With a view of Bald Mountain forming a backdrop for the audience, Field Daze Event Series co-founders Cathy Reinheimer & Lila Claghorn are thrilled to kick off Field Daze second summer season! We have a jam-packed open-air live summer schedule which will open with a workshop production of the new play, from Idaho playwright and MacArthur genius award winner Samuel D. Hunter – A Case For the Existence of God - directed by Paul Lazar. Later on in the summer, Field Daze welcomes the return of the Valley's beloved Caritas Chorale directed by R.L. Rowsey, a weekend of comedy & improv from the Groundlings, a Broadway & Valley performer-packed cabaret with R.L. Rowsey & Friends, an activity-filled Children's Faire, and so much more.
This season, we are grateful to have Laughing Stock Theatre Company's tax deductible status for all ticket purchases and donations. Additionally, we are proudly partnered with a few different companies and sponsors in town, including the Limelight & Warfield Distillery & Brewery. Warfield's mobile-bar will sell Snacks, Organic beer, cocktails featuring their Organic spirits, & Mocktails at each of our events.
After last year's inaugural Field Daze series success, we are forging ahead, continuing to adhere strictly to Ketchum's COVID-safety protocols for outside, public gatherings, capping audience size and keeping it outdoors, all mindful of all the artists and fans. With reduced capacity, accommodating 125 people broken into pods, tickets will likely go fast. For all Field Daze performances, tickets are available at the TICKETS tab above & lawn chairs, blankets and picnics are welcome and encouraged.
We are so excited to have people gather together to enjoy and participate in summer entertainments; a long-overdue respite from the challenges that have faced everyone during COVID-times. Performance tickets $15-$40, with reduced prices for seniors, students, and front line workers. Free parking on the property.
We look forward to seeing you all together again in the field!
