Community players moving
The Steamboat Community Players will be moving this weekend, leaving Seventh Street Playhouse, its home for more than 15 years. They will be moving to the first floor of Monson Hall on the Colorado Mountain College-Alpine Campus.
When the Players first settled at the Seventh Street Playhouse, the Steamboat Springs School District charged $500 a year for the space. Over the years, the rent has increased to $500 a month, said Players president Nina Rogers. It has become impossible for the theater company to survive on ticket sales because of the overhead, she said.
SCP is looking for volunteers to help with the move, which will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. Many props will be on sale.
Their next production, “Twelve Angry Men,” will be staged in November at Monson Hall. Steamboat Community Players can be reached at 879-3254.
Program seeks furniture
Stepping Stones, a transition program for young adults (18 to 21) with developmental disabilities, is in need of donations for its mock apartment classroom. It needs bedroom furniture, work tables, a portable dishwasher, VCR and other household items. Call Paula Lotz at 846-6648.
Friday Films continues
The free Friday Film series continues tonight with “Baraka” (1992, USA, directed by Ron Fricke). “Baraka” was shot in 70mm documentary style, taking a wordless musical tour around the globe. The film begins at 7 p.m. at Centennial Hall, 124 10th St. Call 879-9008.
in film class
There is space available for the “Language of Film” course being taught by producer Dori Weiss and director Chris Nyby, sponsored by the Steamboat Springs Arts Council. The 10-week course is a lesson on all aspects of filmmaking. The course costs $250 for all 10 classes or $35 per class. The course will be held in the private room above Harwigs, 911 Lincoln Ave. Call 879-9008.
Artisans raise LIFT-UP money
The Steamboat Clay Artisans raised $7,540 for LIFT-UP of Routt County with this year’s Soup Bowl Supper.
For the event, 24 members of the Steamboat Clay Artisans and a dozen volunteers helped make and decorate the bowls. They fired about two-thirds of the bowls at Ceramic Design Group and the other third at Blue Sky Pottery.
They created 340 soup bowls and other items, including casserole dishes, mugs, tumblers and vases for the silent auction. The SCA and its members put in about 500 hours of work to create this year’s event.
Next year the Steamboat Clay Artisans will allow other nonprofits in the community to submit a letter of interest if they would like to be the recipient of the Soup Bowl Supper fund-raiser.
The SCA will hold a two-day pottery sale at the Depot on Oct. 18 and 19. A portion of each potter’s sale will go to offset the expense of the Soup Bowl Supper.
The short film, “Honor and Defeat,” filmed in Steamboat Springs by Luke Seven, won two awards in August at the Films UP! International Film Festival in Huntington Beach, Calif. The film received awards in the category of Best Actor and Best Actress.
Arts Council seeks artists
The Steamboat Springs Arts Council is accepting applications from Colorado artists for a one-person or small group show at the Eleanor Bliss Center for the Arts at the Depot. Exhibit dates are Feb. 13 to March 21.
E-mail email@example.com or call 879-9008 for entry guidelines. Proposals are due by Oct. 1.
The exhibits “A Century of Valley Vows: A Community Exhibit” and “Foundations of Steamboat: The Gossard Family” are on display at the Tread of Pioneers Museum. The exhibit traces the traditions, people and attire from weddings in Routt County during the past century.
