Clearwater Valley News: Carve pumpkins at park this Sunday

Great news for theater lovers! I met up with three members of the Kamiah Characters high school theater group last week at the KHS library. Octavio Spencer and sisters Laura and Kara Dow are excited about a new play they are working on this fall. It is a Star Trek spoof, called “Star Track- the Expedition Menace.” I enjoyed watching two of the Kamiah Characters’ productions last year- “Let’s Hang Him and Read the Will” and “How the West Was Won- Black Hat Optional.” They are fun and light plays that allow the students to try on new personalities and provide a creative outlet. I will keep you posted when performance dates are scheduled. You can bet I will be there!
