Twins who are separated, girls disguised as boys and mistaken identity — these are the basic elements of Twelfth Night, one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies, coming to Driggs on Tuesday, April 7.

For the third year in a row, Teton Valley Education Foundation is bringing  the Utah Shakespearean Festival to Teton High in Driggs to perform. Eight actors play 18 different roles in the carnival style production of Twelfth Night; the public performance is at 7 p.m. Dark Horse has tickets ($5 each) now available.

During the day, THS students will both see the 75-minute performance and be able to take theater workshops in topics ranging from stage combat to understanding Shakespearean text.

Tickets are also on sale at Corner Drug, High Peaks Physical Therapy and from Teton High School Drama students, and will be availabe at the door the evening of the performance.

See you there!

As you can see, the links to our blog are increasing in number. Eva and I just added Teton County Library, where she works full-time (except for Thursdays, like today, when I’m lucky enough to have her — and sometimes Ella and Ollie as helpers — here at Dark Horse!)

They have this great series — 92Y — that involves broadcasts of a variety of people about a variety of issues. The next one, April 7, is Jerry Seinfield and Carole Leifer — and in June, a “Forum of Sustainable Global Enterprise” with Al Gore and others. Check ’em out!

… If you don’t want to go through the Library web-site, the direct link is: http://www.tclib.org/index.php/site/events/live_broadcasts_from_92y/

Earle Layser of Alta, author of I Always Did Like Horses and Women: Enoch Cal Carrington’s Life Story, was in recently to tell us that his book has been nominated for a Spur Award, given by the Western Writers of America.

It’s also up for three different literary recognitions from the Wyoming State Historical Society.

Way to go, Earle!

We’ll let you know more when we know more. And, of course, in the meantime, pick up your own signed copy at Dark Horse Books……..

Another fun, community-building event coming up —Michael Hurwitz and Jerry Linn will be “Singin’ Happy Trails” during the Senior Center lunch at noon next Tuesday, March 31 in the Driggs City Center Building.

Hurwitz and Linn, who have teamed up with musicians such as B.B. King and Townes Van Zandt, will perform family-style entertainment featuring traditional and original cowboy songs.  According to Gretchen Notzold, both “were were born on ranches… they can ride, they can sing, they can make you laugh and cry…..”

“Happy Trails” is a free program from Teton County Library (in Jackson) — everyone’s invited — thanks to support from Teton County Library Foundation, and kicks off a year-long series of outreach programs presented by the Alta Branch Library and Valley of the Tetons Library in Victor.  The monthly events will focus on bringing easy-to-use resources from the two libraries directly to seniors, including “Talking Books,” books on CD, large-print books and access to historical photos.

The Senior Center is located in the Driggs City Center Building at 60 S. Main St. in downtown Driggs.

Lots to do ’round here right now: the Dog Derby Fun-Jor fundraiser today and Nina Finnegan’s benefit tomorrow are just two of the activities we’ve already posted (scroll on down to see the details.) 

And must mention that Jane Linville-Wiens was in, and as if she didn’t have to do with puttin’ on the Dog Derby, daughter Hannah is Yertle the Turtle in Suessical the Musical.  Matinees are today and tomorrow at the Center for the Arts in Jackson (it’s a production of the Off Square Theater Company.) Haven’t heard if there are other Teton Valley performers, but Dr. Seuss continues to entertain, now doesn’t he!

Lastly, on a serious note, our thoughts and prayers go out to the many friends and loved ones of Kathryn Miller, whose memorial is tomorrow in Jackson at the Village.  She was truly a great woman of Teton Valley (and I believe that’ll be the largest understatement of the day.)
