Today's Features

  • It’s a rare occasion when two theatres can come together to coordinate a show to bring to Los Alamos. It is even more rare when an actor from Albuquerque brings a show to Los Alamos,  which he plans to tour the country with, hoping to eventually end up on Broadway. Jim Cady of the Adobe Theater in Albuquerque has that goal for “The Unauthorized Afterlife of Eugene O’Neill.” Performances at the Los Alamos Little Theatre are a step toward helping him further realize that goal.
    “The Unauthorized Afterlife of Eugene O’Neill” just finished a run at Warehouse 21 in Santa Fe. There were two performances, both of which resulted in thunderous applause and standing ovations.

  •     Greg Abate, considered one of the top saxophonists in the world, will play bebop jazz at 7 p.m. Friday at Ashley Pond as part of the Los Alamos County Summer Concert Series.
    After graduating from the Berklee College of Music in the mid 70s, he started his own ensemble called “Channel One,” but soon quit to play lead alto sax for the Ray Charles Orchestra.
    He stayed on with the orchestra for a couple of years then went back to his own band and sound, and then joined the Artie Shaw Orchestra, where he played tenor sax.
    However, he ran into problems with both bands because he was unable to improvise. The bands were too structured and Abate considered himself a very cool jazz musician.

  • What is a turtle’s favorite food? Does a snake feel smooth or rough? What does a scorpion look like under ultraviolet light? Join animal care expert Jennifer Macke from 10-11 a.m. June 24 at Pajarito Environmental Education Center for an informative class about the live animals on exhibit. Macke will discuss what each animal eats and share some facts about each one. The program will answer many questions about local reptiles and amphibians.
    Kids of all ages will get to touch and feed some of the animals. They will dig worms from PEEC’s worm farm, to feed Elf the turtle. They will compare how an animal’s skin is different, depending on whether it lives in water or on land.

    For four years, a dedicated team of dendrophiles (tree-lovers) has been scouring Los Alamos for the biggest tree of each species that appears in the county.
