February events around the Treasure Valley

Updated: Jun 28

Normally, I'd like to start the monthly update with news regarding writing, acting, directing or anything creative that I've been hard at work on.

Let's just say 2020 has lifted off with a slow start.

After completing Of Snow Forts and Santa back in November, the act of writing on a daily basis has been a slow climb. In January, I did cobble together a handful of sports articles, writing mostly about the Boise State Broncos men's and women's basketball teams. I also managed to fit in a few pieces on the state of the Boston Celtics.

Outside of that, creative juices seemed to be on hiatus, until last week, when I knocked out three pages of The Dragon Slayer. This is the first draft of book two in the "Magic of Crieo" series and continues the events of The Blue Gem.

This month's update is short and sweet but just because I am moving in molasses doesn't mean there isn't a lot going on around the Treasure Valley in February. Check out a few of those events below.

Be bold. Be kind.


- Opal Theatre is back on stage with The Humans by Stephen Karam. The show opens February 20 and runs through Feburary 29 at the Gem Center for the Arts in Boise.

- Also on stage in February is Slow Food by Wendy MacLeod, now showing at Boise Contemporary Theater. The show began January 29 and runs through February 15.

- February 15 is the 11th Annual Mostly Muff "Foundation" Show at the Visual Arts Collective. While Mostly Muff has retired, this benefit show continues, headlined in 2020 by Purring Mantis. Proceeds from this show will be donated to PERIOD Boise.

- Premiering on February 12 with a one-night screening is the movie Like Love. Written, produced by, and starring Boise's Lily Yasuda, this feature film was shot primarily in Boise and features talent (in front of the camera and behind-the-scenes) from right here in Boise.
