Upcoming events

NOTICE, AS OF 3/16/20: Due to the rapidly evolving situation surrounding the COVID-19/Coronavirus outbreak, the McCall Arts and Humanities Council has decided to cancel all remaining Cabin Fever programming for the 2020 season, including our last Stage Flight event (originally scheduled for April 3). Current recommendations from the CDC support not gathering in groups whenever possible, to help discourage the spread of the virus within our communities and especially to at-risk groups.

All registrations, as well as Stage Flight tickets purchased online, will be refunded by March 31. Those wishing to donate their refund to support the MAHC during this time, please contact the organization at mccallartshumanities@gmail.com. 

We’re looking forward to bringing you more arts and humanities programming in upcoming months, as this unique situation allows. Visit our website atwww.mccallarts.org to keep up with MAHC news and coming attractions.

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" — A memorable (& nearly sold-out) show! 
  • Friday, April 3: "The Most Amazing Woman I Know" — Canceled (see above).  


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.
