Coming Up

August 14, 2021: I'm very happy to say I will be once again offering a Conifer Christmas at the Venue Theatre, Sunday December 19 at 3:00. My friend Dennis Paige will be joining me on percussion and there will some songs and instruments you haven't seen before. Tickets may be purchased at the door for $10 and reserved seating may be purchased online through the Venue Theatre website . As always, every penny of ticket sales goes to the non-profits in Conifer. There will also be a non-perishable food drive for the Mountain Resource Center. We had to go online last year and this show will be recorded and offered online as well but I am grateful that the theatre can once again open its doors for this annual show. Conifer, Colorado.
