LEWISTON, Idaho – Season tickets are on sale for the 2014-15 LCSC Silverthorne Artist’s Series. This is the first time season tickets have been offered for the entire series. The series is offering several films, including two regionally-produced documentaries, and LCSC Theatre Program productions. Tickets for the upcoming films and scheduled performances come in two packages. A film package, which includes six films, is $20. A Theatre, Music, and Film package, which includes two concerts and LCSC Theatre Program performances in addition to the film package, is $60.
The film series kicks off September 6 & 7 at Center for Arts & History with a test screening of the Idaho-produced documentary Add the Words – a film by Cammie Pavesic and Michael D. Gough. Since 2006, the LGBT and human rights communities have asked Idaho lawmakers to add the words “sexual orientation and gender identity” to the Idaho Human Rights Act. In 2014 they mounted a civil disobedience campaign related to that effort. Add the Words documents their story. The screenings take place at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 6 and 3 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 7. Admission is free. In addition to the film screening, workshops in partnership with the LCSC Theatre Program will be offered on September 8 at Center for Arts & History. The workshops will be conducted by Pavesic and Gough, along with Boise lighting technician Dan Allers. Allers, lighting designer for the BSU Morrison Center and former LCSC student body president, also worked on the film. For more information on the workshops, call 208.792.2243.

“This new expanded series is part of an effort to increase involvement with the community,” said Debi Fitzgerald, Director, Center for Arts & History and Continuing Education. “This is the first time the series has been offered as a season ticket package since the days when the LCSC Artist’s Series was functioning in the 1980’s and 1990’s. A new addition is collaboration with the LCSC Theatre Program to offer theater productions as part of the series. The past few years the Silverthorne series has offered four to five events, and this year we have expanded to nine, with three additional events offered at a reduced rate to season ticket holders.”
The LCSC Silverthorne Artist’s Series is sponsored by the Associated Students of Lewis-Clark State College and the LCSC Office of Continuing Education.
