3rd - 2014 50 Hour Slam Screening
On May 3rd, 2014 the 50 HOUR SLAM premieres this year’s top 16 local shorts films at the Bing Crosby Theater at 6 pm. This is the festival’s fourth screening of local short films, all 3 to 6 minutes in length and all created within a period of 50 hours. And as with every 50 HOUR SLAM, the competitors were given the additional challenge of incorporating three different elements in their film as part of the SLAM’S “Secret Criteria”. This year, the criteria that had to be included in each entry centered on using a safety pin as a prop, solving a riddle to locate and shoot a well-known local landmark, and using one of the four historical still photos of a Spokane park to inspire the film’s theme. This was the SLAM’s way of celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Riverfront Park & EXPO 74 as well as the rich icons of our glorious city.

This is more than just a screening. It is an arts event with live performances from local poets and popular local bands WATER MONSTER AND MARSHALL MCLEAN BAND. There will also be an exhibit of work from young local photographers from Spokane Falls Community College that will show Spokane as captured through their lens. And of course, there will be one screening session of all the Finalist Slam films and the audience will be given the opportunity to vote on both their favorite film (which will receive THE 2014 HIP CLIP Award) and for best young photographer from SFCC. The event begins at 6:00pm and it’s not to be missed!

DATE: MAY 3, 2014
At the BING CROSBY THEATER (901 West Sprague Ave)

7th-25th - WICKED @ The INB Performing Arts Center
Back by “Popular” demand. Variety calls WICKED "a cultural phenomenon,” and when it last played Spokane in 2011, it broke box office records and sold out in record time. Winner of 35 major awards, including a Grammy and three Tony Awards, WICKED is “Broadway’s biggest blockbuster” (The New York Times).

Long before that girl from Kansas arrives in Munchkinland, two girls meet in the land of Oz. One - born with emerald green skin - is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. How these two grow to become the WICKED Witch of the West and Glinda the Good makes for "the most complete - and completely satisfying - new musical in a long time" (USA Today).

Starring in this theatrical comedy is PETER STORY. Peter has appeared in primetime shows on all three major networks--some of his favorite credits include CSI (directed by Quentin Tarantino), Without a Trace, Ugly Betty and recurring roles on Jay Leno’s The Tonight Show and Rob Lowe’s The Lyon’s Den. He stars opposite Steve Guttenberg in the cheesy horror film, Cornered, and can be seen opposite Weed’s Elizabeth Perkins in the hilarious short, Le Chat Est Mort.

He is a proud alum of the New Harmony Project and an avid storyteller with The Moth.

Peter's story of how he and his wife won a dream wedding competition was just featured nationally on NPR’s The Moth Radio Hour, a show featuring the country's best storytellers.

Commenting on the show, Peter said, “It's a great recipe for a night out: a little storytelling blended with some comedy and a dash of sage wisdom from the book. A delicious evening of entertainment.”

When Mars and Venus collide, the adventures are earth-shatteringly hysterical.

The entire family will have a blast, especially as you sing along with Brown’s soon to be hits “Airport Shrimp Blues” and “TV Cookin Ain’t Like No Other Cookin”.
