Cinco de Mayo Festival | May 5 & 6

Apr 22, 2018

The Cinco de Mayo “Celebrate Culture” Festival is produced by NEWSED Community Development Corporation who is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization. Through our programming we conduct economic development in poor communities and provide affordable housing opportunities to low and moderate income families and individuals. In addition, we promote business development throughout the city of Denver. Established in 1973, NEWSED’s mission is “to promote and develop economic, community programs and projects that raise the income, educational and political levels of Denver residents”.

When it all started, many in the jazz world must have thought, “That Colorado altitude has taken its toll on those guys. Start a traditional jazz festival in this era?”

But a small group of dedicated jazz-lovers did just that, and to the amazement of many, this July we present the seventeenth rendition of the Evergreen Jazz Festival. It promises to be another outstanding event, living up to the enthusiastic description from a national columnist as “the best jazz festival anywhere!”

This stunning masterpiece merges past and present into beautiful, poignant truths about life, love and the creation of art. The story spanning over a century begins in 1884 with George Seurat who is struggling to balance his extreme natural tendencies of artistic sensitivity and logical construction. Then story skips ahead, a century later, to Seurat's great-grandson, George who is also an artist. Present-day George is frustrated as he searches for his artistic path only to find the answer to his future is in the past.

Passing Strange

Apr 17, 2018

Tony Award-winning “Passing Strange” is a moving, fast-paced rock musical about a young boy’s journey of self-discovery through Europe. From a comfortable middle class Baptist upbringing, the young protagonist rejects the comforts of home and travels on a picaresque journey through Amsterdam and Berlin to find “the real”. Complicated by his need to rebel against his mother and society, he finds himself “passing” through place to place and from lover to lover, only to find out that “the real” that he’d been searching for would come at great cost.
