The collaborators on Chess are giants of rock music and rock musicals,(Abba & Tim Rice) and here they have created a complex rock opera that played to full Broadway houses and standing ovations. In this musical, the ancient game becomes a metaphor for romantic rivalries, competitive gamesmanship, super­power politics, and international intrigues. The pawns in this drama form a love triangle: the loutish American chess star, the earnest Russian champion, and a Hungarian American female assistant who arrives at the international chess match in Merano, Italy with the American, but falls for the Russian. From Bangkok to Budapest the players, lovers, politicians, and spies manipulate and are manipulated to the pulse of a monumental rock score that includes "One Night in Bangkok" and "Heaven Help My Heart”

Our clients, customers, and guests safety is are our number one priority.   Our staff will be here to make sure everything is clean, sanitized, and ready for guests.   We will monitor and assist guests in social distancing while attending a live performance from the MTI actors and performers.


The Music Theatre of Idaho has a plan in place for protecting our patrons, as well as our current cast members. All Cast members are being asked the 4 Big questions regarding COVID-19 every time they enter a building, as well as temperature checks, and Social distancing when possible. 

The Nampa Civic Center has rolled out these rules for now-

  1. Sanitizing stations throughout the building and at every entrance door

  2. Signage for Social distancing guidelines posted. Tape on the floor outside the theater and in the concession and bathrooms for guests.

  3. The facility will be cleaned and sanitized by current guidance given.

  4. New filtration systems in our HVAC system


 The Music Theatre of Idaho will be working alongside The Nampa Civic Center to continue to evaluate and adjust our rules as Phase 3 and 4 of Governor Little's Rebound Idaho regulations are announced.
