Theater Week 2016: Spokane Civic Theatre Presents "Beauty and the Beast"

As part of our Theater Week at SPR, we are talking with various theater groups, university departments, and more that represent the body of theatrical drama happenings in the Spokane area.  Today we had the pleasure of talking with the folks from Spokane Civic Theatre about their opening of Disney's Beauty and the Beast.  Kaitlin Webster (playing Belle), Cecil Trail (playing Gaston), and Jack Siebel (playing Beast) talked about the show along with music director Carolyn Jess and director Jack Phillips.  Beauty and the Beast opens Friday, September 9 and runs through October 9.

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.
