From the Studio: Spokane Civic Theatre presents "Follies"

Creative Director Jake Schaefer gave us the details on Spokane Civic Theatre's upcoming In Concert production of “Follies” with Music Director Henry McNulty, who performed some selections from the show alongside actors Jonah Taylor, Elizabeth Martin, and Robbie Starnegg.

The musical centers on a reunion of ex-Follies performers hosted by theatrical impresario Dimitri Weissmann in his crumbling theatre— and amongst the reminiscing, two middle-aged couples confront some unpleasant truths about their past and present, before coming face-to-face with the future.

Performances will be at 7:30 PM on January 4 & 5, and 2 PM on January 6.

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.
