Kirby Heyborne, an actor known for his roles in The Best Two Years and The RM, is coming to collaborate with Rexburg Cultural Arts to host July’s two-day art stroll at the Romance Theater.
The event will start Friday, July 7 from 5 to 9 p.m. and will continue to Saturday, July 8 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Various events will be held all day long.
The activities to take place on Friday include an adaptive art show and a volunteer fair at the Romance Theater at 5 p.m., a free showing of The Sons of Provo at 6 p.m., and “KIRBYOKE,” a play off of karaoke, at 7:30 p.m.
Saturday’s activities will include:
— A showing of The RM at 10 a.m.
— A showing of The Singles Ward at noon
— A Q&A session with Heyborne at 2:30 p.m.
— A showing of The Best Two Years at 3 p.m.
— A live show by Heyborne at 7 p.m.
Friday’s activities will be free, whereas Saturday’s events require a ticket which can be purchased on Rexburg Cultural Arts website. Prices range from $5 to $30 depending on the access and number of events one will attend.
Unlike prior Art Strolls, there is only one featured guest — Kirby Heyborne. He plans to run the art show as a free movie marathon.
Kirby will also host KIRBYOKE — a play on karaoke where participants will get the opportunity to sing and have a good time with the actor himself. KIRBYOKE will be treated as a karaoke showcase where guests can audition online to get the chance to perform. Auditions can be submitted online through the Rexburg Cultural Arts website.
“It’s so cool that a local celebrity will be interacting with the community,” said Gavin Corbitt, a sophomore studying biology at BYU-Idaho. “Kirby’s movie The Best Two Years is one of my favorites!”
