Theatre Department Takes Show on the Road
Members of the Albertson College of Idaho Theatre Department will take their fall show, Life and Limb, to the Kennedy Center/American College Theatre Festival regional conference this winter. This is the first time an CofI production has been selected for performance at a regional conference. ACI's production was one of only four selected to perform from a seven-state region including: Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Wyoming, Colorado, Montana, and Alaska. The entire cast and crew will take the set, costumes, and props to Central Washington University in February to perform two shows for hundreds of college theatre students and faculty. The play will be adjudicated by two members of the national office of Kennedy Center/American College Theatre Festival to determine if the group will perform at the Kennedy Center in the spring. 'This is a tremendous opportunity for ACI's theatre department to showcase our strong student and faculty talents and share our work with the hundreds of other theatre students and faculty from around our region,' Department Chair Joe Golden said. 'Albertson College has been steadily gaining a strong reputation for quality theatre in our area and now we are able to take that message to an even wider audience.' The acting and technical company of Life and Limb includes: Marc Ewins, James Auw, Shea Hall, Alyssa Martin, David Ketchum, Matt Lloyd, Andrew Lloyd, Brent Houston, Hongmey Zhen, Aika Shima, Chris Ullery, Justine Bushey, Brian Hosefros, Ali Rabe, and Jessica Austin. The production was directed by Joe Golden and designed by Mike Hartwell, Heidi Golden, and Deborah Penrod.

Sawtooth Butterfly Book features Museum Specimens
Photographs of the Orma J. Smith Museum's butterfly collection appear in the recently published Discovering Sawtooth's Butterflies. by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service biologist Ray Vizgirdas. The author spent several days working with Museum curators to take photographs needed for the book. This is an excellent example of both public and scientific use of some of the Museum's extensive natural history collections. The book was published by the Idaho State University Press and is available in the Museum Gift Shop for $13.95.
