I am and always will be a theatre geek. When I was a little kid I would get annoyed playing house during kindergarten recess because the other kids didn't care about a plot, following a story line, creating characters. They just pretended to cook and wash dishes. There was no drama, no flare! I found myself acting out one woman plays at home. Thankfully my sister was as much an imaginative performer as I was and would join me in playing out these made up scenarios.

Then high school hit and I fully immersed myself in all things theatre. I was in just about every show for my 4 years there, and I continued once I graduated doing community theatre in Las Vegas, which twice earned me mentions in the weekly paper. It's been some years since then, but I'm always supportive of the theatre community, so it's been devastating to see the pandemic hitting that world of entertainment so hard.

But as the old adage states, the show must go on! Boise Little Theater didn't throw in the towel, they soldiered on while taking Covid-19 safety precautions. Rehearsals via Zoom until opening week, face masks at all times unless performing, and of course no live audience in attendance. And now they are set to live-stream their first show of the year this weekend.

In Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play” by Joe Landry, "Spies, murder, love, and other trademarks of Alfred Hitchcock come to life in the style of a 1940s radio broadcast of the master of suspense's earlier films...This spooky, exciting piece is perfect for any space, large or small."

Directed by Diana Holdridge, you can live-stream the show on Friday, February 5th & Saturday, February 6th at 8pm MST. Click here to order your tickets and support Idaho's longest running, volunteer oriented, community theater.
