From the Studio: Modern Theater Presents "Man of La Mancha"

Cast of "Man of La Mancha"

Second in line of today's theater double-header here in the studio were the folks of Modern Theater - Spokane.  They were here to give us a preview of their new show Man of La Mancha.  New Associate Artistic Director Troy Nickerson leads a crew of talented singers and actors in this musical, which is set to open this Friday, July 8th at 7:30pm.  Joining him in the studio were Danie McKeever, Brandon Michael, Marlee Andrews, and Zach Baker on piano.

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.
