From the Studio: Firth J Chew Studio Theatre

Spokane Public Radio

Creative Director Jake Schaefer and Constellations director Pam Kingsley of Spokane Civic Theatre's Firth J Chew Studio arrived for their interview alongside actor and Spokane newcomer Max Elinsky, who holds a starring role in their upcoming production. This 70-minute play begins with a simple encounter between Roland, a beekeeper, and Marianne, a quantum physicist. From there, the audience is taken on a spellbinding, romantic journey that defies the boundaries of the world we think we know and questions the difference between choice and destiny.

Performances will be at 7:30 PM Thursday-Saturday and 2 PM Sunday beginning on November 9, with more at the same times each week through December 2.

This production is rated PG-13 and may not be suitable for all audiences.

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.
