coming to Whidbey
A new theater company, the Whidbey Island Retro Theater, is planning its first production.
The play is called Inside Nuremberg, and was written by Clinton resident Richard Williams. It will open July 18 at Bayview Community Hall.
Inside Nuremberg takes place in postwar Nuremberg, Germany during the war crimes trials of the surviving high-ranking Nazis.
Volunteers who would like to help out are needed and much appreciated. The company needs just about everything required to produce a community theater production including a director, stage manager, set design and construction, lighting and sound technicians and costumes.
Auditions for actors will be announced at a later date. For info on how to help contact Joy Williams any day after noon at 730-1469 or by e-mail at
Art show looks

The show will be held from noon to 8 p.m. Thursday,
April 24 in the Front Room gallery at the Bayview Cash Store.
This show honors survivors of sexual abuse and gives them the opportunity to display their art and learn more about the healing process by sharing with others.
There will be resources on hand, as well as a CADA representative and a therapist experienced in helping people who have been sexually abused.
Everyone is welcome to submit art, and the public is invited to view the show.
CADA gratefully acknowledges the generosity of Goosefoot for its support of the exhibit.
