A Valentine to the Old West

Virginia City’s very own playwright Allyson Adams has always been bold. Afterall, she was the mayor who arranged for 400 goats to come to the town to clean-up noxious weeds in lieu of using chemicals long before such a move was fashionable. The story hit international news.

The show was high energy, lots of fun and had fantastic choreography.

Big Sky students have talent

The Warren Miller Performing Arts Center was greeted with the sound of basketballs, cheering and singing in Big Sky Broadway’s performance of “High School Musical” on April 5 and 6. It was the largest Big Sky Broadway production to date with 23 Big Sky High School cast and crew members. 

When asked, "What should we expect to hear or what should we be listening for?" Blackbird responded with one word: "Nothing." They said they wanted us to come in with an open mind and no expectations, like a child being exposed to something new – suddenly getting wide-eyed about experiencing something exciting for the first time.

There are two types of art that I love and appreciate the most: art that is fun and easy to enjoy, and art that really engages my mind and makes me think. The other night, Eighth Blackbird brought both of those together for me. The music was enjoyable to listen to and also made me wonder: What is music, and what is art?

Kira Fercho describes her work as a combination of Imposto, Russian Impressionism as well as Western Tonalism.

A calling to create

Billings native Kira Fercho either loves or hates things. There is no in-between. Exercising self-control, she makes one New Year’s resolution per year to do something she hates. One year that was to endlessly listen to Mariah Carey’s music. “And now I love it,” she said.
