From the Studio: Spokane Civic Theatre Presents "Sordid Lives"

We made it to the end of this jam-packed theater hour! The final interviewees were folks from Spokane Civic Theatre who are involved in the upcoming production of Sordid Lives.  Verne talked with director Lance Babbitt as well as actors Jhon Goodwin (playing Wardell) and Jamie Sciarrio (playing LaVonda). The show opens this Friday, January 29th at 7:30pm and runs through Sunday, February 21st.

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.
