Sirens, a 'tropical mid-life crisis' at Interplayers

Interplayers Professional Theatre presents 'Sirens,' a tropical mid-life crisis, April 4 through 20. Triply talented composer, performer and director Christian Duhamel comes from New York City to guide an expert cast of four. As hapless Sam, Artistic Director for Coeur d'Alene Summer Theatre, Roger Welch, returns to Interplayers for the first time since 2010. Sam's hilariously puzzled spouse, Rose, is played by Resident Artist Tamara Schupman ('It's a Wonderful Life'), and famed local opera soprano Dawn Wolski makes her comedy debut as the diva-like Siren and two other roles. Nicholas Witham rounds out the cast as a former rival for Rose's affections. Last seen as a 16-year-old in this season's 'Speech and Debate,' Witham now plays a man in his fifties, who inexplicably still looks astoundingly young.

'Sirens' opens April 4th and plays through April 20th. Performances are at 7:30 Wednesdays through Saturdays, with 2pm matinees on Sundays (April 7th and 14th), and Saturdays (April 13th and 20th). Talkbacks with the cast will occur each Thursday and Saturday.

Big Band at the Bing: The One and Only Tommy Dorsey Orchestra

This legendary, swing era, Big Band will take the stage at the Bing and transport you back in time. Known as the 'Sentimental Gentleman of Swing', and undeniably one of the best all-around dance bands, they mastered creating smooth, brilliantly composed arrangements at superb dance and listening tempos. Their mark in history reaches far.

Their rich history includes Ol' Blue Eyes. Frank Sinatra's career blossomed with Tommy. Our own Bing Crosby recorded and performed with Tommy Dorsey. Two hundred eighty-six Billboard hits and seventeen number one hits are just a couple of their many accomplishments. In recent years they have preformed for a Presidential Inauguration and continue to sell out venues all over to all ages.

Now you can experience them live. The Arts-Lewis and Clark Music Department presents The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, live at the Bing Crosby Theater, Tuesday, April 9 at 7:30 pm. It's a fund raiser put on by the Lewis & Clark Instrumental Music Parents' Association (LCIMPA).

The Orchestra has given Lewis and Clark Jazz One Ensemble the rare honor of opening the show. They will tackle the difficult music of Radiohead's 'Bodysnatchers', as well as other compositions.
