Upcoming events


It’s kind of like stage fright, but a lot more fun. Your stories will take the audience on a personal & shared FLIGHT of fancy, 7 minutes at a time. We know you have great stories to tell; please share one with us!


  • Friday, February 28: "Crossroads"
  • Friday, April 3: "The Most Amazing Woman I Know"


Straight from the Last Frontier comes a community storytelling delight! Recent Idaho transplant, Rebecca Havens fell in love with this type of community storytelling while living in Juneau, Alaska. Now a member of the McCall community, she felt compelled to bring this wonderful program to her new hometown where she’s sure it will be a natural fit and new community favorite.

Each Stage Flight event features seven, seven-minute personal stories from seven different storytellers speaking on a designated theme. All events will be held at the Alpine Playhouse, 1210 Roosevelt Ave. in McCall, and each storytelling event begins at 7 PM, sharp.

From crass to delicate, told by wallflowers or clowns, live stories are mesmerizing and raw. Don’t think fables, ghost or children’s stories. This is not a theatrical performance, but real life stories from your friends, acquaintances, and, quite possibly, someone you haven't yet met.

Your $7 ticket fee will support the McCall Arts & Humanities Council and the Alpine Playhouse—two of your favorite local nonprofits! All proceeds from coffee & food sales during the event also benefit the MAHC and Alpine Playhouse (so eat up!). 


House Rules

  • Each speaker has a 7-minute time limit—this is very strict, to make sure there's time for everyone.
  • Each speaker will receive a sound-signal at the 5-minute mark and a “times up” sound-signal at the 7-minute mark (= wrap up NOW).
  • No cursing; no graphically “adult” content.
  • Smiles & loud clapping are highly encouraged.
