Amid jokes, wisecracks and tomfoolery, the Sun Valley Center for the Arts made major announcements at its annual Fools Day celebration on Monday, April 1. Artistic Director Kristin Poole took to the stage at the Liberty Theatre in Hailey, above, to announce upcoming Big Idea projects, which include a plethora of artistic exhibitions, film screenings and lectures—including one by award-winning author Cheryl Strayed. Kristine Bretall, The Center’s director of performing arts, added to the previously announced summer concert series with a promising lineup of comedy and musical performances, including a reprise of the sell-out International Guitar Night and a special concert by blues icon Keb’ Mo’. Company of Fools’ new artistic director, Scott Palmer, closed the evening by announcing the theater company’s 2019-20 season. The four-play schedule kicks off with the Pulitzer-winning comedy “Crimes of the Heart” on June 26. A detailed preview of the full season will appear in the April 10 issue of the Idaho Mountain Express.
