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.

The Hazel Miller Band will perform for an evening filled with R&B, blues, jazz, and soul to benefit the Ella Mae Bransom Sickle Cell Association.

The Ella Mae Bransom Sickle Cell Association, named for the late Ella Mae Gothard-Bransom, provides essential support services to those with Sickle Cell Anaemia, a hereditary blood disorder associated with a number of acute and chronic health problems such as severe infections, attacks of severe pain, stroke, and an increased risk of death. There currently are no medical support services available in Southern Colorado, which means families must travel to Denver to receive treatment and related therapies. This imposes a great deal of stress and expense on these families, many of whom lack the means to properly care for and support loved ones with Sickle Cell.

The volunteers at Ella Mae lend their time and, often, their own expense in supporting our Southern Colorado families, transporting many of them to and from Denver medical services as well as seeing to their needs here at home. This work can only continue with your generous support.

Hazel Miller is not just a great singer, "she is a force of nature!" quotes the Rocky Mountain News. Her voice has been called "stunning, moving and powerful." Hazel has been a sought-after performer in Colorado for the past 24 years. Whether she is singing blues, jazz, pop, or Gospel, her voice charges the songs with a primal dose of genuine soul.

Hazel began her 38-year career in Louisville, Kentucky, where she rose to the top of the music scene. She opened for popular artists such as Mel Torme, James Brown, Temptations, Earl Klugh, Bob James and many others.

The city of Denver singled out Hazel as one of 150 people who make Denver a better place to live. This award was bestowed by the mayor on Nov 22, 2008 at the Colorado History Museum. She has been given several awards for artistic excellence: Best Independent Blues-R&B Recording- 2002; Outstanding Performer at Red Rocks Amphitheater.

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.

The Hazel Miller Band will perform for an evening filled with R&B, blues, jazz, and soul to benefit the Ella Mae Bransom Sickle Cell Association.

The Ella Mae Bransom Sickle Cell Association, named for the late Ella Mae Gothard-Bransom, provides essential support services to those with Sickle Cell Anaemia, a hereditary blood disorder associated with a number of acute and chronic health problems such as severe infections, attacks of severe pain, stroke, and an increased risk of death. There currently are no medical support services available in Southern Colorado, which means families must travel to Denver to receive treatment and related therapies. This imposes a great deal of stress and expense on these families, many of whom lack the means to properly care for and support loved ones with Sickle Cell.

The volunteers at Ella Mae lend their time and, often, their own expense in supporting our Southern Colorado families, transporting many of them to and from Denver medical services as well as seeing to their needs here at home. This work can only continue with your generous support.

Hazel Miller is not just a great singer, "she is a force of nature!" quotes the Rocky Mountain News. Her voice has been called "stunning, moving and powerful." Hazel has been a sought-after performer in Colorado for the past 24 years. Whether she is singing blues, jazz, pop, or Gospel, her voice charges the songs with a primal dose of genuine soul.

Hazel began her 38-year career in Louisville, Kentucky, where she rose to the top of the music scene. She opened for popular artists such as Mel Torme, James Brown, Temptations, Earl Klugh, Bob James and many others.

The city of Denver singled out Hazel as one of 150 people who make Denver a better place to live. This award was bestowed by the mayor on Nov 22, 2008 at the Colorado History Museum. She has been given several awards for artistic excellence: Best Independent Blues-R&B Recording- 2002; Outstanding Performer at Red Rocks Amphitheater.
