Photos: “A Christmas Carol” Opening Night gallery


You know what I was thinking before the opening performance of “A Christmas Carol”? It’s too bad these kid actors are so darned shy. Clockwise from center, that’s Max Raabe (nephew, I found out last night, of longtime Denver Post reporter Steve Raabe), Sam Modesitt, Edwin Harris and Connor Nguyen Erickson.

"A Christmas Carol" is the featured opening in John Moore’s year-long 2013 photo series, “It’s Opening Night in Colorado Theatre.” The photo above is the one that will join the other 144 productions (to date) in his series.

Here is the link to his full gallery of photos from Opening Night.

Rockies owner Linda Alvarado attends opening of “Jackie & Me”

The opening performance of “Jackie & Me” is featured this morning in CultureWest.Org's year-long photo series, “It's Opening Night in Colorado Theater.” Click here to see the full series to date, which has included several Denver Center offerings. All photos by John Moore.


Linda G. Alvarado, co-owner of the Colorado Rockies baseball team, congratulates 22-year-old actor Aaron Davidson for his opening-night performance by allowing him to wear her 2007 World Series ring. Davidson, a Colorado native and graduate of the Denver School of the Arts, plays Joey Stoshack, a 12-year-old boy who is bullied because of his Polish descent. Alvarado, above left, is president and CEO of Alvarado Construction, Inc., which built Sports Authority Field at Mile High. She is also a member of the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame and was named one of the 100 Most Influential Hispanics in America by Hispanic Business Magazine. When the Rockies were awarded a franchise, Alvarado became the first Latino owner, male or female, in Major League Baseball history, and the second female owner in the big leagues.
