With their interview this morning, director Melody Deatherage and actors Nick Griep and Jeremy Urann piqued our interest in Spokane Civic Theatre’s latest production: “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.” Adapted from the award-winning novel of the same name, it follows a brilliant 15-year-old boy with behavioral difficulties as he sets out to solve the murder of his neighbor’s dog.

Performances will be at 7:30 PM this Thursday, Friday and Saturday, plus a 2 PM matinee on Sunday, with more shows each weekend through April 14.

This play 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.
