The Journey Continues: Year Two of the Wood River Trails Coalition’s Trail Monitoring Program In-Person

When: November 10, 2022 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Where: The Community Library

In the summer and fall of 2021, the Wood River Trails Coalition (WRTC) completed a comprehensive trail use survey. In 2022, with support from the SPUR Foundation and the Valley’s trail community, WRTC was able to purchase additional trail counting devices and increase the scope of their trail monitoring program in 2022. An estimated 130,000+ trail user days were recorded across the Ketchum Ranger District in 2021. Join WRTC Program Coordinator Emily Rodrigue to hear totals from 2022, along with exciting new ways land managers are putting this data to work. You will also get to see year-to-year comparisons from select locations, learn about the new Ground Truthing Volunteer Program, and where trail monitoring can go from here. A question and answer session will follow the presentation. Registration is recommended to attend in person. The program will also be livestreamed and available to watch later.

24hrs in Sun Valley: October- Natalie Battistone- The Spot

Natalie Battistone LIVES for the fall. The Marketing/Creative Director for local theater company The Spot considers October her favorite month and can be found celebrating it by visiting a good pumpkin patch (like Tubb’s Berry Farm in Twin Falls) or reading Dracula. An original member of The Spot since they opened in 2015, Natalie recently directed The Spot’s production of The Sound Inside and is involved behind the scenes or in-stage with most of the company’s production. She is also a freelance actor, acting coach, and director, working with theater scenes in various spots from directing commercials to helping her partner, Spot founder and Community School drama teacher, Kevin Wade, with school productions. Her and Kevin met at the Harvard Repertory Theater graduate MFA acting program in 2014; they live in west Ketchum with their rescue dog Ophelia (named for the character in Hamlet). When not involved in the theater, the introverted Natalie enjoys foraging, birdwatching, and writing poetry. How does your ideal morning start in the fall? Natalie: I wake up and go to the Konditorei for the coffee and its never-ending refills and the Konditorei Breakfast [two eggs, meat, toast]. They used to have donuts on Saturdays but …

Where: The Argyros, 120 Main St S, Ketchum, ID 83340, USA

PASS OVER by ANTOINETTE NWANDU OCTOBER 20-23,2022 @ The Argyros Elizabeth and Thomas Tierney Theater co-directed by SAVINA BARINI + RONEY JONES PASS OVER is generously sponsored by ALI LONG In-Person on stage with a fully vaccinated company *approved by AEA SHOW DESCRIPTION: “Moses and Kitch stand around on the corner—talking smack, passing the time, and hoping that maybe today will be different. As they dream of their promised land, a stranger wanders into their space with his own agenda and derails their plans. Emotional and lyrical, Pass Over crafts everyday profanities into poetic and humorous riffs, exposing the unquestionable human spirit of young men stuck in a cycle that they are desperately trying to escape. A provocative riff on the Book of Exodus and Waiting for Godot, Pass Over is a remarkable work of politically-charged theater by a bold new American voice.” There have been several landmark productions of Pass Over since its premiere. The Spot is proud to share that we will be producing the newest version of the play, revised in 2021 to offer a different ending to this cycle of violence and injustice– one of hope. “THRILLING, POETICAL, and UNFLINCHING.”- Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune SUITABILITY: PASS …

A reading of IRONBOUND

When: October 28, 2022 @ 7:00 pm
Where: Argyros Performing Arts Center, 120 Main St S, Ketchum, ID 83340, USA

Written by Pulitzer Prizer-Winner Martyna Majok Directed by MacArthur “Genius Grant” Fellow Samuel D. Hunter Featuring David Janseki, Nick Sacks & Aly Wepplo At a bus stop in a run-down New Jersey town, Darja, a Polish immigrant cleaning lady, is done talking about feelings; it’s time to talk money. Over the course of 22 years, three relationships, and three presidencies, Darja negotiates for her future with men who can offer her love or security, but never both. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Martyna Majok’s IRONBOUND is a darkly funny, heartbreaking portrait of a woman for whom love is a luxury—and a liability—as she fights to survive in America. The reading is directed by MacArthur “Genius Grant” Fellow and Idaho-native Samuel D. Hunter (THE WHALE; A CASE FOR THE EXISTENCE OF GOD). Majok is Sun Valley Playwright’s Residency’s 2022-2023 playwright. This reading of IRONBOUND is part of SVPR’s events to kick off Majok’s year-long engagement. During 2022-2023, she will be offered substantive time, space, and resources to write a new work for the stage. Part of her residency will include writing time at the historic Ernest and Mary Hemingway House in Ketchum, which is managed by The Community Library Association as a private …
