Music, comedy, circus arts come to CMC in Glenwood and Rifle

Family fun and frivolity are on tap when two veterans of film, television and stage, Wells and Woodhead, bring their new show, “Foolz,” to Colorado Mountain College as part of the Jim Calaway Honors Series.

“Foolz” is described as a character-driven amalgam of music, comedy and circus arts. Wells (Henrik Bothe) and Woodhead (Woody Keppel) have performed their one-of-a-kind antics on six continents. Recent appearances include the nationally televised China Comedy Festival from Beijing, the HBO Comedy Festival in Las Vegas and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Their first performance will be Friday, Jan. 21, at 7:30 p.m. in Colorado Mountain College’s New Space Theatre at Spring Valley, south of Glenwood Springs. This performance will honor YouthZone. For nearly three decades, YouthZone has helped to enhance the quality of life for young people and their families through prevention, advocacy, parent education and direct services.

“Foolz” will also be presented on Saturday, Jan. 22, at 7:30 p.m. in the Clough Auditorium of the college’s campus in Rifle. The Grand River Hospital District will be the honoree of this performance. The district serves the health needs of more than 27,000 people in its 1,500-square-mile service territory, much of it in western Garfield County.

Please note that before each show will be a free 6:30 p.m. dessert reception, to publicly thank the concert honorees. At the reception Matt Spencer, chief executive officer of the Colorado Mountain College Foundation, will give a brief update on foundation activities in support of the college’s students.

Tickets are available at the door or by calling 947-8367. For more information, call 947-8367 or go to
