A chance to stomp your feet with Foote

BRECKENRIDGE – The town presents the second in its Kidz Calliope series 2 p.m. Tuesday at the Riverwalk Center with award-winning entertainer Norman Foote.

Foote is known to delight audiences young and old with clever songs, outrageous props and off-beat sense of humor.

Foote has received international acclaim for his song writing and stage show.

What makes Foote and his concerts different is his ability to find subject matter that challenges and engages his audience.

He puts his theatrical and comedic talents to use as he weaves stories and paints musical imagery that audiences respond to immediately. 

Foote’s adaptation of nursery rhymes sung by rock stars is a routine that defines his talent for bridging the generation gap.  His claim to fame is his “props with an attitude.” These characters enter the stage as inanimate objects and with the element of surprise and improvisation come to life, never failing to bring the house down with laughter and applause.

All tickets are $5, with group rates of $4 for 10 or more. For tickets and information call the Riverwalk Center Box Office at (970) 547-3100, or visit http://www.townofbreckenridge.com and select Riverwalk Center. 

Historical speaker event explores time before Gold Rush

BRECKENRIDGE – Dilapidated mines scattered around Summit County are quiet reminders of the area’s rich mining history; but what happened here before the Gold Rush?

Published author and professor Bob McCracken is the featured speaker at tonight, at the second of a six-part historical speaker series hosted by the Summit Historical Society and Colorado Mountain College. McCracken will take his audiences into the time that preceded what most people think of as Summit County’s history – the time before the Gold Rush. Come learn about the Utes and their predecessors who lived in Summit County before the mining began.

The event starts at 7 p.m. today at the Carter Museum in Breckenridge. The speaker series is free and open to the public, though donations to the Summit Historical Society are welcome.
