sinatra, and the sly elegance of Nat ‘King’ Cole,” the ample and aural evidence of Harris’ multifaceted talent can be heard on his ten recordings as a leader; his far-flung and critically-acclaimed concerts around the world, from Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York, and Washington DC’s Kennedy Center, to the 2012 London Olympics, and a number of prestigious bookings in Europe, the Middle East and Asia, and his numerous awards, which include the New York Nightlife Award for “Outstanding Jazz Vocalist”–which he won three times– the Backstage Bistro Award for “Ongoing Achievement in Jazz,” and the Harlem Speaks “Jazz Museum of Harlem Award.” Harris has also won the Downbeat Critics Poll Award for “2015 Rising Star Jazz Vocalist” and New York Hot House Jazz named him “Best Male Jazz Vocalist of 2015.” His latest album, Black Bar Jukebox, was released on January 15 and was produced by Grammy® Award-winning producer Brian Bacchus (Norah Jones, Gregory Porter). Dylan Shamat (bass) is a bassist, composer and educator based in New York City. Shamat was born and raised in St. Paul, Minn. where he began his musical studies on the violin at the age of four. He moved to New York in 2005 where he studied at the Manhattan School of Music and The Juilliard School. In 2010, he was selected to participate in the Jazz Aspen Snowmass Summer Academy to learn from jazz greats Christian McBride, Dianne Reeves, Russell Malone and Terrence Blanchard. Shamat enjoys playing a variety of styles in countless venues across the United States and in Europe. Some of his teachers have included James Clute, David Grossman, Jay Anderson and Larry Ridley. He can be found performing in New York with Lea Delaria, Allan Harris, Cyrille Aimee and countless others as well as in the off Broadway production Sleep No More.

Pascal Le Boeuf (piano) is described as “sleek, new” and “hyper-fluent” by The New York Times. He is a pianist-composer and electronic artist whose interests range from modern improvised music to cross-breeding classical with production-based technology. Le Boeuf’s most recent awards include the 2015 ASCAP Foundation Johnny Mandel Prize, a 2015 New Music USA Grant in collaboration with RighteousGIRLS, Independent Music Awards in “Jazz,” “Eclectic” and “Electronica” categories, and a 2015 New Jazz Works Commission from Chamber Music America in collaboration with JACK Quartet. Le Boeuf composed music for the 2008 Emmy® Awardwinning movie King Lines, and won first place in the 2008 International Songwriting Competition. He performs and records regularly with the piano trio Pascal’s Triangle featuring bassist Linda Oh, and drummer Justin Brown. As a keyboardist, he has opened for Dangelo (Black Messiah ‘15 tour), the British electronic group Clean Bandit (Rather Be ‘15 tour), and regularly performs with the Harlem-based jazz vocalist Allan Harris. Le Boeuf is currently pursuing a doctorate in music composition at Princeton University as a Naumburg Doctoral Fellow. Peter Kronreif (drums) was born and raised in Salzburg, Austria, where he discovered his passion for the drum set in early childhood. He has performed with John Medeski, Jaleel Shaw, Ben Monder, Nir Felder, Remy & Pascal LeBoeuf, Ricky Rodriguez, Nate Wood, John Ellis, Harry Sokal, Linda Oh, Martin Reiter, Matthieu Michel, Johannes Enders, Sammy Nestico, Alegre Correa, Bastian Stein, Matt Davis, Peter Herbert, Subtone, Christoph Cech, Wolfgang Muthspiel, Robin Verheyen, Fabio Hess, Ana Paola DaSilva, Janus Ensemble, ProBrass, Peter O’Mara. He has toured the U.S., Canada, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, England, Norway, Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia, Romania, Croatia, Serbia, Greece, Ukraine, Israel, Palestine, China, and Senegal.


Jesse Jones Jr (alto sax) has been a professional musician since the mid-1960s, but he did not have his first opportunity to lead his own record date until he was 52. When he was in the sixth grade, Jones was given a c-melody saxophone by his mother and he quickly learned the instrument, being completely selftaught. While in eighth grade he also learned to play bassoon and soon switched to alto sax. After graduating from Mississippi Valley State College, he spent part of his four years in the Navy playing with a large show band. Jones lived in Boston for two years in the early 1970s

and then returned to Miami where he has since been a major part of the city’s jazz scene. With his younger brother, trumpeter Melton Mustafa, Jones started the Melt-Jess Jazz Quintet. After Mustafa joined Count Basie, Jones (who also plays with his brother’s big band) formed his own quartet. Jones, who considers his biggest influences to be Cannonball Adderley, Hank Crawford and Paul Desmond, recorded Soul Serenade for Contemporary in 1996. He has been playing with Allan Harris for the past 20 years.

Who is...

The 39 Steps, 2015

JEN KISER

Look on the stage! Do you see anything? Great! Then you know who Jen Kiser is—the one who makes things visible! A fantastic lighting designer, Jen perfectly marries organization and creativity to unlock breathtaking views. Jen has been involved with theater since the ripe age of four, when she played a lion in the school play. She credits her parents with fostering a love for theater early, taking her to Denver to see shows and watching movie musicals at home in Greeley. Her high school English teacher was also a fundamental force when she first assigned Beckett’s Waiting for Godot to the class as a reading project. Jen was instantly hooked.

and design approach work well within the mentality that “we create what is most appropriate for the moment, not just create something with the coolest toy we have to use.” When Jen begins a new design project, her first step is to read the script and talk with the director about his/her vison for the show. Once she has worked out the basics like location, time of day, and the overall mood of the production, she jumps into what she calls “the fun details:” practicals (like lamps that actually work onstage), windows, and effects. While it’s easy to imagine the lighting designer as a wildly artistic person infusing color and flash whenever they can, the reality is that a good bit of the work is organizational paperwork. Jen has to create a light plot to show where the lights will be hung as well as a magic sheet to show what part of the stage they will be lighting. Add to that a series of spreadsheets, and looking over her shoulder at work, you might think she’s an engineer.

She attended college at Colorado College where she majored in Drama and was granted an apprenticeship at Goodspeed Musicals in Connecticut after graduation. Jen spent 11 years in Connecticut and New York, working at various theaters and even doing a stint on Broadway with By Jeeves. It was during this time that she got to fulfill a childhood dream; she served as Master Electrician for a Jim Henson show, Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas. To this day, Jen says it’s her favorite show she’s ever worked on (although she laughs as she admits it): “It was a Jim Henson show!”

Once all the prep work is in place, Jen and her crew hang, then focus the lights (a tedious process)—all before one actor or prop gets lit up on-stage. For Jen, lighting design was a natural fit; it allows her to use both her left and right brain as she thrives on creativity, but also organization.

Her love of Colorado, the mountains, and–of course—her family, brought her back to Denver and, ultimately, to LTAC. Jen is not only the Lighting Designer of most LTAC shows, but is also our Assistant Technical Director and the writer of our Theater Trivia page at the back of this (and every) program! Jen says she “feels very lucky” to have landed at a place that retains such a high commitment to quality. Her “old school” aesthetic

Christine Ebersole Coming to LTAC January 21, 2016

“I moved from Hollywood to Maplewood. What a difference a leaf makes!” Christine Ebersole, a two-time Tony Award winning actress, fled the sandy beaches of California for the appeal of Broadway after her agent told her she was growing too old. Since the move, Christine has procured both of her Tony Awards as well as many other awards. After receiving her second Tony Award in 2007 for her dual role as both Edith Bouvier Beale and “Little Edie” Beale in Grey Gardens she said, “I left Hollywood when they told me I was over the hill and now I’m standing here with this most distinguished award for what I consider to be the role of a lifetime.” Born and raised in Winnetka, Illinois, Ebersole began singing and acting after attending a summer drama class while in high school. She briefly attended MacMurray College before deciding to pursue her love for the performing arts at a different institution, the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. Upon her graduation in 1975, her first job was as an understudy for the Broadway musical On the Twentieth Century, followed by her role as Ado Annie in Oklahoma. After performing very well in her first few roles, the big screen turned its attention towards her. She consented to join the cast of Ryan’s Hope from 1977 until 1980 followed by a one year stint on Saturday Night Live from 1981 to 1982. After nearly 10 years of focus on the big screen, however, Ebersole found that she was having to audition for

roles that were once offered to her; she knew it was time for a change. The move across the country to Maplewood, New Jersey reenergized her career. Her following stage performances propelled her to new heights earning Christine her first Tony Award in 2001 for her performance in 42nd Street. Hot on the heels of her win, Christine was nominated for another Tony and an Outer Critics Circle award in 2002 for her performance in Dinner at Eight. Then in 2007, she recaptured the Tony Award. She delighted audiences with her performance in the criticallyacclaimed Grey Gardens. Today, Ebersole is just as active as ever. She tours the country performing many cabaret shows and makes guest appearances on TV, holding recurring roles in Royal Pains and Sullivan and Son. She also continues to act in movies, most recently appearing in The Wolf of Wall Street alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in 2013. Her most recent project, Big Noise from Winnetka, has been performed at the famous 54 Below in New York City. The show contains everything from rock and roll and gospel to the songs that helped her win her second Tony Award from Grey Gardens. The show has received wonderful reviews from the New York Times and others. The show will make its way to the Lone Tree Arts Center on January 21, 2016. Ebersole still resides in Maplewood, New Jersey with her husband, three teenage children, two cats, two dogs, and a bird. For more information, visit christineebersole.com.

Making a Difference Close to Home Each year since 1988, the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD) has distributed millions of dollars to over 300 arts organizations. It is staggering to think of the difference this has made in the cultural landscape of the entire metro area, but how has it impacted things close to home? Close to you? If you’re reading this program, you’ve already been impacted. In this year alone, LTAC will receive more than $280,000 in funding from SCFD (which accounts for nearly 10 percent of our annual operating budget). Clearly, LTAC is able to do more of what you love because of SCFD’s presence in our region. LTAC is a Tier II organization, meaning we have a regional impact and an operating budget that exceeds a threshold set each year (this year, $1.556 million). There are 28 Tier II organizations, including groups you may have also attended, like Parker Arts, Colorado Ballet, and the Arvada Center. Organizations that are smaller in budget size or scope of programming fall into Tier III. Funding for these groups is determined on a county-by-county basis as they serve a more limited audience. Many organizations receive funds in multiple counties if, for example, they perform at venues throughout the metro area. This year, Douglas and Arapahoe Counties distributed over $2.16 million through SCFD. You might be familiar with organizations such as Wonderbound, Lone Tree Symphony Orchestra, or the Denver Concert Band that all received funding here in Douglas County. Perhaps the most tangible benefit you feel of the SCFD's impact these last 27 years of funding is in our large regional cultural institutions. If you’ve ever been to the Denver Zoo, Denver Museum of Nature and Science, Denver Art Museum, Denver Botanic Gardens, or the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, you’ve benefited from SCFD. In addition to the free days SCFD allows for these organizations to provide, SCFD shores up critical core support for these touchstones of our community. To paraphrase Lone Tree Mayor Jim Gunning, these Tier I organizations are like Denver International Airport; regional assets which are completely critical to ensuring the whole Denver Metro area thrives. While smaller airports (and arts organizations) provide much more focused services, they cannot alone meet the needs of our vibrant landscape. Last year alone, the five Tier I organizations served over 1.2 million people from Douglas and Arapahoe Counties. It is impossible to quantify the economic and cultural impact these organizations have had on our region and that is all possible thanks to SCFD. We would not be the cultural hub we are today were it not for this revolutionary idea to give critical funding to arts and cultural organizations. The SCFD is a voter-approved one cent on every $10 sales and use tax in the seven-county District. Counties comprising the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District include Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas (except for Castle Rock and Larkspur) and Jefferson. The SCFD will be up for reauthorization in the 2016 election.

Theater Trivia

How do stage directions work? a) Right and left are based off of the actors’ perspective b) Right and left are based off of the perspective of the audience

What is a ballyhoo?

c) Right and left vary, depending on where you are working

a) A type of fish

d) Right and left are physical instructions for the actors that are written into the script

c) A rock band

ANSWER: c) The director of a play typically faces

the actors as scenes are being rehearsed, as the audience will. As you might imagine, without a clear understanding of terminology, this could lead to a great deal of confusion regarding physical movements when staging a show. In the US we use the most common terminology: “stage left” and “stage right” refer to the perspective of the performers. If we are talking about audience perspective, we use the terms “house left” and “house right.” However, there are some differences internationally. In the UK, directions are still given from the actors’ perspective, but they are referred to as “prompt” (stage left) and “off-prompt” (stage right). In Germany, the directions are reversed, and are referred to from the perspective of the audience. In film, directions are actually from the point of view of the camera—“camera left” and “camera right.” "Stage directions” can also refer to instructions written into the script itself, as the playwright suggests what physical actions should be happening onstage. One of the more infamous stage directions is Shakespeare’s “Exit, pursued by a bear,” from The Winter’s Tale.

Where in the theater do we find the fly gallery? a) At the ceiling, directly over the stage b) At the ceiling, directly over the audience c) It is another name for the control booth d) Offstage, near the rigging system

ANSWER: d) The fly gallery is an area in the

offstage wings of the stage, and typically at or near the height of the proscenium opening. It is generally accessible by a catwalk, and from here, the stage crew can operate the rigging system.

38

At LTAC, we operate our fly system from ground level. However, our fly galleries are used when we need to run cable for the lighting or sound systems from above the stage, or when we are rigging particularly tricky scenery.

b) A movement made by followspot operators d) A loud clamor or outcry

ANSWER: All of the above. But of course in this case we are referring to b). Ballyhoo is the term used for followspot operators moving their spotlight in a figure-eight pattern. Most often, you see this move performed by a pair of followspot operators moving their lights in opposite and overlapping directions. It is a classic move that is often used at the beginning of shows or movies to increase excitement and anticipation.

What is blocking? a) Planning the staging and movements of the cast b) Dividing the script into smaller segments that are easier to rehearse c) Drawing a scaled floor plan of the set d) Building a rough model of the set out of simplified elements

ANSWER: a) The term “blocking” was developed

by Sir W.S. Gilbert (of the famed duo Gilbert and Sullivan), who planned out scenes prior to rehearsal by using tiny blocks to represent each actor. During a blocking rehearsal, the movements of the performers are precisely worked out with the director. Telling the story and conveying the emotions of the scene are obviously primary goals, but other factors must be considered, such as whether or not the audience can see the actors, how the actors will get on and off the stage, where scenery will be located, how the scene needs to be lit, etc. Blocking is a true collaborative effort—it is important that it works for all, and remains consistent for each performance, as so many other elements of the show are designed around it.
