From the Studio: Red Bird Theatre presents Into the Woods

Spokane Public Radio

Red Bird Theatre is presenting "Into the "Woods," a musical for the whole family that puts a modern twist on the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, beginning Thursday and continuing through September 29 at The Salvation Army Kroc Center in Coeur d'Alene. Principals involved in the production stopped by the studio for an interview with Verne.  Listen to Kylee, as the Witch, sing "Stay With Me," and Kenzi, as Little Red, sing "I Know Things Now." 

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.
