From the Studio: Ignite! Community Theatre Presents "Play On!"

Ignite! Community Theatre presents "Play On!" which opens next Friday, September 18th at 7:30pm. Cast members Kim Roberts (playing Polly), Tanya Morton-Brownlee (playing Violet), and Jerry Uppinghouse (playing Henry) stopped by the studio to chat with Verne today and give a sneak-peek of their upcoming performances.  Tickets available now.

Verne Windham got his start at Spokane Public Radio 20 years ago. “I came in to complain and they hired me.” He’s now the Program Director, as well as the host of Morning Classical and Concert of the Week. When choosing music for Morning Classical, Verne likes to keep the agenda as broadly defined as possible. For Concert of the Week, he focuses on the best of recent local performances, mostly classical in nature. For many years, Verne was also the conductor of the Spokane Youth Orchestra. He enjoys gardening, his vintage car and playing French horn.
