Rick Miller in BOOM @ Argyros Performing Arts Center
7:00 pm
An explosive solo performance that documents the music, culture, and politics that shaped the Baby Boom generation (1945-1969). BOOM takes us through 25 turbulent years and gives voice to influential politicians, activists, and musicians. BOOM chronologically documents a historical period stretching from that first ‘boom’ of the Atomic Bomb in 1945 all the way to the Apollo 11 landing on the Moon in 1969. Blending cutting-edge multimedia, unforgettable characters and tour-de-force storytelling in a stunningly staged production, BOOM allows you to experience the global events as they unfold: the Cold War, McCarthyism, Beatlemania, Trudeaumania, JFK, MLK, Mao, Vietnam…The various stories spiral into the “The Summer of Love” and BOOM ends as it began: with a new generation born into a new world order. It’s a mind-blowing experience for audiences of all generations, and with 320 performances already, the most presented new touring show in Canada!

Bald Mountain
Aug 24 @ 9:00 am
Discrete Cirque Series @ Bald Mountain
9:00 am
The cirque series is redefining what mountain running is all about. Starting from the base of a world-famous ski resort, you’ll rally up windswept ridges and glacial cirques to towering peaks, power down a quad-burning descent, break the tape into a festival of live music, food, drink, and vendor tents. The elevation is serious but the mileage is manageable, and the race is as hardcore as you want it to be–beat the pros down to earn legend status and cash prizes, or enjoy the views and let the challenge be its own reward. 2019 Course Description Race starts at River Run Plaza (elevation 5,760′ ft) and goes immediately up the Lower River Run and Canyon ski runs.  The relentless climb taunts you as you push for relief on the final headwall of the Upper Canyon ski run before reaching the Roundhouse Restaurant (7680’ ft). A short downhill traverse on a mellow service road gets you to the Seattle Ridge area of Bald Mountain (elevation 9,150) where you’ll be greeted by views of Sun Valley’s legendary Bowls.  Now the real fun begins, you’ll push to the Bald Mountain ridge with views of 5 mountain ranges and an abandoned Forest Service lookout. ...
