From the Studio: Theatre Arts for Children

Spokane Public Radio

We were pleased to welcome to the studio today Director Kristin Naudit and actors Seth Absalonson, Leny Mannino and Teagan Reese of Theatre Arts for Children, who gave us a sneak peek of their latest production: “Mary Poppins, Jr.” A stage adaptation of the classic Disney musical, it centers on the eponymous magical nanny and the family she comes to save.

Performances will be at 7 PM on March 1, 3 PM & 7 PM on March 2, and 2 PM on March 3, with more showtimes next week.

This play is 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.
