This performance is based on the life of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, the Indian lawyer, anti-colonial nationalist, and political ethicist, who employed nonviolent resistance to fight against racial discrimination in South Africa and led the successful campaign for India's independence from British Rule.

When the British left India dividing it into two nations, religious violence broke out and Gandhi was assassinated. His spirit lives on through his messages of nonviolence, unity and harmony and in turn inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world.

The one-hour extravaganza comprises laser animation, 3D visual space effects, and live action in the beginning.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the UCCS Arts Experiences Scholarship.

Double Your Trouble began in the winter months of 2009 with Tennessee Blues guitarist Randy Stephens.

Coming up on what will be the 20th anniversary of SRV's tragic death at Alpine Valley in 1990, the call was put out and quickly answered by veteran musicians Bill Taylor (Bass) and Kevin McBride (Drums).

Immediately it was realized that Stevie's music needed to be kept alive through the essence of 'live' performance.

DYT exists for the sole purpose to entertain audiences with this electric blues genre and what better way than through the music of Stevie Ray Vaughan.

This is a benefit concert for the Sue DiNapoli Ovarian Cancer Society.

Curious Incident tells the story of fifteen-year-old Christopher, who has an extraordinary brain. He is exceptional at mathematics but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life.

He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched, and he distrusts strangers. When he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbor’s dog, he becomes determined to find the true culprit.

His detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a thrilling journey that upturns his world.

This performance is based on the life of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, the Indian lawyer, anti-colonial nationalist, and political ethicist, who employed nonviolent resistance to fight against racial discrimination in South Africa and led the successful campaign for India's independence from British Rule.

When the British left India dividing it into two nations, religious violence broke out and Gandhi was assassinated. His spirit lives on through his messages of nonviolence, unity and harmony and in turn inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world.

The one-hour extravaganza comprises laser animation, 3D visual space effects, and live action in the beginning.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the UCCS Arts Experiences Scholarship.

Double Your Trouble began in the winter months of 2009 with Tennessee Blues guitarist Randy Stephens.

Coming up on what will be the 20th anniversary of SRV's tragic death at Alpine Valley in 1990, the call was put out and quickly answered by veteran musicians Bill Taylor (Bass) and Kevin McBride (Drums).

Immediately it was realized that Stevie's music needed to be kept alive through the essence of 'live' performance.

DYT exists for the sole purpose to entertain audiences with this electric blues genre and what better way than through the music of Stevie Ray Vaughan.

This is a benefit concert for the Sue DiNapoli Ovarian Cancer Society.

Enjoy two exciting events in the newly renovated US Air Force Academy Planetarium dome: the inspiring film "Dream Big: Engineering Our World"; and a Night Sky Safari of planets, constellations and other astronomical objects in the autumn sky.

Learn about the role Colorado Springs played in 19th century scientific advances from local author Steve Ruskin, or how different hop varieties give beers their unique textures at Bristol Brewing Company (and taste it for yourself).

Watch real fire-fighters training at the CSFD's high-tech fire tower. Tour Colorado Springs Utilities' Bailey Water Treatment Plant or sample the naturally filtered water from the many artesian mineral springs which have made Manitou Springs famous.

If you like to cook, sign up for a Science of Cooking Class and discover the effect that water, heat and altitude have on the ingredients in foods as a master chef shares tricks and recipes to create tasty dishes.

Embark on an Underground Adventure at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park (for a special festival price of only $7 per person).  See what happens behind the scenes and watch a live broadcast inside the FOX21 news studio.

Learn about real forensic science in the El Paso County Coroner's Crime Lab.   Kids of all ages will have a blast watching our Cool Science Chemistry Magic show,  or making their own Dippin' Dots with liquid nitrogen, and even the littlest of science fans can enjoy story-time with a real rocket scientist.
