Everyone knows its good for the community to support local businesses and projects, especially in these economic times. Well, heres an opportunity to put your money where your buy local mouth is: The world premiere of the brand-new Olivia Rox! an independent film that was shot entirely in Boulder, using an all-local cast and crew is taking place tonight in Boulder. Movies just dont get more community-oriented than that!
Olivia Rox! tells the family-friendly story of ten-year-old Olivia Roxamillion, or Olivia Rox for short (played by local singer-songwriter Olivia Hill). Theres trouble in Olivias town: Puppies are missing, and the animal shelter, already close to bankruptcy, will be forced to close if the mystery isnt solved.
Olivia is helped by her father, Dr. Rox (critically acclaimed musician Warren Hill), an off-the-wall scientist/inventor whos in charge of designing top-secret projects for Uncle Sam himself. Shes got to figure out who stole the puppies; it could be the sinister Sly Fox, who wants animals for scientific testing, or Miss Incutane, owner of the animal shelter, who could be selling the puppies secretly to animal testers in order to keep her business open. Meanwhile, somehow the money must be raised to help keep the shelter open. Will Olivias brand-new song, which shell reveal at the benefit concert, be able to raise the funds? And furthermore, is Boulder the home of the new and improved Hannah Montana? Find out at 6 p.m. at the Boulder Theater, 2032 14th Street; tickets are $10 to $18.
