The Iron Springs Chateau presents its first show of 2018, “A Precious Bit of the West…or…She Was Simply a Delight!” which opens on Friday, February 9.

This show, written by local actor and playwright Vicki Kelly, is a side splitting western melodrama where our heroine, Precious Delight, has traveled from England with her Aunt Ima Delight to claim the Buffalo Chips ranch, which she inherited from her uncle.

The evil Ralph Rancid, though, intends for the Buffalo Chips Ranch to become part of his spread, and will stop at nothing to make sure he gets it. Can Harry Hotline, the editor of the local paper, and his best friend Grizzly Jack help Precious and her Aunt Ima stake their claim before the Buffalo Chips Ranch goes up for auction?

The melodrama is followed by a sing-along intermission and a Mardi Gras themed Vaudeville style musical revue that will keep you laughing with songs, dances, jokes and crazy costumes! It’s a blast for the whole family! The show runs through August 11.

The show is directed by Rebekah Ratterree, musical direction by Bruce Littrell and Bonnie Hausknecht, costumes by Stephanie Bradley and choreography by Daisya Dowen and Rebekah Ratterree.

The Iron Springs Chateau has been bringing family-friendly entertainment to the Pikes Peak Region for over 50 years, and is a great way to spend the evening... whether for the entire family or a memorable date night.

Friday, June 15 is opening night of the Iron Springs Chateau’s Summer and Fall production, “Disturbance at the Delta…or…Here Fishy, Fishy, Fishy”.  Written by owner, Lori Adams-Miller, this show is a hilarious southern melodrama where the evil seafood restaurateur, Led Robster, along with his beautiful accomplice Helena Handbasket, is working hard to swindle the kind and unsuspecting people of Skeeterbunk Delta. Meanwhile, the local fisherman, our stalwart hero Ken Catchem, can’t seem to catch a fish to save his life, and the lovely heroine, Clair Voyant has no catch of the day for the We Know What You Want Café. And what in the world will happen to Our Lady of Maytag church, if the annual fish fry fundraiser has to be cancelled and Father McMuffin can’t pay the church’s taxes?

The melodrama is followed by a sing-along intermission and a Flower Power themed Vaudeville style musical revue packed with songs, dances, jokes and crazy costumes!  It’s a blast for the whole family! This show runs through October 6.

 The show is directed by Lori Adams-Miller, musical direction by Bruce Littrell and Bonnie Hausknecht, costumes by Stephanie Bradley and choreography by Daisya Dowen and Rachel Gressler.

An instant classic!

"Always…Patsy Cline" is based on the touching true story affectionately told through letters written between Patsy and her biggest fan turned confidant, Louise Segar.

A genuine bond of friendship, which began over a cup of coffee, lasted until Cline’s untimely death in 1963. Told through downhome country humor, heartache, and celebration, "Always…Patsy Cline" takes audiences through the ups and downs, from her breakthrough on live radio, to her rise to fame at the Grand Ole Opry.

Featuring 27 unforgettable hits, including “Crazy,” “Walkin’ After Midnight,” “I Fall to Pieces,” and “Sweet Dreams,” this musical memory book is a glorious tribute to the one-of- a-kind sound of Patsy Cline!

The Cruise Above the Clouds Car Show was organized in 1991 by the Chamber of Commerce of Woodland Park, Colorado (20 miles northwest of Colorado Springs on Highway 24).

Only five cars were entered in the show that year. When the Chamber of Commerce withdrew from sponsoring the Car Show, the Above the Clouds Cruisers Car Club made a commitment to continue it.

The Above the Clouds Cruisers Car Club was officially organized in 1998 as a non-profit organization with a dedicated purpose of providing an annual car show for the benefit of local Colorado charities. Since that time, the event has grown to a two-day car show with 200 to 250 car participants and hundreds of spectators.

Located in the heart of Woodland Park near City Hall (Henrietta and Fairview Streets), the Cruise Above the Clouds Car Show is held annually on the third Saturday in September.

The Car Club meets at 6:30 p.m. on the first Friday of each month to plan and monitor the progress of the yearly event. Anyone with an interest in helping with the car show is invited to attend.

The Iron Springs Chateau presents its first show of 2018, “A Precious Bit of the West…or…She Was Simply a Delight!” which opens on Friday, February 9.

This show, written by local actor and playwright Vicki Kelly, is a side splitting western melodrama where our heroine, Precious Delight, has traveled from England with her Aunt Ima Delight to claim the Buffalo Chips ranch, which she inherited from her uncle.

The evil Ralph Rancid, though, intends for the Buffalo Chips Ranch to become part of his spread, and will stop at nothing to make sure he gets it. Can Harry Hotline, the editor of the local paper, and his best friend Grizzly Jack help Precious and her Aunt Ima stake their claim before the Buffalo Chips Ranch goes up for auction?

The melodrama is followed by a sing-along intermission and a Mardi Gras themed Vaudeville style musical revue that will keep you laughing with songs, dances, jokes and crazy costumes! It’s a blast for the whole family! The show runs through August 11.

The show is directed by Rebekah Ratterree, musical direction by Bruce Littrell and Bonnie Hausknecht, costumes by Stephanie Bradley and choreography by Daisya Dowen and Rebekah Ratterree.

The Iron Springs Chateau has been bringing family-friendly entertainment to the Pikes Peak Region for over 50 years, and is a great way to spend the evening... whether for the entire family or a memorable date night.

Friday, June 15 is opening night of the Iron Springs Chateau’s Summer and Fall production, “Disturbance at the Delta…or…Here Fishy, Fishy, Fishy”.  Written by owner, Lori Adams-Miller, this show is a hilarious southern melodrama where the evil seafood restaurateur, Led Robster, along with his beautiful accomplice Helena Handbasket, is working hard to swindle the kind and unsuspecting people of Skeeterbunk Delta. Meanwhile, the local fisherman, our stalwart hero Ken Catchem, can’t seem to catch a fish to save his life, and the lovely heroine, Clair Voyant has no catch of the day for the We Know What You Want Café. And what in the world will happen to Our Lady of Maytag church, if the annual fish fry fundraiser has to be cancelled and Father McMuffin can’t pay the church’s taxes?

The melodrama is followed by a sing-along intermission and a Flower Power themed Vaudeville style musical revue packed with songs, dances, jokes and crazy costumes!  It’s a blast for the whole family! This show runs through October 6.

 The show is directed by Lori Adams-Miller, musical direction by Bruce Littrell and Bonnie Hausknecht, costumes by Stephanie Bradley and choreography by Daisya Dowen and Rachel Gressler.

An instant classic!

"Always…Patsy Cline" is based on the touching true story affectionately told through letters written between Patsy and her biggest fan turned confidant, Louise Segar.

A genuine bond of friendship, which began over a cup of coffee, lasted until Cline’s untimely death in 1963. Told through downhome country humor, heartache, and celebration, "Always…Patsy Cline" takes audiences through the ups and downs, from her breakthrough on live radio, to her rise to fame at the Grand Ole Opry.

Featuring 27 unforgettable hits, including “Crazy,” “Walkin’ After Midnight,” “I Fall to Pieces,” and “Sweet Dreams,” this musical memory book is a glorious tribute to the one-of- a-kind sound of Patsy Cline!

The Cruise Above the Clouds Car Show was organized in 1991 by the Chamber of Commerce of Woodland Park, Colorado (20 miles northwest of Colorado Springs on Highway 24).

Only five cars were entered in the show that year. When the Chamber of Commerce withdrew from sponsoring the Car Show, the Above the Clouds Cruisers Car Club made a commitment to continue it.

The Above the Clouds Cruisers Car Club was officially organized in 1998 as a non-profit organization with a dedicated purpose of providing an annual car show for the benefit of local Colorado charities. Since that time, the event has grown to a two-day car show with 200 to 250 car participants and hundreds of spectators.

Located in the heart of Woodland Park near City Hall (Henrietta and Fairview Streets), the Cruise Above the Clouds Car Show is held annually on the third Saturday in September.

The Car Club meets at 6:30 p.m. on the first Friday of each month to plan and monitor the progress of the yearly event. Anyone with an interest in helping with the car show is invited to attend.
